They’re building a wall to keep out
Specifically, the entrance to a rape-fugee hotel.
The Formula 1 hotel is one of 62 locations where the state is planning to construct migrant shelters. The people of Séméac, a village of around 5,000 residents, have taken matters into their own hands by erecting a six feet tall, 60 feet long concrete wall to block access to the facility.
“We not against taking in migrants,” Séméac resident Laurent Teixeira told AFP Monday. “But you have to take account of the citizens.”
Teixeira is worried that the town doesn’t have the resources to host the migrants with a limited number of public services and schools.
“Nothing is planned for the migrants’ daily life,” Teixeira told AFP.
France offered asylum to 20,630 refugees in 2015. Large migrant camps have appeared on the streets of Paris, which has put pressure on the government to build more shelters across the country.
Paris police carried out its 34th mass eviction in two years earlier this month when 2,500 migrants were evacuated from the Porte de la Chapelle area.
