Macron on migration: Humanity or closed-border policy?

Emmanuel Macron has made his first visit to Calais as French leader. After talking with some migrants and listening to their stories, Macron said he would not allow another makeshift migrant camp to mushroom on the outskirts of the port city. The French president also pressed Britain to provide answers to French demands on the matter of unaccompanied children among these migrants. What to make of Macron's approach to this complex issue?
