Liberal Who Invited Migrants To Camp In Her Garden Can’t Get Them to Leave
A series of violent incidents has caused woman and family to fear for their safety
A Belgian woman who invited groups of migrants to camp out in her garden is now regretting her decision after she can't get them to leave following incidents of violence and aggression.
The Simon-Hody family allowed migrants to camp out in their garden for almost two years in the town of Spy.
Most of the migrants were headed towards the UK but used the garden as the last stop.
But after a series of incidents, the liberal family has decided they no longer want the migrants there, according to Sudinfo.
The makeshift camp has reportedly deteriorated so much that the family stopped all aid to the migrants, claiming that alcohol and violence made the camp become more dangerous.
One family member said, “we did not feel safe anymore.”
The camp was reported on by Breitbart in April, as neighbors of the family began expressing concern about the presence of the migrants, some going so far as demanding that the police remove them altogether.
Améline, the woman behind the camp, expressed positivity about the site at the time, arguing that while she respected the police, they would not be allowed on her private property where up to 100 migrants were staying — although she did note she felt “exhausted.”

Violence in migrant camps is not a new phenomenon, as many incidents are reported every year.
The infamous Calais migrant camp was well-known for violent activity, which included the murder of a 37-year-old Eritrean who was stabbed in the chest in July 2016 and was the eighth person to be killed in the camp that year.
A year later, despite French authorities cleared the Jungle, the violence remained, with Eritreans clashing with Ethiopians and leaving 16 people injured, one in serious condition.
Many of the migrants from the Calais Jungle either headed to Belgium or to Paris where makeshift migrant camps have sprouted in various areas in the French capital including in the 18th arrondissement where residents say they feel “abandoned” by authorities as crime and drugs surge.
