‘No one knows who they are’: French fast food worker’s family faces deportation
A French fast-food worker’s father is suing the city of Paris for allegedly not providing him with enough food for his family.
The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in the city’s Supreme Court, also names the city and several police officers, accusing them of violating his rights to due process and equal protection under the law.
“The lawsuit is the culmination of years of effort to help me be able to care for my family, to provide for my children, to be able afford to keep my business open and be able take care of my kids,” his father, Jean-Louis, said in a statement Tuesday.
He said that after months of waiting for a response from Paris, he has received a phone call from the city saying that “there are still many weeks left in the year to complete the petition and file a request for a stay.” “
If they fail to honor their word, the city will go down in history as the country that has the most discriminatory immigration policies in the world.”
He said that after months of waiting for a response from Paris, he has received a phone call from the city saying that “there are still many weeks left in the year to complete the petition and file a request for a stay.”
But, he said, “I have no other option than to accept this lawsuit, because my family is in imminent danger.”
The lawsuit seeks damages for the violation of his rights as an immigrant and the violation for which he has been denied due process.
It seeks $1.1 million in damages, plus punitive damages and attorney fees.
It also asks for an injunction prohibiting the city from further denying his rights.
Paris has been under fire for its immigration policies.
The city has been a target of anti-immigration demonstrations and a series of deadly terrorist attacks in recent years.
The Paris Police Department has also been accused of racial profiling in recent months.
A recent report from the U.S. Department of Justice found that the city was among the worst in the country in which to detain immigrants who were in the U: they had more than 4,000 immigrants detained in 2014.
The report also said the city failed to provide adequate housing for the immigrants who came here, including for the children of immigrants.
Last year, a lawsuit was filed by a woman who said she was denied her citizenship by the city for the family of an illegal immigrant, alleging that the family was deported twice and that she was the victim of police brutality.
“We were given a list of the people who are on the list,” said the woman, who spoke on condition of anonymity because she was fearful for her safety.
“They were not on our list.”
The city said in December that it would stop processing requests for asylum for the families of illegal immigrants.
But it said that it had a backlog of more than 100,000 applications for asylum.
A similar lawsuit was also filed last year by the family in the case of an immigrant who was killed in a terrorist attack in Paris on Feb. 12, 2014.
It claims that the police had told him that he had to go home and wait until Feb. 19, when the anniversary of the massacre in which 130 people were killed was celebrated, to apply for asylum, the Associated Press reported.
