International migration had become a challenge for the identity of many nation states. The article is devoted to the problems of immigration into France. It discusses the French population attitudes to immigration, the government's policy with regard to immigrants. A question is raised about the need to improve the current model or to create a new one which would propose a compromise between authoritarian assimilation and liberal integration. It is pointed out that the boundaries of tolerance, as well as the rights and duties of visitors, should be clearly identified.
