Migration pressure

“We are working with the prefect of the Alpes-Maritimes

(Bernard Gonzalez, Ed)

on long-term solutions.

However, the situation is too urgent and requires strong, immediate and concerted action”

, further believes the mayor of Nice who underlines that Nice and its metropolis are

“particularly impacted by this migratory pressure due to their geographical position and their proximity to the Italian border


Beyond the question of real estate or logistics, there is the question of human resources, according to a source familiar with the matter.

It takes 80 officials to take care of 40 people held in a CRA, according to this source.

This proposal from the mayor of Nice comes as the examination in the Senate of the immigration bill by Gérald Darmanin, criticized on the right as on the left, has been postponed.
