In just a matter of days France will have a new President and the difference between the two candidates Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron is so extreme that it’s being dubbed one of the most important French elections ever.
Le Pen fully supports nationalism and above everything puts France first.
Macron, on the other hand, supports globalism and open borders for France.
Now, Le Pen’s rhetoric has been very clear but Macron still has a lot of explaining to do.
Firstly, Macron’s support of open borders and unmitigated immigration comes during a time when countries with heavy refugee populations are seeing a massive increase in crime and terror attacks. France, being one of those nations.
So, how, is France going to curb terror attacks from refugees if they continue to open their borders to them?
And Macron’s view may not only affect France’s borders but also potentially the borders of Poland and Hungary.
Both Poland and Hungary have been very strict on immigration, refusing to take in refugees but Macron is pleading with the EU to sanction the two nations for their refusal to take in refugees.
“When the rights and values of the European Union are not respected, I want sanctions to be taken,” Macron said in a statement.
And if Macron becomes France’s next president these pleas will have a lot more weight in Brussels.
Lawmakers from Poland and Hungary are now “furious” at Macron for his plea to EU and thinks that it absolutely ridiculous.
Given the power that the EU has over the countries of Europe, Poland and Hungary may be forced to open their borders to refugees but I believe Poland and Hungary will most likely leave the EU before taking that order from the EU. Yes, a Le Pen presidency could initiate Frexit but a Macron president could see both Poland and Hungary leaving the EU. So it is very likely that the EU isn’t going to last very long again.
Yes, a Le Pen presidency could initiate Frexit but a Macron president could see both Poland and Hungary leaving the EU. So it is very likely that the EU is going to become weaker regardless of who gets elected.
