Marine Le Pen vows to suspend immigration, and ‘protect’ voters from ‘savage globalisation’ as she declares mass-migration ‘a tragedy for France’

Marine Le Pen vowed to reinstate France’s borders and declared mass-migration as ‘a tragedy’ for her country as she savaged the EU during a rally on Tuesday.

The far-right National Front candidate also pledged to suspend all immigration if she wins the presidency, saying her rivals support ‘savage globalisation’.

Chants of ‘en est chez nous’ – ‘this is our country’ – broke out among the 5,000 supporters who had turned out to hear her speak in Paris ahead of Sunday’s first round of voting.
