France Interior Minister, Nicolas Sarkozy, said that 13,000 undocumented immigrants have been expelled in eight months, and he is now committed to sending 10,000 more illegal foreigners home before the end of 2005, reported the Moroccan daily Assabah on Tuesday.
He urged the police authorities to work hard to meet this goal.
In a meeting with police officials, Sarkozy said that France managed to expel 12,842 by the end of August, adding that so far, we have succeeded in achieving 56% of the hoped-for total of 23,000,
In 2004, France expelled 18,000 foreigners.
Sarkozy has refused all the attempts made by different humanitarian associations and communities, explaining that the European Court of Human Rights does not allow people to live wherever they like, added the Moroccan daily.
Some countries refuse to cooperate with France in this respect, namely Belarusia, Cameroon, Egypt, Georgia, Guinea, Pakistan, Serbia and Sudan, stated the same source.
France, in return, will limit the quotas of visas given to citizens coming from these countries and wishing to go to France, warned Sarkozy.
The immigration census in France shows that some 200,000 undocumented immigrants are living in the country, coming especially from Africa, North Africa and China.
France Interior Minister, Nicolas Sarkozy,
Nicky gets it.
Sacre mon bleu, the Froggies finally got something right!
Gosh, send this to President Bush.....
France does not like illegal immigration.
Truth be told, France does not like immigration period, but a certain amount of it is tolerable, so long as the law is followed.
Illegal immigration from problem countries, which immigrants end up in the banlieux rouges and cause criminality problems: this is unwelcome, and this is tracked and the illegals, exported.
At the current rate, France's illegal population will be reduced by 5% a year. This is a good start.
We'll welcome them with open arms, just wait and see!
Finally, someone with common sense.
I hope the French will stop the Muslim immigration and reverse the trend. There are too many already inside France
France is TOAST. 30% of live births are into the cult of death. 15 years from now Notre Dame will either be burned or some raghead will be doing the call for prayers from the steeple.
We can't afford to let france fall even if they don't fight for themselves. The last thing we need is a nuclear capable islamic europe.
For once in my life let me say it: VIVE LA FRANCE!!!!!!!!
And 70% of live births are not.
Also, you are incorrect about the 30% figure.
It is difficult to know for sure such figures in France, because the government does not track citizens by ethnicity. All such numbers are therefore an estimate.
However, it would be better to say that 30% of births in France are to parents at least one of whom is of North African origin. Being of North African origin does not equate to being Muslim, nor being a practicing Muslim. There is a great deal of mixing in France, and the children of mixed couples are almost invariably secular.
The grandchildren of North Africans born in France are also largely secular.
If one speaks of births to parents, both of whom are born in France and both of whom are practicing Muslims, the numbers are probably below 10%. Islam has not proved more durable in France than Christianity or Judaism at resisting the secularizing trend.
Wow... my respect for the frogs just went up a notch.
Outdone by the cheese eating surrender monkeys? We should be ashamed, ashamed I tell you!
Funny the documents were on the site. The 10 percent you quote is ridiculous. I believe 10 percent of the population is rag and they are reproducing like rabbits.
To which site do you refer?
