End to birthright citizenship in France’s Mayotte causes dismay in Comoros

Every year, thousands of people attempt the perilous 70km sea crossing from Comoros to the French overseas department of Mayotte in search of a better life there. But now, the French government has announced plans to take a radical step to deter more migrants from coming: denying citizenship to children born on Mayotte to foreign parents. For many in Comoros, itself a former French colony, the move has come as a shock, though not all are convinced it will stop people from attempting to leave.
