Do you agree with France's approach to its ethnic minorities?

From banning the burqa, the full-face covering that some Muslim women wear, to deporting Romas who live in illegal camps, France's foreign policy moves recently have prioritised conformity over tolerance. Violence has flared again and again when police clash with suburban youths, many of them immigrants from North Africa who are poor and jobless in a state they say discriminates heavily against them. Do you think that France's recent moves are justified, in that its aim is to maintain the state's French character and clamp down on illegal immigration and violence? Or do you think the approach should be to integrate newcomers economically, with work and social programmes?
