Correction. It is imploding.
The mayor of Paris ought to tell it to Macron. President Emmanuel Macron favors financial sanctions for European Union countries that refuse migrants with proven asylum status — deepening the divide between union members over the migrant crisis.
EU will ‘IMPLODE’ if Brussels fails to face up to migrant crisis, warns Paris mayor
THE European Union will collapse if it continues to remain passive in the face of the escalating migrant crisis, the mayor of Paris has warned, adding France was not pulling its weight for refugees. The left-wing Anne Hidalgo also condemned the French government’s refusal to take in a migrant ship with some 630 migrants stranded on board after Italy refused to let it dock.
By Romina McGuinness, The Express, Mon, Jun 25, 2018:
She told Le Journal du Dimanche: “France has failed to rise to the migration challenge. As for the European Union, if it continues to do nothing [to solve the crisis], it will implode.”
The mayor also slammed French President Emmanuel Macron’s tough new immigration and asylum policy, saying she found the government’s hardline stance towards immigrants “hard to fathom”.
She said: “The president describes himself as very pro-European, and yet on the refugee issue, France has failed to live up to expectations.”
Mrs Hidalgo added Mr Macron’s predecessor and former mentor, François Hollande, had a more “pragmatic” and humane approach to the migrant problem.
