France is now implementing its new policy towards the refugees trying to cross the border from Italy: half have been returned to Italy, and the other half are in custody.

Half of the 2500 Immigrants in France Returned to Italy
(AGI) Paris – Half of the 2500 immigrants from Lampedusa arrested in France have been returned to Italy, while the rest have been detained by the French authorities. The news was reported by border police quoted by the daily newspaper, Le Figaro. “We will investigate in detail every individual situation, and not everyone will pass the test,” explained the same source, commenting on a new circular letter from the Interior Ministry establishing rigorous conditions for using in France the temporary residency permits issued by other Schengen area countries.
“Get back to where you once belonged…”
