PARIS – The French government will propose the treatment of asylum applications, stricter and faster to tackle. Also, the government wants more efforts to rejected asylum seekers actually have to convert.
The number of asylum applications remains in France, in contrast to many other European countries, will steadily increase. In 2017 asked more than 100,000 people applied for asylum in France, an increase of 17 percent compared to 2016. More than a third of the applicants refugee status is recognised.
The French president Emmanuel Macron wants the influx to contain. His Interior minister, and Gérard Collomb, stresses that France, however, refugees must include, but are not all migrant workers can handle. The new law is, however, in the mixed political constituency of the liberal Macron controversial.
The proposed migration policy is according to human rights activists and vluchtelingenhelpers almost exclusively of measures to enable refugees to fend off. They threaten with protests.
