Now this is what ALL Western countries should be setting as their minimum benchmark!

Vivé Mr Sarkosy!

ANdy

ETA: Mr Sarkosy is not French BTW, he's the son of a Hungarian immigrant, maybe that's why he 'gets it'?

…"Supporters of Sarkozy within France emphasise his charisma, political innovation and willingness to "make a dramatic break" amidst mounting disaffection against "politics as usual," opponents see him as an authoritarian populist fishing for the radical voters of the Front National through pushing hardline "law and order" policies and anti-immigration legislation; in addition, he has been criticized for his departures from traditional French social values in favour of American-style economic reform.:…

PROPOSED NEW RULES

Only the qualified get "skills and talents" residency permit

Foreigners only allowed in to work, not live off benefits

Foreign spouses to wait longer for residence cards

Migrants must agree to learn French

Migrants must sign 'contract' respecting French way of life

Scraps law on workers getting citizenship after 10 years




French immigration bill approved

Nicolas Sarkozy said France needed immigrants who brought new skills
The upper house of the French parliament has passed a tough new immigration bill, weeks after it was adopted by the lower chamber.
The bill makes it harder for unskilled migrants to settle in France and abolishes the rights of illegal immigrants to remain after 10 years.

Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy, who drafted the bill, says it will bring France into line with other countries.

Critics say it is racist and accuse Mr Sarkozy of pandering to the far-right.

Mr Sarkozy, who is seen as a potential contender in presidential elections next year, says France must be in control of immigration, rather than a passive recipient.

'System failing'

The proposed law also requires immigrants from outside the European Union to sign a contract agreeing to learn French and to respect the principles of the French Republic, and makes it more difficult for them to bring their families over to join them.

Mr Sarkozy has argued that riots by youths in immigrant suburbs across France last November showed the system of immigration and integration was failing.

He says France, like a number of other Western countries, needs to choose the immigrants it needs.

Most immigrants living in France come from its former African colonies.

The proposed law has been criticised by many in the region, including President Abdoulaye Wade of Senegal.

I can own a genuine Colt Commando in France, and a Browning Hi-Power to keep it company!  The Dordogne sounds good to me.

Yup and even sound suppressors. My family come from Dordogne. Last year we have sold to some of your compatriots a XVIth century house with a bread furnace and pigeonholes. Only the British could afford this.

A small step in the right direction.  Let's hope the rest of Western Civilization, including the USA (see the thread about Islamic women wanting accomodations in gyms and swimming pools) takes notice and follows suit.

Now all they have to do is eliminate immigration from non-European  countries and they will be doing great.
