A government statement issued after a Cabinet sitting held yesterday says: “In view of the repeated political crimes committed on our territory by foreigners, the government has drawn up a series of regulations in order to guard more effectively against the intolerable abuse, which is thus made of French hospitality.”
The statement has been issued, it is understood, because of the recent anti-Fascist crimes in France. The decision is, however, likely to have affect also on the large number of Jews in France, who are not citizens, particularly in view of the agitation carried on by a part of the press at the time of the Schwartzbard affair. The total foreign population of France is stated to be 2,800,000, and it is said that 5,000 or 6,000 are expelled from the country every year.
