While I believe that the French government should allow squalid camps of refugees hoping eventually to get to the U.K., I believe that they should enlist the help of the United Nations to assist them in the problem as the U.N. does in the case of other refugees around the world.
Yes, I believe that the French government is justified in allowing illegal and squalid camps, because they have to be able to put the Roma somewhere. Groups argue that each ethnicity should have a right to self-determination, but then they get upset when the Roma people decide that their self-determination is a squalid camp.
If the French government allows it then it's legal, Not illegal.
But in my opinion people shouldn't have to live in such conditions. Guaranteed minimum standards for housing and the right to such housing should be instituted the way they did in Finland. End homelessness and slum conditions by creating a minimum right to housing.
After providing guaranteed housing then I would fully support making it illegal to sleep in the streets or to have a squalid camp setup (camping of course should be legal just not the sort of mass, Messy camps they sometimes have).
I do not believe the French government is justified in allowing illegal and squalid camps. To me, this is a great disservice to the people who live in that country, both those in the camps and those that are not. However, it is the governments choice and other countries should not interfere with that.
I think the French Government realizes that regardless of how hard they crack down on these type of camps that they will just pop up somewhere else almost immediately, so overall I think the French Government has given up trying to enforce the law and allows them to exist which I think is wrong.
I do not believe that the French government is justified in allowing illegal and squalid camps. I think that the French government should not be engaged in such acts. The fact that camp is classified as "illegal" should be enough reason to argue against such a topic. I do not see how anybody can justify it.
