One week before the arrival of the immigration bill in the Senate, on November 6, the National Rally (RN) could well help the government obtain a narrow majority in the National Assembly. In any case, this is what Marine Le Pen suggested, invited on Sunday to the France 3 set.
“A small law with small measures which improve the situation a little bit, we can vote for it,” explained the boss of the RN deputies, while judging that it will not solve “the problem of illegal immigration”. “There are some measures that improve the procedures a little,” she said. The fact remains that Marine Le Pen's troops will not vote in favor of the text if, and only if, its article 3 - which provides for the regularization of irregular foreigners in professions in shortage - is deleted.
For several weeks, tensions have been crystallizing around this provision contested by the right and the nationalists, but also by part of the right wing of the majority. With or without article 3, Marine Le Pen nevertheless remains circumspect about the effects of the bill carried by the Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin. “It’s not going to change our total inability to manage immigration,” she insisted. “Our government is completely incapable of not only managing illegal immigration, but the truth is that there has never been as much legal immigration as under Emmanuel Macron,” she continued. .
The double finalist in the presidential election also considered that the government, forced to resort numerous times to article 49.3 of the Constitution to have texts adopted in the Assembly without a vote, “should note that in the situation in which it is, he should return to the polls.” “When we find ourselves in a situation such as this, we proceed to dissolve the Assembly,” she judged, while saying she was convinced that Emmanuel Macron would not resort to it “because 'he knows he would come out of it weakened.'
