Sarkozy for giving the immigrants voting rights

New/old French interior minister Nicolas Sarkozy presented, in general terms, the policies of his ministry for the future period. He said a vote on the municipal level should be granted to legal immigrants and called for the general increase in legal protection of these people. Simultanouesly he called for a serious clampdown and expulsion of illegal immigrants.

Again, it seems that liberalization of citizenship requirements for immigrants does not go hand it hand with liberalization of the border regime, quite on the contrary.
