France's Roma in Pictures

No this is not from South America, or some third world countries.  These are squatter settlements.  These squatter settlements typically lack running water, their kids are not enrolled in school and have a host of other problems. 

We call them Gypsies in typical American English, Gitanos in Spanish or Roma elsewhere. 

When Europe tries to go holier than thou about US immigration policies, we go to think, things are not so benevolent over their either. 

From around the web.  From across Europe
