Hope for the Sans-Papiers

In the form of an ID card stating that their application for a work permit is under review. We no longer here much about l'immigration choisie, which was supposed to be Sarkozy's response to the problem of immigration. Apparently, the French population has choisi an immigration of its own: people to help with the housework, take care of the babies, tend the elderly, etc. Not what Sarkozy had in mind.
