French Election: Marine Le Pen vows end to Shenzhen treaty

Speaking at a rally in Paris, the Front National leader Marine Le Pen slammed the Shenzhen treaty by calling it irresponsible and promised to put an end to the Shenzhen if she is elected. She tried to differentiate herself from other candidates by citing that no other Presidential runner are calling for an end to this treaty and restoring four pillars of sovereignty. Speaking to the crowd of thousands, she said, "I would decide on a moratorium on all legal immigration to stop this frenzy, this uncontrolled situation that is dragging us down…….We got rid of our physical borders and that turned our countries into train stations for all immigrants around the world. I will end Schengen and restore our national borders…..No other candidate is proposing this, none of them.” And she added that the end of the Shenzhen system would be followed by much more drastic, more reasonable, more humane, and more manageable rules on immigration. She added, "Give us France back, for God's sake,”.  She said that as The President of France, her first act would be to restore French borders and she explained that the choice in the Sunday’s election is simple to vote for a France that is rising or vote for a France that is sinking.
