Presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has hit out at Francois Hollande’s migrant policy
The controversial politician cited the weeks-long cold wave which has seen temperatures drop well below freezing nationwide, and said that government officials were doing more formigrants than they had ever done for France’s homeless.
“It’s unbelievable and disgusting; and just one of the consequences of the government’s irresponsible refugee policy.”
She claimed French officials are doing more for migrants than for homeless people
We are giving migrants beds but ignoring the needs of homeless French people
She said: “There should be an official waiting period of two years. Immigrants – legal ones – should not be given immediate access to welfare.
“Your host country should not have to support you financially. There are many French people living in the US, Germany, and Australia, and they do not expect the US, German, and Australian government to pay their medical bills and children’s school fees.”
Mrs Le Pen also called her presidential rival Emmanuel Macron a political ‘imposter’
She said: “He is neither left nor right. He is Brussels’ candidate and the candidate of globalisation.
“And he is obsessed with media attention. His supporters behave like Justin Bieber fans!”
