The debate on the bill promises to be heated in the majority.

The debate on the bill promises to be heated in the majority.

Will the majority "and right and left" withstand its first shocks? As we approach the presentation of the "asylum and immigration" bill - discussed mid-February at the Council of Ministers and then at the beginning of April in Parliament - a number of guidelines set by the Minister of the Interior arouse debate within the group of deputies The Republic in motion. Gerard Collomb, in charge of the Interior, has a "hard line" in the eyes of some, "a safe turn" even making the fight against illegal immigration a priority.

A few days after the adoption of the bill authorizing the retention of "dublines" - foreigners whose asylum application has already been examined in another member country of the European Union - and while Collomb authorized the census migrants in the reception centers, some tensions are felt within LREM. "The government would be wise to reconsider its position in a more humanitarian sense," indignant Joel Giraud, deputy of the Hautes-Alpes, where took place a "cordée solidaire" Sunday, in support of migrants. "On the subject of asylum, it will be necessary to find the line of crest, not to be cleavage, always keep in mind what Emmanuel Macron said in 2016: the refugees are heroes," recalls Pierre Person, MP from Paris.

"The government guidelines published in the press are only bases of work which the parliamentarians will quickly seize to think and debate"

Brigitte Bourguignon

Brigitte Bourguignon, chair of the social affairs committee, also stands out from the bill and hopes to amend it: "The government guidelines published in the press are only bases of work which parliamentarians will quickly seize to reflect and debate, by integrating at least a consultation with the associative sector. "

Olivier Véran, former PS deputy and general rapporteur of the Committee on Social Affairs, promises that he will be "attentive" to the fact that the human aspect is not neglected. "We will have to give ourselves the possibility of parliamentary debate. France can do more and better in terms of reception of asylum seekers, "said the elected, who shared his room, during his youth, with Lebanese refugees.

The pressure of the associations is felt on the parliamentarians. "The question of asylum is obviously a difficult subject," says Ludovic Mendes, MP Moselle. "Even if we do not all agree, it will be necessary to reach a consensus, to overcome the divisions to arrive at a balanced text." A goal shared by Hugues Renson, defector of the right, who denies any "hardening" of the migration policy.

"Some are modest, because it's easier to defend generosity. The reality is that too few asylum seekers are expelled. "

The risk of fracture of the majority is however taken very seriously in Beauvau. In recent weeks, Collomb has been receiving parliamentarians to "explain the issues" of the bill. "There is no fracture on the text, but on how to approach the theme," says a source close to the file. "Some are modest, because it's easier to defend generosity. The reality is that too few asylum seekers are expelled. It's not sexy but you have to have the courage to go all the way. "In charge of a parliamentary mission on the integration policy, the deputy of Val-d'Oise Aurélien Taché salutes the will of the government to shorten the procedural time for asylum seekers. "The" at the same time "in the matter of asylum is to put in place the returns for those who are rejected and guarantee genuine integration for others," he says. "The group will never explode, there will never be slingers, because the deputies are in absolute fidelity to Emmanuel Macron," wants to believe the MP Gabriel Attal.

During the LREM seminar, on January 15th, a workshop will be devoted to this subject. "Finally, the test of reality, courage, consistency," rejoices a close to the executive. The president of the group, Richard Ferrand, is optimistic about the ability of his troops to reach an agreement. "There will be a large majority on it," he promised.
