Under EU rules, asylum seekers may be uprooted a second time

By: Sylvain ROUSSEAU | Christopher MOORE | Fanny ALLARD | Sophie GUIGNON

An estimated 22,000 asylum seekers currently in France are in a situation of legal limbo.

That usually means Greece, Italy or Hungary - but can also be Germany or Sweden. Our team went to meet some of these asylum seekers in Paris, who now face the prospect of being uprooted again.
