(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #241 - Migrants' Rights: "Give us the resident card!" (fr, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 13 Sep 2014 16:15:05 +0300

The residence card, fruit struggles decades has continued to be questioned. Despite the return of the left in power, there was no real break with the policies carried out by previous governments. A campaign is launched for the return of the card room. ---- In 1984, created the residency card. Over a period of ten years, then it is supposed to be delivered to many foreigners. Its creation followed the substantial mobilization of the first and second generations in the early Mitterrand. Renewable automatically, then this card is the hope of a substantial security for people previously subjected to the constant threat of non-renewal of temporary residence permits for a period of one year, this being subject to the whims of the administration. ---- The conditions of issue of the card have not ceased to be trimmed since its inception. It is no longer accessible to people who have been legally resident for five years or more, and the request leads to an examination of the integration, including the level of French, which leaves its issue between by agents with known decision-making power and misuse they make. Above all, it is no longer seen as the way to a peaceful stay in France, but as a reward (exceptional) to an integration... accomplished against all odds: the arbitrary prefectural police checks repeatedly, barriers to getting a job for those who are looking for work, the challenge to lead his family.

Policy declining PS

PS, in the presidential elections once again renewed his promises on immigration: voting rights for foreigners and redesign Ceseda. We now know that many promises were drunken, and legislative reform in development is located in a different logic: that the enhanced control room and an injunction increasingly violent integration. Rather than a return to the residence card, a proposal is made under multiyear stay, which mostly will replace it without its benefits. In a left to the discretion of the prefecture (between two and four years) duration, as in no way constitutes an advance over residence permits of a year, since may, as appropriate, be removed or not renewed at any time. In fact advanced rights, the PS is engaged in grooming the Ceseda operation... and the reform of asylum accompanying, if not final, is yet down considerably rights of refugees. In both of these reforms, there is no mention of respect for persons, rights or protection, but "efficiency" of the workflow.

Nothing new under the sun! The leftist government reaffirms its liberal and utilitarian vision of immigration. A campaign is launched on May by forty associations and unions to demand a return to the residence card as the primary residence permit. The campaign for the inconspicuous yet outside associative circles, deserves support and relayed. As for us, beyond the struggle for rights of persons considered by the law as a mere work force (or if not a bunch of freeloaders), it behooves us to remind our libertarian positions: freedom of movement and Installation for everyone, equal rights between French and foreign, stop checks and evictions.
