About a week ago Vox Galliae published an article relating to an interview given by Richard Moyon to Nouvel Observateur. Moyon is a member of Education Without Borders (known as RESF), a left-wing organization that works on behalf of children, in this case immigrant children. A perfunctory search did not lead me to in depth information about the organization's beginnings.
Here are Moyon's comments as reported by Vox Galliae:
"I believe that the Interior Minister is using an evolving media strategy. He started out with zero legalizations two months ago, then 720 and now 6000. We have reason to hope that in a few weeks this number will be multiplied by 10...
"The number of applications received as a result of the June 13 circular is much greater than indicated, since Nicolas Sarkozy asked the prefects to impose restrictions so as to bring the total down. For example, families where the parents, or one of them, have residency rights, even if only for a few weeks, are excluded. Likewise, nationality can also be a criterion. Take for example the Rumanians in Haut-de-Seine. They are not entitled to submit an application because the prefect deems that Rumanians, as future citizens of Europe, will automatically be legalized eventually...The political meaning of this maneuver is not to startle Le Pen too much...
"The 'case by case' legalizations for tens or hundreds of thousands of people has no meaning. Italy and Spain have set an example. Immigration is a complex phenomenon and to rise up against it is useless."
The general secretary of the Front National, Louis Aliot, also made comments about the massive amnesty going on. This is a brief excerpt:
"As far as we're concerned we request that all professional humanitarians and do-gooders of all stripes kindly subsidize the costs incurred by the presence of these families on our soil, for one cannot possibly ask the French people to underwrite the consequences of an immigration policy that is suicidal for France and disastrous for the immigrants themselves."
