Migrants have been setting up camps along the city's canals, a phenomenon which has raised public concerns over safety and public hygiene. Last month, French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb ordered the immediate evacuation of migrant camps in Paris and the Parisian Ile-de-France region.

The European Union has faced an increased inflow of migrants, fleeing hunger and conflict in their home countries, predominantely — from the Middle East and Africa. France has been attempting to clear out unauthorized migrant camps on its territory.
