    France makes it harder to become French - FRANCE - FRANCE 24

    Proficient in the language and allegiance to the country? How radical!!!!

    Ending birthright citizenship? Wow.

    Who's country? The native French or the new French?

    There are many who say there should be no difference.

    Obviously.

    Should this be a model for other countries to follow? If immigration reform was put on a referendum, do you think U.S. citizens would support it?

    You wanna be like the French?

    There's an airplane going there every few hours from most major airports.

    The French are incredibly xenophobic. Oh..and it's always been incredibly difficult to immigrate to France.

    I do. I certainly don't want us to be just like the French, but I think it's important to look at how other countries deal with big issues. And immigration certainly is a big issue.

    "Citizens" in several states have tried to deal with their own problems, much to the chagrin of the Obama administration.

    I'd love to know how many people would support something like this. My guess is it would be the majority of LEGAL citizens.

    It's funny how you guys cherry pick stuff from other cultures without examining the full picture. Ever been to France? Ever studied French history?

    Probably not. So you go off and say..if we were more xenophobic..like the French..we'd be better off.

    Ever wonder why France isn't a super power today? :lol:

    "You guys"? Talk about xenophobic. :cuckoo:

    No I have never been to France. But I am interested in their wine, art, and kissing as well.

    I've never been to Hazelton PA either, but I am interested in how they are trying to deal with immigration enforcement.

    See how that works? :eusa_whistle:
