If you come to our country, dont expect that you will be taken care of, says French far-right leader
The French far-right leader Marine Le Pen has proposed that children of immigrants who are in the country illegally should be refused school places as part of tough measures to restrict state services.
Ive got nothing against foreigners but I say to them: if you come to our country, dont expect that you will be taken care of, treated [by the health system] and that your children will be educated for free, Le Pen said.
Thats finished now, its the end of playtime, she told an audience at a conference organised by a polling group in Paris.
The leader of the National Front (FN) is forecast by opinion polls to finish second in next years presidential election but she is hoping for new momentum after the victory of Donald Trump in the US.
Afterwards she clarified that she only wanted to block education for immigrants who were in the country illegally, not all foreigners.
