French Minister of the family suggests possible ban on fully-veiled new immigrants

The French government is planning to require new immigrants to sign a contract recognizing that the face-veil is banned in France. “Equality between men and women is a fundamental principle of French society,” Families Minister Nadine Morano told French Radio, reported Agence France-Presse (AFP). “The same applies to the full veil.”

At present, newcomers are stipulated to sign the contract stating that polygamy and forced marriages are not allowed in France.”I also want to add that female genital mutilation is strictly prohibited,” said Morano.
