“That has to stop! “, Estimated the former minister Nicolas Sarkozy, who travels in the Alpes-Maritimes, a very right-wing department and a border crossing point for thousands of migrants, despite a large and expensive police device on the border with Italy.
When she came to regional tenors of the right-wing Republican party such as MP Eric Ciotti and Cannes Mayor David Lisnard, she justified the emphasis on immigration restrictions by saying that they “order” at the heart of (our) restoration project.
“The integration issues are very important. If we want to remain a country of asylum, it means that Parliament decides on immigration decisions and quotas every year, ”she told the press.
“The law is badly made, it was changed under François Hollande to allow pseudo-minors to refuse minority tests,” she said.
“You can see that it is dysfunctional,” she added, referring to the increase in the number of foreign minors hired by the Alpes-Maritimes (174 in 2014, 2,683 in 2020, probably 4,000 by the end of 2021) and of the ” 90% run away “.
When it comes to asylum issues, she suggests submitting applications abroad “in embassies or consulates” or, if necessary, at the border using an “accelerated procedure” based on the waiting area at Paris Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport. According to her, the applicant would be put in detention and then brought back if unsuccessful: “It is quick and it enables us to give asylum to those who need it and to release those who are there to enjoy our rights abuse. “.
