But the way Cameron's been addressing the problem hasn't won him many fans.
"You've got a swarm of people coming across the Mediterranean, seeking a better life, wanting to come to Britain," Cameron told ITV.
Those comments drew accusations that Cameron was dehumanizing the migrants, some of whom are refugees from the war in Syria.
But Cameron's overarching immigration policy — to tighten border security and deter migrants — has drawn criticism as well.
Months ago, when the European Union was formulating a plan to deal with the thousands of migrants crossing the Mediterranean, Cameron made it clear the U.K. didn't want to be part of their relocation. (Video via United Nations, Sky News)
In response, British Home Secretary Theresa May says the British government is investing in reinforcing fencing in Calais to protect the tunnel. (Video via Channel 4)
