Illegal immigration: a deputy from Mayotte demands to “lock” the border “left wide open”


The elected LIOT Estelle Youssouffa wants the Comoros to be sanctioned, while the Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, is once again traveling on the island.

He was there last August.

Once again traveling to Mayotte, the Minister of the Interior Gérald Darmanin reaffirmed his desire to strengthen the means of combating illegal immigration, mostly Comorians, on the French island.

Faced with rampant unemployment and unabated crime, MP Estelle Youssouffa is sounding the alarm.


We must lock our border which is left wide open

", affirms on France Info the elected representative of the LIOT group in the National Assembly.

Finally, we absolutely need a change of tone and discourse

with the Comoros

, that they be sanctioned for the migratory pressure they exert in Mayotte.


Estelle Youssouffa believes that, in France, "

it is very difficult to take the measure of the crisis

" that Mayotte is going through.

Ten years ago, the reports are clear, there was not a single violence against people.

“Half the population of the island, continues the MP, “

is currently foreign


Mayotte can no longer.

» Degradation of public services, insufficient infrastructures for «

demographic evolution


It's just that everything is saturated.

(...) We undergo the migratory flow.


Gérald Darmanin has also reaffirmed his desire to toughen the law of the soil.


The Thani law has already restricted land rights in Mayotte, but we have not observed a decrease in births or arrivals of migrant boats

", replies Estelle Youssouffa, who advocates a legislative response to the right of regularization and the right to nationality.

But there are issues that are more pressing.

“And to add:”

It is the question of the protection of the border.
