    Contested French immigration bill passes

    By NATHALIE SCHUCK, Associated Press Writer
    Tue Oct 23, 6:20 PM ET

    PARIS - French lawmakers adopted a hotly contested bill on Tuesday that would institute language exams and potential DNA testing for prospective immigrants, making it more difficult for families to join loved ones in France.

    The DNA amendment, the most controversial aspect of the legislation, is meant to ensure that claims of family ties are true. It was added as a way to ensure that visa-seekers were not using fraudulent papers, common in some African countries.

    While the expensive test is optional, critics fear it would be viewed as mandatory by those hoping to join family members in France.

    The opposition Socialist Party has said it would take the issue before the Constitutional Council, which ensures that all laws conform with the constitution, in the hopes of getting the DNA amendment dumped. The move delays the bill's formal passage into law.

    "This law is aimed at institutionalizing xenophobia," said Communist Party lawmaker Patrick Braouezec.

    France's National Ethics Committee, a consultative body, has also said it has serious reservations about the DNA amendment for fear it could erode individual freedoms.

    In a bid to appease critics, the DNA amendment was watered down to an 18-month experiment in several countries, with a genetic comparison only being made between a child seeking to join a mother already in France.

    The legislation is a step toward fulfilling Conservative French President Nicolas Sarkozy's goal of increasing the proportion of skilled immigrants in France from 7 percent to 50 percent and generally tailoring the profile of the immigrant community.

    In September, Sarkozy proposed immigration quotas by regions of the world and by occupation.

    "I want us to be able to establish each year, after a debate in parliament, a quota with a ceiling for the number of foreigners we accept on our territory," he said at the time.

    Immigration reform was a central theme of Sarkozy's presidential campaign.

    "You are reimbursing your debt to the extreme right," Greens Party lawmaker Noel Mamere said Tuesday ahead of the vote, a reference to the far-right party which voted massively for Sarkozy at the expense of its own candidate, Jean-Marie Le Pen.

    The rest of the bill requires that prospective immigrants take a language test and an exam on fundamental French values. It also sets a minimum income level for the relative in France to ensure the person arriving has enough financial support.

    Twenty-one deputies of Sarkozy's Union for a Popular Movement abstained in the 282-235 vote in the lower house, the National Assembly, and four voted against the bill. The bill passed in the Senate 185-136.

    I actually agree with you there.

    if you think im some pomp pomp cheerleader for the bush admin, youre very mistaken.

    Im fed up with republican party, a.k.a. phony conservatives of the last 6 years.

    And wish they would go back to their roots, small government, fiscal conservatives, and fighting illegal immigration, and pro family, pro military.

    Are you serious, martin?


    Are you saying that you would rather government forget you on health, citizenship and other issues? Are you saying that as the rich rip your ass off and keep you poor, ignorant and hopefully hungry that they are correct? Are you trying to say that all white men and women should be deported as they all arived here illegally? Which "family" are you wanting to "pro" as in promote? Your family, my family or the family you have in your silly head? Is your ideology of "pro military" one that can protect your cowardly ass from aggression?

    Good God, I love the chickenhawks. They are so transparent.

    I feared as much.


    From your writings I can assume I should fear you as well.

    I am not afraid, Semper Fi.

    Not afraid of a teenager however many miles away that knows very little about you other than what you post here? Well, I doubt anyone is. That makes you something special, I suppose.
