About 50 MPs will be received at the Ministry of the Interior for training on immigration issues, a week before the start of the debate by Emmanuel Macron.


The debate on immigration announced by Emmanuel Macron does not open until next Monday, but the majority is put in order of battle from this beginning of week. The Élysée and Matignon want to demine, leave nothing to chance and prepare the deputies on this difficult and very sensitive, in what looks like a real accelerated course, according to information from Europe 1.

It starts on Monday afternoon: a group of about 50 MPs who specialized in immigration this fall will be received at the Ministry of the Interior, Place Beauvau, for a brief on asylum issues, family reunification and deportation. This accelerated training is for elected officials who sometimes know very little about the subject of immigration.

Elected representatives received by Édouard Philippe

On Tuesday evening, there will be an exceptional group meeting in the presence of Christophe Castaner and Amélie de Montchalin, Secretary of State and specialist migrants dublines. The party will not be left with an executive office of The Republic in March devoted to the subject of immigration, Monday evening.

"We must avoid rumors and approximations", it is said in the entourage of the Prime Minister. Matignon is also preparing a summary document given to all MPs with indisputable figures. Édouard Philippe himself will receive some elected officials to prepare the guidelines and ensure that everyone arrives with the same diagnosis next Monday. For this sequence, the executive wants at all costs to avoid controversy in the debate of substance wanted by Emmanuel Macron.
