French Interior Minister Manuel Valls says he stands by remarks calling for the country's Roma (Gypsies) to be expelled.
He said few Roma could ever integrate into French society and "the majority" should be sent "back to the borders".Link.

On the other hand, Arnaud Montebourg, colleague of Minister Valls

"A theory that such and such a person or such and such a people will never, ever be able to integrate just doesn't stand up, that's what they said about the Italians, that's what they said about the Spanish, it's what they said about the Portuguese, and what they said about the Arabs.
"Decreeing in advance that it is impossible seems to me excessive and is worthy of being corrected."

Where do you stand on such issues? (Not just the Roma but on all immigrant groups?)
