A popular French suburb on the outskirts of Paris is struggling to cope with the strain of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants; begging the national government for help as countless more settle down each week.
According to the UK’s The Sun, the Parisian neighborhood of Seine-Saint-Denis has taken in over 300,000 immigrants from North Africa and the Middle East in just years; sparking new fears the region could become an “ethnic ghetto” just six miles from the Eiffel Tower.
“There are an estimated 135 different nationalities in Saint-Denis, most extremely poor, including an estimated 600,000 Muslims from North African or sub-Saharan African backgrounds, the Daily Mail reported,” writes the Sun. “The official legal population in Saint-Denis is estimated at 1.5 million.”
The statistics were released in an official report from President Macron’s national government, urging “better regulation” as migrants continue to enter the European Union through Italy, Greece, and other member nations.
“To identify urban phenomena of ghettoisation, to explain educational difficulties, to combat discrimination and to adapt the resources of the police and the judiciary to a specific population, the question of establishing so-called ethnic statistics is raised,” writes the report.

EUROPE YIELDS: NATO Secretary Praises ‘TRUMP’S LEADERSHIP,’ Says Europe to Pay More
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg praised President Trump’s “leadership” Wednesday, saying member nations are beginning to pay more into their common defense funds following the Commander-in-Chief’s tough talk.
The President was speaking with NATO nations Wednesday in Brussels to discuss common defense, terrorism, Russia, and the budget; calling on all countries to pay more to ease the burden on American taxpayers.
“We all agree that we have to do more. I agree with you that we have to do make sure that our allies are investing more. The good news is that allies have started to invest more in defense,” said Stoltenberg.
“It’s also because of your leadership, because of your carried message,” he added.
BREXIT CHAOS: British PM Warns Parliament to Prepare for ‘NO DEAL’ with EU
The British government was thrown into total chaos Monday morning following the abrupt resignation of two top-level officials to the Prime Minister, with Theresa May warning Parliament to prepare for a “no deal” Brexit from the European Union.
May’s warning came just hours after her top negotiator in Brexit talks abruptly stepped-down, prompting Foreign Minister Boris Johnson to quit the Cabinet moments later.
“May’s critics seized on the dual departures to chastise May’s handling of Brexit, and to suggest that her government is ill-suited to facilitate the complex disentanglement of two of the world’s major economies,” writes CNBC.
The Prime Minister spoke with Members of Parliament following the resignations, saying they should prepare for “multiple outcomes” in future talks with the EU, including a “no deal” Brexit.
The “no deal” option means the UK and EU may fail to reach a formal agreement when Britain is automatically removed from the union this March; prompting market chaos and severe uncertainty over immigration, trade, travel, and finances.
