What is the right immigration policy for Europe?

The draft law on immigration and integration comes before the lower house of the French parliament from May 2 to 5. "Nicolas Sarkozy wants to return to a policy of 'chosen' immigration [abandoned in 1974] while restricting the rights of other immigrants," observes the journalist Franck Seuret. He believes the proposal "risks exacerbating existing social tensions without even achieving its objectives in terms of economic immigration ... Contrary to what one may be led to believe by Nicolas Sarkozy's eagerness to push this bill through - he is on his second law in less than three years - France today is in no way a country of massive immigration. It has even become the European state where demographic growth is least dependent on the arrival of foreigners. One year out from the presidential election, the interior minister is driven most of all by a desire to catch votes."
