Debate: Paris plans to abolish birthright citizenship in Mayotte

44

Le Figaro points to the difficulties of amending the constitution and suggests going one step further:

“The procedure is known to be long and fraught with obstacles. The debate promises to be stormy, with a relative and divided majority. The left is already standing up against what it interprets as a violation of the principle of territorial equality. As for the right, it should logically demand that the abolition of the jus soli principle be extended to the entire country. In Mayotte, like anywhere else in France, why should the granting of citizenship be obligatory?”
