How the USA could become France in a heartbeat

Here is an excerpt from an interview with Don Lemon on CNN. The speaker is Robert Baer, a former CIA operative:

"You have a very large disaffected North African community. They are French citizens now...but they've been excluded from French society. I went to school in France...I worked there and they are really totally excluded.  And it keeps getting worse since the attacks in Paris because [the police] are using profiling and they are stopping people who look like Arabs on trains and buses, checking their IDs, which we don't even do in this country [USA]. The French have been very aggressive...radicalization of people of North African origin is actually picking up rather than lessening."
