A series of bomb alerts in Paris and the killing of a teacher in Arras have alerted France. After what happened, the French Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, released the controversy. He called for the “systematic expulsion” of any foreigner deemed dangerous. He considers that “the line of strength is very clear.” This was stated in a press conference.
“The line of stability is very clear. The recognition of the entire national territory of all the dangerous, the systematic withdrawal of residence permits for these foreigners, and the systematic expulsion of any foreigner (…) considered dangerous by the intelligence services,” said Darmanin.
In addition, he listed recent acts of “anti-Semitism” in France. It said there were 189 cases, according to data from the French Ministry of the Interior. “189 anti-Semitic acts have been recorded since last Saturday, and there have been 2,449 complaints on the Pharos digital platform for the advocacy of terrorism or anti-Semitic speeches on the Internet,” he pointed out.
Expulsion of the Russians in the S file
The French Interior Minister revealed that he received permission from President Emmanuel Macron to continue talks with the Russian authorities to “deport Russian citizens who are in the S file to their country of origin.”
Gérald Darmanin says there are “about 60 cases with Russian nationality in the S files.” “About 40 are in prison or have limited freedom, so 20 can be deported if we negotiate with the Russian authorities,” he detailed.
In this sense, the head of the Interior said, “I will send the names to the authorities in a few hours so that we can proceed with the expulsions.” Since 2017, “more than 800 radicalized foreigners” have been expelled from France.
