Have a problem with AZ? Read about how FRANCE treats illegal immigrants

CACHAN, France -- For dozens of illegal immigrant families, a gymnasium outside Paris has become a temporary home. They sleep shoulder-to-shoulder, their dingy mattresses piled high with necessities and small treasures: cooking pans, diapers, stuffed animals.

The families, mostly Africans, were evicted from France's largest squat on Aug. 17. Riot police stormed the building _ an abandoned dormitory at a prestigious university _ and forced out more than 500 people. Nearly 30 illegal immigrants were put in detention centers. About 200 went to the cramped, dank gymnasium.

  • Aren't we always supposed to emulate Europe? Because they are so enlightened?
