The presence of immigrants from Africa in France began after World War II to rebuild France. Begin in the 1940s, the number of immigrants continued to increase and most of them came from the Maghreb countries. The high number of non-EU immigrants triggered social problems in France which later developed into Islamophobia. Also in the economic area, the number of unemployed in France was increasing caused by low skilled Maghreb immigrants. The immigrant problem was noticed by France in the 1980s, when François Mitterrand was elected as the Socialist President who ruled France for the first time in two periods. This study was conducted using qualitative methods to describe the development of the migration policy of François Mitterrand's government. The socialist style of government tends to be moderate to immigrants, while the right government has firmer measures. The finding of this article shows that the migration policy during the reign of François Mitterrand is ineffective because the number of illegal immigrants living in France keeps increasing and the process of integration between the two parties was difficult
