French police clear hundreds of migrants from Paris camps

Thursday's operation marked the 59th time that the makeshift camps in Paris have been cleared since 2015, Paris Deputy Mayor Dominique Versini said.

"We want to take back control of our migration policy", Prime Minister Edouard Philippe told a press conference on Wednesday, unveiling a series of measures which he said aimed to strengthen France's "sovereignty".

The French police has stated that they had initiated a crackdown on migrant camps in Paris, forcibly removing more than 1,600 undocumented immigrants.

Effective July 2018, access to full reports will only be available with a subscription.

"I can not allow a risky situation like this. all this can not remain", Paris police chief Didier Lallement told reporters at the scene.

Judge orders Trump to pay $2M for charity foundation misuse
The final outstanding issue, according to the judgement, was the amount that Trump would pay in damages over the Iowa fundraiser. But according to court documents, the Trump Foundation improperly used $2.82 million it received from that fundraiser.

President Emmanuel Macron has been accused of cynically striving to fend off the enchantment of the far suitable right before upcoming year's municipal elections.

Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said the people evacuated on Thursday would be housed in state-sponsored centers while their asylum requests were being processed.

The operation began in pouring rain at around 06:00 (05:00 GMT) near the Porte de la Chapelle.

Thursday's operations covered two of the three big informal camps in Paris, Castaner told FranceInfo.

Residents have long complained of insecurity and unsanitary conditions at the camps, and police officials said they had registered 213 "aggressions" near the Porte de la Chapelle camps this year - not including clashes between migrant groups. It is widely assumed that Mr Macron will face off against far-right leader Marine Le Pen, whom he defeated in the presidential run-off in 2017. Many volunteers from different associations were also present. "The prefects have assured me time and time again that the camps would not go back, but each time have come back", said the mayor of Paris, socialist Anne Hidalgo, who has often criticized the immigration policy of the Government of Macron.
