France approves controversial immigration bill per BBC News who do not approve
The BBC report http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-43860880 on France's new immigration bill clearly show their opposition to it, the reporting really does accentuate the negative.
At the end of the report is the BBC's standard wording that appears on any article about immigration:
'A note on terminology: The BBC uses the term migrant to refer to all people on the move who have yet to complete the legal process of claiming asylum. This group includes people fleeing war-torn countries such as Syria, who are likely to be granted refugee status, as well as people who are seeking jobs and better lives, who governments are likely to rule are economic migrants.'
It would be interesting if the BBC gave context to their contextual note by telling us what proportion of the current flood of immigrants fall into each of those two categories, but that sort of information would not help the supporters of unlimited immigration.
