The French government is studying the possibility of facilitating the expulsion from the country of “any foreigner who has committed serious acts”, lifting the age restrictions in this regard, as confirmed by the Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin.

“We want to allow the expulsion of any foreigner found guilty of a serious act by the courts, regardless of their condition of presence in the national territory”, he made it known in an interview with ‘Le Monde’.

The minister recalled that now a foreign citizen cannot be deported if he meets certain conditions, such as having arrived on French territory before the age of 13, a limitation that Darmanin wants to eliminate.

The Government intends to include this provision in the future orientation and programming law of the Ministry of the Interior (Lopmi), which will be presented at the end of the summer.
