France: Le Pen ramps up hateful anti-immigration rhetoric

Wednesday 19th April 2017

FRENCH far-right presidential challenger Marine Le Pen reacted yesterday to increasing pressure from left hopeful Jean-Luc Mélenchon by cranking up her anti-immigration rhetoric.

The National Front (FN) leader told a rally that she would suspend all legal immigration into France because she wanted to stop “a mad, uncontrolled situation.”

She and the bankers’ candidate Emmanuel Macron had previously seemed like the contenders in a two-horse race.

But Mr Mélenchon and conservative hopeful Francois Fillon, who is embroiled in corruption allegations, have both made progress in recent weeks.

Mr Macron sneered yesterday that choosing the left candidate would be like “Cuba without the sun.”

Mr Mélenchon criss-crossed Paris by barge on Monday to address supporters and set up holograms of himself yesterday to appear at several events simultaneously.

About a third of French voters are still undecided, opinion polls suggest, making this Sunday’s first round unpredictable.
