In what some are calling a swing to the right, French President Emmanuel Macron has vowed to follow through on the “radical” immigration reform he promised prior to his election, with ALL illegal alien invaders convicted of a crime to be deported after serving their sentence.
RT The unexpected move is fueling speculation that his tough rhetoric on (Muslim) immigration is designed to court members of France’s far-right voter base. For context, Macron’s televised interview took place just two weeks after Muslim illegal Ahmed Hanachi stabbed two women to death at the Saint-Charles train station in Marseille.
Hanachi has been in police custody for shoplifting in Lyon just two days prior to the attack. He was released by police the following day despite not having the correct documentation to prove that he was in the country legally. Hanachi reportedly had a total of seven aliases.
Macron discussed the so-called “double penalty” which means that, following conviction, a custodial sentence or financial penalty for undocumented migrants is forgone in favor of immediate expulsion from the country as ordered by the French Ministry of the Interior.
The European Court of Human Rights has repeatedly criticized efforts by members of France’s far-right for pushing such reforms, saying his tough stance on immigration contradicts European humanitarian values.. The ECHR condemned seven such cases in 2015 reports Le Monde.
Sputnik News Journalist Michel Taube, the founder of Opinion Internationale, a French political news resource, told Sputnik France that Macron’s remarks fit into the general trend of a ‘rightward drift’ in European politics, particularly on the issue of immigration.
In reality, the observer noted, it will be very difficult for the French president to follow through with his promises, and to expel hundreds or even thousands of convicted criminal immigrants. “The reason is simple: their home countries will almost certainly refuse to accept their expelled citizens so quickly.”
Taube said. “Do you remember Francois Hollande’s [failed] proposal to deprive dual citizen foreign terrorists of their French citizenship? Macron’s proposal here is very reminiscent of this. It’s odd that he persists in saying that he is neither ‘left nor right’; it’s becoming more and more clear that he leans to the right.”
In a speech during a meeting with prefects last month, the president announced that the government was preparing a full review of France’s asylum and immigration policy, to be unveiled early next year.
Macron has said that it would be necessary to expel all migrants who had been refused asylum. The two kinds of migrants that are considered illegal are those who arrive illegally or those who refuse to apply for refugee status.
Paris is no longer Paris, all because of the Muslim invasion, mostly illegal.
