Keeping border personnel in Calais is a must otherwise the French authorities will just open the gates to rid themselves of the immigrants living near Calais.

Isn't that entirely up to the French?

No it isn't.

The agreement is bilateral and part of a number of accords made between the UK and France to aid travellers.

Examples. The border for immigration checks is Calais for traffic travelling from France to UK, and Cheriton (Eurotunnel) Dover (Ferry) for traffic travelling from UK to France. Eurostar has the same arrangement with UK immigration checks conducted at Gare du Nord (Paris), Lille Europe, Calais Frethun and Bruxelles Midi (Brussels) and Schengen immigration checks conducted at St Pancras, Ebbsfleet and Ashford.

It works well for all travellers so I for one would like to keep it.

The current losers of the arrangement are evidently the good citizens of Calais which explains why there are noises from the concerned regional authority. The agreements though are bilateral not dependent on EU membership.
