    On Saturday, January 19, during a campaign speech for the European elections in Thors, Vaucluse, Le Pen addressed the government’s current migration policy, reported the Obs . Immigration was the main theme of her speech.

    “Globalization, with the irrational opening of borders, has delivered our streets, our neighbourhoods, our cities, our villages, to a delusional immigration which transforms certain places into zones of non-France”, said the president of the National Rally.

    She appeared along with Thierry Mariani, who recently joined the RN (he was formerly with the Republicans) and Jordan Bardella, the fresh face of the party.

    Le Pen denounced these “areas where one feels alien in one’s own country, areas where the laws of the Republic are no longer applied, areas that impose laws other than those of the Republic, those of the mob or those of the Islamists “.

    The leader of the RN added: “It is time to put an end to this scandal and to remind everyone that here we are in France, and that France means applying French laws.” She was cheered the crowd, who began to chant, “We’re at home.”

    Le Pen also tore into the United Nations Global Compact on Migration signed in Marrakech at the end of last year. According to her, it is “the illustration” of Emmanuel Macron’s “project” for Europe, “a project that makes the French people disappear by the migratory dilution that it organises, a project which confirms the exit of the France of history.

    “The people refuse to be mired in a savage globalisation that ruins them, in a system that enslaves men or companies to the law of the jungle, the dictatorship of financial markets, the reign of money as king.”

    At the age of just 23, the former Sorbonne geography student Bardella, is top of the list of candidates for the coming EP elections. “We are pretty confident,” he told The Financial Times.

    “We are going to try to retrieve our sovereignty from the European Commission,” he said of the EU’s executive body. “In concrete terms, the idea is to have in May the maximum number of sovereigntists elected to the [European] parliament,” Bardella said.

    “The 480 000 illegal immigrants present on our soil should not live in the expectation of becoming citizens, but rather in the expectation of their expulsion,” Bardella told the audience in Vaucluse, saying that “immigration implies a cost for France, a financial and budgetary, security, cultural cost”.

    Bardella said: “Our allies in Italy and Austria have shown us that other choices are possible: with them, and with all our allies, present and future, we will impose the will of the nations and peoples in Brussels for victory on May 26!”

    Le Pen said earlier at a gathering in Paris that the European Parliament elections in May should be a referendum on whether President Macron remains in office. “If Macron does not have the wisdom to go back to the people by dissolving parliament, then let the political arbitrage come from European elections,” she said.

    “The European Union as it stands is a menace to our identity and to our security,” she added. The battle is now between nationalists and globalists,” Le Pen concluded, while praising the Yellow Vests as a “healthy popular revolt”.

    The Oxford Union in Britain has been meanwhile faced criticism for inviting Le Pen’s niece Marion Marechal to speak at one of the country’s oldest debating societies, Critics claimed the Union was inviting “people from movements who most commentators would view as racist”.

    Oxford East MP Annaliese Dodds said the debating society seemed “determined to invite very controversial figures”. Dodds told the BBC it would be “sensible” if the Oxford Union uninvited their French guest.
