The Archbishop of Paris, Andre Vingt-Trois has added to mounting criticism of the French government's crackdown on Gypsies, or Roma, calling it a "circus." A poll says the French are split on the issue, and meanwhile the government puts more Roma on planes home to Eastern Europe. Human rights groups say the policy is absurd because many Roma simply return to France. Romania and Bulgaria are members of the European Union, and their citizens can enter France without a visa, but they must get work permits to work in France or residency permits to settle long-term.
