Sarkozy threatens immigrants who target police
PARIS – President Nicolas Sarkozy said Friday that he wants to revoke the French citizenship of immigrants who put the lives of police officers in danger as part of a "national war" on delinquency.
In a speech in Grenoble, the site of recent urban unrest, Sarkozy said that the current list of causes for revoking French nationality would be reevaluated and "rights and benefits" accorded to illegal immigrants would be reviewed.
Meanwhile, a video posted on the Internet showing riot police roughly rousting African immigrant squatters, including one visibly pregnant woman, from an encampment at a housing project prompted shocked reactions around the country.
The video shot by a member of a housing-rights organization shows police wearing leg protection pulling women, some with babies on their backs, and in one case dragging a woman across the ground with her infant trailing behind in the dirt.

The son of a foreign-born naturalised French citizen with whom he never had much of a relationship plans to make the lives of other foreign-born naturalised French citizens harder - hmmmmmmmm from my armchair, this looks like daddy issues to me, Sarko. Also, I think his plan at this point is just to deport everyone who might not vote for him.
