And It’s Not an Amnesty

Before you get a concussion banging your head against a wall, look at what passes for tough action on immigration in France:

PARIS, Nov 29 (AFP) – Prime minister Dominique de Villepin on Tuesday announced plans to toughen entry criteria for the families of immigrants seeking to join their relatives in France.

Villepin told a press conference that it would be "more reasonable" for new arrivals to be asked to wait longer — two years instead of the current one — before bringing their families into the country.

Under such a heartless scheme, the youngest child in a family of twelve might only get to spend 70 of his next 72 years in France instead of 71 of his next 72.
