Marine Le Pen says she wants to stop all immigration to France in a bid to stop ISIS terrorists.
The leader of the Front National said she wants to end all immigration and boost France’s borders in the wake of the migrant crisis.
Marine Le Pen said terrorists have used the crisis to infiltrate France to carry out deadly attacks.
ISIS claimed responsibility for the Paris terror attacks in November 2015 and the Nice Bastille Day attack that have seen France in a continued state of emergency.
She said: “I want to provide security. In this flow of migrants there are terrorists who have slipped in. At least four who managed to get in with the flow of migrants.
“ISIS told us they were going to wreak havoc. Once again we must close our borders.
“The French can no longer deal with it, they no longer want migrants sent to different towns and villages without asking their permission.”
Ms Le Pen, who has been leading opinion polls to win the first run off in the French presidential election next month, said France cannot depend on Greece or Italy to help stem the number of migrants arriving in Europe.
Questioned on immigration alongside the four other candidates in France’s presidential election in a televised three-hour debate, Ms Le Pen said France must scrap welfare for migrants.
She said: “We must put a stop to legal and illegal immigration. I’ve been saying the same thing. 200,000 illegal immigrants have been coming into France each year.
