"No migrant from Lampedusa should set foot in France. We absolutely need a total moratorium on immigration and we need to take back control of our borders. It is up to us nations to decide who enters and who stays on our territory." This was said this evening by Marine Le Pen, leader of the extreme right French of the Rassemblement National, live on TF1 news.
"Those who appeal to the European Union are wrong," Le Pen continued, "because it is vain and dangerous. Vain because the European Union wants immigration, dangerous because it suggests that we are delegating to the European Union the decision on the immigration policy that we must conduct. It is up to the French people to decide and their decision must be respected."
