Anti-Macron conservative calls for Europe ports ‘BLOCKADE’ to stop migrant flow

European Union should close its doors to migrants and refugees, Conservative senator Bruno Retailleau said as the vocal critic of French President Emmanuel Macron also claimed Brussels could not house all the misery in the world, Express reported.

Mr Retailleau, a senior member of France’s right-wing Les Républicains party, told Europe 1 radio: “We must act with more firmness. Because Europe cannot absorb all the misery in the world.”

He then called for a “blockade of the Mediterranean” to stem migrant flows to frontline EU states.

Mr Retailleau added that Europe needs a “three-tiered” system to protect itself against illegal immigration as he urged EU leaders to step up efforts to prevent migrants and refugees from crossing the Mediterranean,

He also called for Brussels to reinforce security at the EU’s external and internal borders.
