Frances highest court has ruled that the countrys police can no longer arrest and detain illegal immigrants unless they are suspected of having committed a criminal offence.

Gee, we beat the French.
If the police can’t detain them..how the hell do you deport them? I guess the French want the rest of W.Africa to inhabit France.
