Hundreds Of Migrants Forced Out Of Makeshift Camp In Paris

Paris: Police Clear Over 1,600 People from Illegal Migrant Squatter Camps

French police dismantled makeshift migrant camps in areas underneath suburban highways in northeast Paris on Thursday, an opportunity for President Emmanuel Macron's government to tout its pledge of getting tough on immigration. "We will continue to evacuate these sites", Castaner said.

The dismantling operation began at dawn and lasted till the early hours of the morning.

Lallement vowed to maintain a police presence in the Porte de la Chapelle and Seine-Saint-Denis area over the coming weeks to ensure that migrants, asylum seekers and refugees would steer clear of the area.

The authorities woke the men, mostly from sub-Saharan Africa and some from the Middle East, at dawn and herded them onto buses that took 1,600 of them to temporary holding facilities in gymnasiums and sports halls elsewhere in the capital.

Since the closure of a huge migrant camp in Calais in 2016, many refugees have moved to Paris, which has repeatedly broken up camps only to see them pop up again in different areas a few months later.

Thursday's operations covered two of the three big informal camps in Paris, Castaner told FranceInfo. According to the calculations of local associations, in Paris living between 1,500 and 3,000 migrants in tents and other shelters precarious. "I don't know where I will go, but I'm glad to go because I will have a roof over my head tonight", she said, as she waited in line for a coach, carrying just a backpack.

On Wednesday Prime Minister Edouard Philippe announced the closure of tent camps, quotas for migrant workers and limits on access to non-urgent healthcare for newly arrived asylum seekers as part of a drive to show that the government is heeding voters' concerns about immigration.

Dominique Versini, the lieutenant of the deputy mayor responsible for refugees, said for his part that numerous migrants "evaporated by Paris" before the announcement of the imminence of the dismantling of the camp.
