French fracas over circus visas

Authorities face accusations of targeting Roma after circus workers have work visas revoked.

    Many of the Roma circus workers in France have had their work visas revoked.

    The French authorities say that this has nothing to do with general crackdown against the Roma. Instead, they accuse the circus of underpaying its workers and employing child performers.

    The Gypsy Circus denies these accusations and say this is just a ploy by the government to kick out more Roma out of the country.
