Motion to kill immigration bill: Which of the five Renaissance MPs is absent from the vote?

Five of them were absent during this crucial majority vote. Several Renaissance MPs were not present in the National Assembly this Monday when the vote was held on the motion to reject the immigration bill defended by Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin.

The purpose of the text was, in particular, to facilitate the expulsion of foreigners considered dangerous, on the one hand, and, on the other hand, to allow the legalization of unregistered workers in certain strenuous professions, on the other hand. The National Assembly, by 270 votes to 265, adopted a motion to provisionally reject the bill with the votes of the Left, the Republicans and the National Rally.

Within the Revival group, which emerged thanks to the presidential majority, 165 out of 170 deputies tried to resist the proposal to reject it. Five more were absent: deputies Jean-Philippe Hardouin (3rd constituency of Charente-Maritime), Anne Geneté (11th constituency of French living abroad), Monique Iborra (6th constituency of Haute-Garonne), Amelia Lacrafi ( 10th constituency) for French people living abroad) and Michel Lauzana (1st constituency of Lot-et-Garonne).

“I would vote against this proposal”

“I was in Toulouse with the President of the Republic,” I visited Toulouse to take stock of France’s two-year investment plan until 2030, Monique Iborra explained to La Dépêche du Midi. “I was the only representative of the Renaissance present. I should have been there. Obviously, I would vote against this motion to dismiss because this immigration bill is important, a lot of people have been waiting for it,” she continued.

Elected Renaissance, a former socialist, was, however, very critical of the unexpected alliance of the LFI and the RN, the Socialist Party and the LR. “I did not expect anything from the LFI and the National Rally, who only think about overthrowing the government, but I am very angry with the LPR and PS deputies. They made a serious mistake,” thundered the elected official from Haute-Garonne.

“The text of the law was balanced, both firm and integration-oriented. Right and left could find their account there. They didn’t get it right, just the pose,” she continued. The four other absent lawmakers had not yet spoken on the issue Monday night.
