France has proceeded to “30 thousand withdrawals or refusals of title since October 1, including 10 thousand in the last three months” according to a press release published this Thursday by the Minister of the Interior Gerald Darmanin.
He also welcomes the fact that “refusals of title have increased by more than 50% since October 1, 2020”.
Since September, the tenant of Beauvau has ordered the prefects “to strictly apply the law and therefore to withdraw and refuse residence permits to foreigners who disturb public order”.
According to him, Paris has withdrawn 699 residence permits since October, for reasons related to public order, including a majority of “aggravated violence, attempted murder” or “manslaughter”.
Regarding the first requests for residence permits, the prefectures opposed 20,079 refusals, including 1,299 based on questions of public order.
Finally, concerning the 8,031 refusals to renew residence permits, 772 are directly based on reasons of public order.
Last June, Gérald Darmanin wanted to speed up the expulsions by asking the prefects to bring up “the names of foreigners guilty of serious disturbances to public order to be expelled as a priority over the coming weeks”.
It should be noted that at the national level, approximately 120,000 asylum requests are registered each year, of which 20,000 are granted under the status of refugees, 20,000 are refused and whose applicants leave and finally 80,000 are refused and whose applicants remain on the territory.
