France turn on Schengen Area as migrant crisis boldens Frexit ‘Can’t host whole world!'


President of Generation Frexit Charles-Henri Gallois warned the French population was turning on the European Union for allowing large numbers of migrants to enter the continent with little restrictions. He explained many migrants entering France were arriving from Greece and said many were “economic migrants” rather than refugees fleeing persecution or war. The French campaigner then told TalkRADIO his solution to fixing the problem and delivered a stern warning to the EU and told them to be “tougher” on immigration.

Speaking on TalkRADIO, Mr Gallois discussed the migrant crisis after record numbers of migrants entered the UK via France several weeks ago. 

Mr Gallois looked at the problem and said: “The big issue is [asylum seekers] shouldn’t be in France and France as a big problem with the European Union and with the Schengen area.

“Because they don’t arrive directly in France because it’s very hard to arrive there but they arrive from Greece, they arrive from Italy and within the Schengen Area, they are free to go wherever they want.

“That’s also why the UK is suffering because many migrants want to come to France or the UK so we receive many of them.

“We are not able to integrate [them] or it could be a massive change for the country.”

According to France’s National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies, between 2006 and 2019, the number of migrants living in France went from 193,400 to 272,400.

Over the last weekend, around 600 migrants were intercepted crossing the English Channel as Home Secretary Priti Patel ramps up preventative measures. 

The Government is seeking to make the journey for migrants “unviable” by cracking down on people traffickers who are helping to smuggle people into the UK. 

Under the proposed Nationality and Borders Bill, asylum seeker applications will be influenced by whether or not they have passed through safe countries to enter the UK. 

A survey conducted by Ifop for the French daily Les Echos found 57 percent of French respondents said they would clearly support plans to see “less Europe” at the next presidential election.

French President Emmanuel Macron has been a staunch supporter of the European Union and was strongly opposed to the UK’s departure. 

Director of the Bruges Group think tank Robert Oulds argued that eurosceptics in the continent, most notably France, wanted Brexit Britain to succeed.

He told Express.co.uk: “France has serious difficulties at the moment that aren’t being helped by the bloc.

“Its economy has been absolutely hammered by being a part of the single currency.

“They can’t compete with Germany and it is adding to the divisions that exist in French society.
