Elisabeth Borne tackles LR and calls for a European management of immigration


Highlights: Republican Party of France has proposed a new law on immigration. The new law would make it easier to deport illegal immigrants. The law would also allow for the creation of a commission to look into the issue. The bill is expected to be voted on by the end of the year. It would be the first of a series of bills to address the issue of immigration in France. The first of the bills was introduced in the House of Representatives last year. The second bill was passed in the Senate in March.

The prime minister responded in her own way to the Republicans' proposals on immigration, reiterating her wish not to cut herself off from the EU on this issue.

Responses to immigration must be built in a "European" framework, from which the Republicans seem to want to free themselves in their proposals on this theme, said Sunday Elisabeth Borne. "When you are a party of government, which has participated in the European construction, if you think that there are things to change, you do not put yourself on the sidelines of European rules, you act to move rules," said the prime minister in an interview with Radio J. "I am profoundly European, And I think that's where we need to build the right responses," she added.

The right has suggested to the government two very firm bills on immigration, to engage in a showdown with the executive which has launched consultations on this subject. The LR parliamentarians have already submitted a constitutional bill to the Assembly and the Senate. They notably provide for the possibility of a referendum on migration policy, the possibility of derogating from the primacy of the Treaties and European law, the reinstatement of the offence of illegal residence and the inclusion of "assimilation" in the Constitution.

On immigration, "there are difficulties that the French may experience who expect effective responses rather than slogans, constitutional reforms," adds the Prime Minister who defends the idea of a project "balanced" between expulsions and integration. "I asked Gérald Darmanin (...) to conduct consultations on the basis of proposals that may have been made by the government," she recalled, referring to "effective measures" and saying she was ready to discuss "with other parliamentary groups that share the concern and desire to improve the situation on these migration issues."
