French PM introduced selective immigration legislation

On February 9, 2006, French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin presented a draft bill to the French cabinet introducing the concept of selective immigration. Under the bill, immigration by highly skilled workers and educated professionals would have been favored, but the poor and unskilled from outside the EU would no longer be allowed to bring family members to France unless they can prove they are able to provide for them financially outside of welfare benefits. New immigrants would have been required to sign a "welcome and integration" contract obligating them to learn French, respect French values and actively seek employment.
