Tough Immigration Policy… From France?

February 4, 2010

Sarkozy’n’ee-um are getting serious about this:

The French government has refused to grant citizenship to a foreign national on the grounds that he forced his wife to wear the full Islamic veil.

The man, whose current nationality was not given, needed citizenship to settle in the country with his French wife.

…”It became apparent during the regulation investigation and the prior interview that this person was compelling his wife to wear the all-covering veil, depriving her of the freedom to come and go with her face uncovered, and rejected the principles of secularism and equality between men and women,” he said.

Sounds like a personal problem.  Zing.

But seriously folks.  If there were to be a Western country that banned articles of clothing, you’d expect France, where All-State is a national policy rather than a car insurer, to be near the top of the most-likely-to-do-that, right?  (You’d just expect it to be crosses or W.W.J.D. bracelets or out-of-style clothing or something.)  This is an interesting move, though, because it’s a stand on immigration happening right there on the Incontinent—something that happens very rarely.  Maybe it’s wrong for the Feds to tell you what you can and can’t wear, but they sure as hell don’t have to let you live in their country if you ain’t from around there.  The green card approach to wrangling with Islamism is an underrated one—something we might try right here in the U.S. to deal with low-wage unemployment, perhaps?

It’s good to see people like the Frogs realize that they don’t have to sit back and take an Islamic kick in the teeth every five minutes.  It’d would have done Britain and the Netherlands to adopt some similar policies a while back.  It’s probably already too late for them, but it’s not for the rest of us (and by us, I mean them)!  Stockholm doesn’t have to be Waziristan!  Houston doesn’t have to be Guadalajara!  Perhaps we can!
