French parliament passed immigration legislation
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On June 16, 2006, the upper chamber of the French parliament approved immigration legislation, following the French National Assembly which had voted overwhelmingly to approve the measure the previous month. The bill made it more difficult for unskilled workers to gain access to the country by adding a "skills and talents" requirement to obtain a residency permit. The measure also eliminated the right of illegal immigrants to automatically stay in France after living there for 10 years and mandated that migrants must learn French and sign a contract promising to respect the French way of life.
