Not sure how riots and dual nationality are related.

I'm not sure if linking pride in the sporting accomplishments of one's home country with forcing immigrants to "choose" a nationality is a particularly good idea. Never mind the basic underlying childishness of demanding immigrants root for the French football team. It's a sport, Le Pen. Not war.

Le Pen and those of the discredited ideology should stop and think before continually sounding off about matters of race and immigration. The French whose roots lie outside of France are there as a direct result of France's colonial history, which in many ways still continues with "overseas regions" such as Guadeloupe, French Guiana, Martinique, Mayotte and Réunion as well as it's 5 "overseas collectives" French Polynesia, Saint-Barthélemy, Saint-Martin, Saint-Pierre and Miquelon and Wallis and Futuna. Most of which are lands inhabited by peoples of color. There is an admitted almost 2 million French citizens living abroad, should they be harassed, castigated and scape-goated for the ills of these various countries ? In fact so much do the French wish to maintain their French European culture that there are some 488 French language schools abroad complete with French teachers in the "French international school system" Also, France holds on to it's external dominions, as the majority of it's x colonies have to pay it monies in perpetuity, for the privilege of once being colonized by France, including desperately poor countries such as Haiti, Not just the Le Pens of this world, but the other rising racists across Europe and the greater White world should think twice how they treat others, as once the flow of people "back home" begins, it wont be only one way traffic.

“There is not another country in the world that would accept what we go through on our territory,” she said.

Funny how bigots everywhere say that exact same thing.

She's a chip off the old blockhead unfortunately.
