And not to forget all those „No-go areas“. There are such areas in Europe too and there are also homeless people, but the amount is much less compared to the US.
In southern France those folks you speak about are not refugees from the Middle East (only a few), but that are the so called „Maghrebs“. They came decades ago from North Africa, mainly Morocco and Algeria. It is said that Marseille is the Capital of the Magreb. 😂
btw, never mention the French/Algerian war in France. Ou la la, mon dieu! 😂
