France: "We Want to Regain Control of Our Migration Policy"
Prime Minister Édouard Philippe, who serves under President Emmanuel Macron, said that the government would clear all the migrant camps in France before the end of the year, restrict access to medical care for migrants who are not authorized to be in France, and establish quotas for migrants with professional skills to offset labor shortages. He also said that the government would create 16,000 more housing spaces for migrants, along with three more detention centers for those not authorized to be in France.
Meanwhile, illegal immigration to and
through France continues unabated.
