Belgian City’s Migrant Population Nearly Doubles

The number of migrants currently residing in Ghent, Belgium, has nearly doubled in just four years, according to local media.

More than 3,000 ‘refugees’ are spread out across the city’s asylum facilities, which are full to overflowing.

“Most newcomers are Afghans, Syrians and Somalis,” SCEPTR reports. “Together, these three nationalities make up around 60 percent of all refugees. More than 75 percent of the refugees are men.”

Despite the increasing flow of migrants, Ghent officials claim the city can handle the influx and that there is little opposition from citizens.

“Ghent can handle this,” said local official Rudy Coddens. “There is great solidarity between the various cultural communities. There is also support from the population.”
