On Monday, Britain and France will sign a joint agreement to step up efforts to prevent illegal migrants from crossing the Channel.

According to a media invitation sent by France’s Interior Ministry, French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin will meet with his British colleague Suella Braverman in Paris early Monday morning to sign an agreement.

A French official confirmed that a deal would be reached on Monday, but declined to give more detail about the forthcoming agreement.

Around 40,000 people have crossed the Channel in small boats so far this year, up from 28,526 last year, putting pressure on new British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to find a way to slow the flow.

According to the Telegraph, the Anglo-French agreement would dramatically boost the 200 French officers and volunteers who operate on Channel beaches. France will strive for a “far higher” number of migrants to be prevented from departing.

According to the Telegraph, France will also agree to a joint control centre where British immigration authorities will be stationed. London will pay Paris 60 million pounds ($71 million) to assist with the situation.
