Should we see a new standoff between the Paris town hall and the government on the migrant file? While the two parties had clashed at length on the reception policy and the conditions for evacuating the refugee camps before the municipal elections, the tone is once again rising on this issue.

Hundreds of people crammed on a quay, sleeping on the ground, against the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic: videos recently posted on social networks show the deleterious conditions in which migrants arriving on the Canary Islands are welcomed.

French authorities removed the new camp just a week after hundreds of migrants were left homeless in Paris . Police used tear gas to drive the inhabitants out and decried an "illegal occupation of public space."

While this Tuesday morning, the mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo denounced "a disproportionate and brutal use of force" during the evacuation of the Place de la République on Monday, as early as last week, after the evacuation of a migrant camp in Saint-Denis, his deputy Ian Brossat had sent a letter to the regional prefecture to propose two new temporary accommodation sites for refugees.

The City refuses to participate in the evacuation

This evacuation, the Paris town hall had "refused to participate", specifies Ian Brossat. Usually, the staff of the Directorate of Prevention, Security and Protection (the future municipal police) are present to support the shelter of migrants. "But this time around, we did not have enough guarantees from the Prefecture that the migrants' tents would not be thrown away, that there would be enough accommodation places open ..." elected Parisian. Many associations, moreover, were moved by the conditions in which the operation had taken place. That day, according to the regional prefecture's accounts, 3,000 people including 400 families were taken care of. But several hundred would have remained on the streets.

With the new health standards linked to Covid, accommodation centers must comply with a gauge of 14 m2 per person. "In fact, in the gymnasiums, the reception capacities have been reduced to around forty people accommodated", explains Ian Brossat. Hence the idea of ​​looking for larger spaces to set up temporary accommodation centers to comply with social distancing instructions and barrier gestures. The regional prefecture itself thus used a convention center in La Villette (19th century) to accommodate the homeless.

"All reception capacities should not be concentrated in the north-east"

"All reception capacities should not be concentrated in the north-east of Paris", however believes Ian Brossat who therefore proposed at the end last week that the hundreds of migrants who had not been sheltered after the evacuation of the Saint-Denis camp were accommodated either at the Porte de Versailles exhibition center (15th century) or at the Espace Champerret in the 17th century. Frédérique Hocquard (Editor's note: deputy in charge of tourism) was responsible for negotiating with Viparis, owner of the premises, the conditions for opening these sites.

For the moment, the Regional Prefecture has not responded to the City's proposal.
