Hmm whoever could this law be aimed at? Needless to say this is another one in the eye for the liberals.Members of the lower house of parliament, the National Assembly, passed the measure after a first reading by 294 votes to 239..
The law would strip French nationality from foreigners who had acquired citizenship and who were convicted of violent crimes against police and other officials. This punishment currently applies only to terrorism charges.
It would also allow police to deport foreign nationals, including those from other European Union countries, for repeated acts of
- aggressive begging or
- for illegally occupying land..
The bill must be examined by a parliamentary commission before it can be voted into law.
