As Socialist rally was cancelled, Marine Le Pen reacts to antisemitism allegations

Madame President: As you pointed out, a child was put into the back of a van and taken to a detention centre. That’s inhumane. What should have happened in the process of issuing the visa was never the issue – these people were admitted with it. The issue is what happens with people when they leave these centers…

Our (Tories) government has done nothing… Donald Trump is being responsible and it’s not enough… There’s not enough work being done at the border and with partners in other countries… I know we talk about Africa; they’re coming from all over Africa… They want to be a part of Europe…

But in France? France has to find a way… Of letting the French citizens know: This is not going to happen again! But we’re the ones playing with our nerves… What we need is solidarity from our friends in other parts of the world… and a more solidarity from the entire European Union. There are signs that this may happen. As a nation, we need to mobilise ourselves…

But in the meantime, we have to continue to be on the alert and move to impose border controls… Immigration is not an enemy of the country, we need migrants, but you have to act with humanity.

On April 29, 2015, I will be in Calais. And there are some ideas about reforming the system in Calais. That’s the system we have for the moment… To expand facilities and build a better repatriation option and guarantee that those who arrive will be considered to be refugees.

I am a man who is guided by logic. And… the first part of this logic is to lead by example…

On the 26th, the transport of refugees will stop. On the 27th, the customs departure points and the Immigration Office will be dismantled. And if we’re going to be true to the spirit of friendship we see in the eyes of President Macron, from November 27 we are going to strengthen immigration controls along the borders. I don’t want to take risks in doing that. Because I don’t want any accidents…

On January 27, 2018, people will be able to walk to our ports. At that time, people will be able to walk to our ports because they’ll not be turned back.

I think you see that this is the right moment to start and I will be there. From the first week of January.
