Senate of France is discussing controversial bill regarding refugees and migrants

The Senate of France is discussing a disputed bill regarding the issues of migrants and refugees.

In particular, the French senators supported the article of the bill providing for the deprivation of state medical care. This article provides for the abolition of free treatment for persons who do not have a residence permit in the country. Most members of the Senate of France made this initiative.

From now on, within the framework of the bill, persons deprived of a residence permit in the country will not be able to use the rights to free treatment provided by the state, with the exception of emergency cases.

The Senate of France has begun to discuss the bill on immigration at the beginning of the week.

It is expected that after the consideration of the bill in the Senate, it will again be sent to the National Assembly (the lower house of the French parliament). The bill is planned to be finalized and implemented until the end of the year.
