(en) France, Alternative Libertair November 2012 (#222) - You said immigration change? (fr) [machine translation]
Wed, 21 Nov 2012 10:27:39 +0200
Until his election, Francois Hollande has pledged to pursue an immigration policy that
breaks with the Sarkozy government ... Six months after the election, the first report is
final. ---- Silence on campaign promises headlights PS is deafening: a hypothetical
redesign of Ceseda and a circular inter alia on the regularization of undocumented
migrants were announced. We expect to see the color. Moreover, the continued immigration
from the cup of the Ministry of Interior illustrates a conception of immigration as a
problem of security and subjected to repressive treatment. ---- A deafening silence ----
The right of foreigners to vote was one of the spearheads of the PS during the campaign.
With all that back door Libertarian Alternative on electioneering, this reform seems
defensible claim on behalf of equal rights between French and foreign people. We can not
today the hypocrisy with which the subject, Manuel Valls says she is "not a priority" is
avoided despite the candidate's campaign commitments Holland.
In contrast, naturalization, which Manuel Valls promised in July to devote a circular has
been some changes with the circular of 16 October that promise ... next circular.
Meanwhile, the Ministry merely advise prefects easing the evaluation of applications. They
are always thousands of foreigners who are thus impose a condition of integration archaic,
under penalty of being denied French citizenship, and are kept in deplorable dependence on
the goodwill of the administration to see their right to stay renewed.
If we talk about other measures, we find that the change is for the worse. The detention
of families with children remains, although the European Union has condemned the French
government about it at the beginning of the year. The tool? The arrest, with increased
surveillance, according to a logic of confinement and criminalization of illegal stay.
No improvements to
And while we're at it, talk about Roma! After evictions publicized September, several
camps have been evacuated amid general indifference during the month of October. The
Department intended to mark a break and spoke to act with "humanity", the circular issued
on August 22 prefects nevertheless gives discretion to decide the evacuation camps, in
defiance of the education of children and the actual situation of adults. And evictions
are linked to a higher rate than led by Sarkozy and his henchmen in 2011.
In all these areas of immigration policy, the government's tactic is clear: sleep
associations promising dialogue and discussion, then to maintain laws and regulations
repressive and xenophobic. Poverty and illegal are not crimes, yet are treated as such by
a government that maintains head under water already destitute population generally.
We can expect a result to the action of Manuel Valls and government Ayraut. But we're
under no illusions, the rights of aliens have always been torn, face to the right as to
the left, mobilization supported by the social movement.
To us therefore keep the claims that were already ours before the arrival of PS in power,
as the residence of ten years for all. In short, immigration, the only change that we will
emerge from the struggles we build!
