We reject the CESEDA bill that the government is preparing on immigration!
The new reform of the Code for the entry and stay of foreigners and the right to asylum (CESEDA) leads to a radical negation of fundamental human rights. It even more radically restricts the right to residence for families, spouses, children, and all those who build their lives in France. It ratifies the virtual disappearance of this “integration” tool that was the resident card. It attacks the stay of foreign patients.
If this project is adopted, it will not be good to love each other between French and foreigners, to want to live with his family or to have children. For them, the endless multiplication of conditions will make the hope of regularization very futile.
The project is deliberately part of a utilitarian perspective. The government is showing its willingness to go and plunder the capacities and talents in the world. Only foreigners perceived as profitable for the French economy will be “acceptable”. As for the others, neither their personal situation nor their family situation will henceforth give them rights, to the point that regularizations will become almost impossible. This project creates a new category of foreign workers whose length of stay is limited to the goodwill of their boss. In addition, the abolition of the right to the issue of a residence permit, for foreigners who have been present in France for at least ten years, condemns them to perpetual irregularity. The project will also select the entry of foreign students much more.
As for foreigners in a legal situation, the right to live with the family becomes an achievement: the government plans to tighten the conditions for family reunification (resources, housing, opinion of the mayor on the “integration” of the family). He casts suspicion on foreign fathers of French children, who will have to prove their paternity.
To read the new government plan on immigration, to hope to obtain and keep their residence permit, foreigners must cumulatively be “well integrated”, well seen by the mayor of their municipality, in good agreement with their spouse, appreciated by their boss , with a good salary and ample accommodation.
Knowing that a reform of the right to asylum should greatly reduce the conditions for granting refugee status, it is all the rights of foreigners that is in danger. It is the responsibility of each of us to react. By stigmatizing foreigners, the government tries to pit us against each other and sells away fundamental freedoms.
We therefore call on us to mobilize against the CESEDA reform which, if adopted, would make foreigners in France, regular or irregular, a second-class population, deprived of rights, precarious and delivered hand and foot linked to the arbitrariness of the employers. , administration and power.
