The environmentalist deputy for Yvelines Benjamin Lucas, at the National Assembly, in Paris, December 11, 2023.

Green MP Benjamin Lucas deplores the truth that the federal government didn’t withdraw the immigration invoice following the adoption of the prior rejection movement within the National Assembly that it had introduced. The elected official from Yvelines thinks that there can’t be a majority on this textual content within the Hemicycle even when the joint committee have been to succeed in a compromise on Monday, December 18.

You handed a rejection movement which led to discussions between The Republicans (LR) and the federal government. Isn’t that the other of the specified impact?

I proceed to totally settle for this rejection movement: we’ve got averted two weeks of a debate which might have been swallowed up by an environment of racism which already permeates the general public debate. We know what that may have been like with eighty-eight RN deputies and an inside minister who has misplaced all compass. I imagine that we pressured Macronie to do in just a few hours what they’d deliberate to do in just a few days. The political strategy of hardening the textual content, of headlong flight, was underway. With fifteen days of examination, the minister would have had extra time to barter with The Republicans. In the Hemicycle on Monday [11 décembre]he mentioned he was prepared to debate blade [aide médicale d’Etat], on the crime of unlawful residence, two alerts addressed to the radicalized proper. We have allowed the phantasm of “at the same time” to be exploded, which reveals an absence of the federal government’s humanist compass.

However, within the regulation committee, the presidential majority started to unravel the Senate model. Couldn’t you have got tried to exert your affect within the Hemicycle to acquire extra?

The regulation committee’s textual content is even much less balanced than the federal government’s preliminary model: it consists of quotas, provisions limiting household reunification and at last, on professions in rigidity, it abdicates fully. I mentioned “it’s better than nothing, but almost nothing”, as a result of in the long run, it’s only a matter of some regularizations, in just a few areas and in just a few professions in rigidity. And it stays an experiment. The similar night [du vote de la motion], [Gérald] Darmanin had deliberate to go to CNews with Pascal Praud, an indication of his determination to provide pledges to the radicalized proper.

Did you not condemn the regularization measure in professions in rigidity that the associations have been asking for?

I invite the associations to belief us with parliamentary evaluation, as we belief them with all the things that considerations substance on these topics. Article 4 bis of regularization of professions in scarcity would have been skipped. If the federal government had softened its textual content, the place would it not discover its majority? The Minister of the Interior has by no means sought a majority with the left.
