The monthly census (see here, here, here, here and here) done by Help Refugees and L’Auberge des Migrants shows a decreased number of migrants in Calais. There are in the shantytown and in the structures created by the state (containers camp and center Jules Ferry) 8143 people, against 10,188 in September. This corresponds mainly to the self-eviction process observed for two weeks, people fleeing the threat of eviction, which will facilitate the final emptying and destruction of the shantytown.

On the other hand, the number of minors continues to rise against (1496 against 1179 in total, including 1,291 unaccompanied minors against 1022 in September) even though, behind the advertisement the government’s plan remains totally inconsistent.
