PARIS, Nov. 28 (Reuters / EP) –

The French Police started Thursday to evict between 200 and 300 migrants residing in a camp in the area near the Aubervilliers Gate, in northern Paris.

Agents have indicated in a statement that migrants will be transferred to temporarily house them in shelters, pavilions or shelters within the framework of a series of measures put in place to deal with illegal immigration.

Since the dismantling of the migrant and refugee camp installed on the outskirts of the French town of Calais, also known as the 'jungle', many refugees have moved to Paris, the capital of France.

The authorities have recently dismantled several illegal camps, an issue that has only led to the formation of new camps in other areas of the country.

In early November, French President Emmanuel Macron pledged to evict immigrants from various camps, impose quotas on economic immigrants based on the needs of the French labor market and limit the access of new asylum seekers to social security .
