    Being immigrated in France what can happen to me if Marine Le Pen wins the elections

    Within 9 days there will be elections in France, i am an immigrant , i came from Portugal to live in France, i´ve been living here for 8 months now. I haven't been much updated to politics here, but i know that the candidate Marie Le Pen won't support emigration will take France out of the Union European, but's that's all i know. what else should i know.

    Thanks in Advance

    She doesn't become supreme ruler if she wins you know? She can't just say "We're leaving the EU".

    Yea, it's a bit more complex than that. Perhaps Faetal knows a bit more, being in similar shoes and generally pretty knowledgeable about Stuff™ and Life©

    I don't know for sure but I read that criminals and the Portugese will be rounded up, drawn and quartered, so there's that. Be careful my friend.

    Nah. She'd probably want to make life for immigrants more uncomfortable, and push the population to be more openly anti-immigrant just like we've seen in the US and UK, though. So it's nothing positive to look forward to. I'm really hoping their better angels prevail for their turn in this year's drama.

    Incidently, quick English lesson, emigrant is a person leaving a country (you're an emigrant of Portugal) and immigrant is one coming into a country (you're an immigrant in France).

    Thank you for the replies, yes Demagogue you´re right i´m immigrant . Once France , USA and Uk fought together against the German fascists, now roles are changing, German is having a better politic with little influence by the nationalists , and USA, uk and France are having more and more nationalists who want isolation, immigrants out and back to some conservative lifestyle.

    You will be escorted to the nearest scaffold and guillotined to the notes of La Marseillaise for Gloire & Empire.

    Excellent idea! We are a safe, comfortable country with good wines and great fences. You will be safe here from both godless liberals and the Islamic hordes. Deus vult!

    Portuguese don't have a reputation for gang rape, rioting and theft. You should be fine.

    I wouldn't say what we're going through now is fascistic. Rather, it's the usual bog standard isolationist, anti-immigrant stances that pop up when things start getting weird, and people start getting scared.

    Every three generations, it seems, humanity has to rise up as one and do something that ends up becoming a cautionary tale 20 years later.

    That cyclical thing may sound soothing (and a bit worldly wise) but I don't buy it. Especially because it sounds like we can just sit this out. And we've seen how well this worked with the Brexit, with Trump's election, with tonight's vote in Turkey to drop parliamentary democracy for a presidential system. Next up is the French election. This isn't going to just swing back by itself.

    Marine Le Pen can't be elected president. It's mathematically impossible. It doesn't matter if her program is left wing, if she's a woman, or if her main advisor is gay, as long as she's called Le Pen, and as long as her party is called Front National, it won't happen. Hell, she could become a transgender muslim and kill her own father and still, she wouldn't stand a chance.

    People have developed pavlovian reflexes when it comes to her. Just the mention of her name or anything vaguely related to her is enough to instill fear and disgust in the general population. It's like she has a contagious disease and nobody wants to risk getting infected. Just look at the reactions in this thread. Look at your own reaction OP.

    When it comes to politics people really have a very short memory for some reason. People seem to have forgotten the 2002 presidential election. The media warned us: the darkest hours of our history had returned, fascism was back and there would be nothing to stop it. In the end, it was stopped by 80% of the population. Not 51%, not 52%, 80 fucking %. That's the kind of result you get in a banana republic.

    More recently we had the regional elections in 2015, which people seem to have blacked out from their memory as well. Marine Le Pen was more popular than ever, the media told us, it was gonna be a landslide victory, they said, she was gonna win most of the regions and the country would descend in a new era of fascism. She got precisely 0 regions. Not 1, not 2, 0.

    No, you can rest easy OP, Mélanchon, our next president, will be very accomodating to minorities of all kinds. Sure, first he's gonna leave the EU by staying in it, and he's gonna renegotiate the EU treaties by shouting very loudly. But after that, everything will be back to normal. Six months and a 100-million-euro fine later, he'll scrupulously apply the EU Broad Economic Policy Guidelines which will make him as hated as François Hollande. We'll have daily protests, we'll be bombing the shit out of Syria and we'll have an indefinitely renewed state of emergency. Oh and a brand new constitution, because why not. Democracy will be safe.

    I'm not saying it's a cyclical thing exactly, nor am I saying that everything will eventually normalize. But there is something of a rough, slightly predicable pattern things tend to take, especially here in the US.

    It seems to me that once you're so many generations removed from trying times, when you've had so many peaceful years buffering us those hard lessons learned, we eventually start taking it all for granted. Eventually, something comes along that makes us question the notion of our own invincibility, and we inevitably react poorly to it.

    The most tragic thing about it is that we all know how it's going to end. We have, in our short history, probably garnered a couple dozen anti-immigrant isolationist movements that have netted us nothing but pointless pain and strife. What we're seeing now isn't a new thing. Even the reasons why are about the same. There have been thousands, maybe millions of people like Krush making the same hateful excuses to justify whatever idiot stance they believe will save the country. Oh, they're all animals. They don't live like us. They don't respect our way of life. They're taking our jobs and ruining our economy. We must do something before it's too late!

    Who are we jerking our knees at today? The Jews? The Irish? The Polish? Nope. Today, it's the Muslims and the Mexicans.

    ...and if we let things get out of hand, we'll be telling our great grandkids about the registries and the border riots.

    Stop trying to paint France into what it's not. The destabilization of the Middle-East and the killing of millions of Muslims starting from the beginning of the 90s, that's the work of the US and nobody else. The crass racist propaganda in movies, from True Lies to Lone Survivor or Patriots Day, including every movie made by Sasha Baron Cohen ever, that's Hollywood. The wall that Trump is gonna build at the Mexico border that's actually already there: not in France. The colonization of Palestine and mass murder of its inhabitants: I'm sure you can figure that one out.

    Somebody who doesn't have me blacklisted please explain this to these hypocrites so I don't have to repeat myself.

    Admittedly I haven't studied mathematics since I was 14, however I do know what a mathematic impossibility is, and a candidate being elected in an election in which they are standing is not one of them.

    Thank you all for the replies, it is true we are facing stressed times, whenever i watch the news i see the tension between north korea and USA getting stronger, the war in Syria seems to be endless, relations between Trump and Putkin seem to be irregular, terrorism in Europe and USA increases the number of nationalists...i feel like this is all a pot with boiling water waiting to come out to make a huge mess.
