(en) France, UCL AL #346 - Anti-fascism, Immigration Law: After the decision of the Constitutional Council, the fight continues (ca, de, fr, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Sun, 3 Mar 2024 07:56:06 +0200

The mythical "republican barrier" on the far right has long since exploded and the RN is proclaiming an "ideological victory". Beyond the symbolic aspect, this project would have very concretely constituted a serious deterioration of the rights and living conditions of hundreds of thousands of French people and foreigners in the country. ---- The law amended by the Senate adopted the principle of "national preference" of the RN. The inability to obtain access to social benefits would have plunged tens of thousands of already isolated families and individuals into poverty.

The questioning of land law and the prospect of dual nationals potentially being deprived of their nationality confirmed an inequality of rights between citizens depending on their origin.

This law led to the criminalization of undocumented immigrants and foreigners: offense of irregularity, expulsions for "disturbing public order" or "non-respect of the values of the Republic", imposition of an expulsion bond on non-European students. Humiliating measures exposing foreigners to the arbitrariness of justice and the police while effectively placing their supporters as accomplices to crimes.

More and more obstacles were placed in the way of visa applicants: systematization of OQTF for people rejected from asylum and ITF (Prohibition from French territory) for those found guilty of crimes, restriction of family reunification and justice made ever more hastily in the examination of asylum applications.

Continue the mobilization
The mobilization against this law was launched more than a year ago by collectives of undocumented immigrants, union sections of undocumented workers, associations and the Marche des Solidarités.

Since October, mobilization has increased. More than 400 organizations opposed to the project brought together tens of thousands of people across the country. The national demonstrations of January 14 and 21 further demonstrated the increase in mobilization against the project. Certain sectors, particularly education and health, have filed notices of strikes, which had already broken out last October on Olympic sites employing undocumented workers.

The decisions of the Constitutional Council are far from having buried the movement and new national mobilizations should continue from February 3.

Censorship far from sufficient
The censored measures cited were for formal defects rather than for their racist nature. Nothing says that these measures will not be proposed again to the Assembly in the months to come. Worse, several of the worst measures have been retained: loss of nationality, end of collegiality in the examination of asylum applications, non-issuance or renewal of the residence permit in the event of "non-compliance with the principles of the Republic" , systematization of OQTFs for rejected asylum seekers and ITFs for people found guilty of crimes.

We could not count on a reactionary institution to protect us from fascism. It is in our places of life, work, study and in the streets that a real anti-racist force will be able to oppose the destruction of land rights, asylum and the creation of undocumented immigrants. .

Papers for everyone, now, or no papers at all!
