The French parliament has passed legislation toughening France's immigration policy after months of political wrangling.

The amended bill was backed by both President Emmanuel Macron's centrist Renaissance party and Marine Le Pen's far-right National Rally (RN).

The vote divided Mr Macron's party, and the health minister Aurélien Rousseau announced he was going to resign.

Left-wing parties accused Mr Macron of making concessions to the far right.

A previous draft was rejected by parliament last week, by National Rally as well as the left. In response, the government redrafted the bill, making some of its provisions tougher.

The new legislation makes it more difficult for migrants to bring family members to France and delays their access to welfare benefits.

It also bans detaining minors in detention centres.

This should be a response to the international law forcing countries to accept unreasonable numbers of migrants which are unsustainable.
Macron has realised that le Pen is a definite threat to him at the next election - it's not really a far right issue it's fear of changing the dynamic of the French identity.
