French President Hollande Announces: We Will Take 30,000 Refugees, ‘Life Must Go On’ (

Michelle Fields 18 Nov 2015

French President Francois Hollande says that, despite the terrorist attacks in Paris that killed more than 120 people, “life must go on” and that his nation will still accept 30,000 Syrian refugees.

According to ABC News:

<blockquote>“Life should resume fully,” Hollande told a gathering of the country’s mayors, who gave him a standing ovation. “What would France be without its museums, without its terraces, its concerts, its sports competitions?

“France should remain as it is. Our duty is to carry on our lives.”

In the same spirit, he added, “30,000 refugees will be welcomed over the next two years. Our country has the duty to respect this commitment,” explaining that they will undergo vigorous security checks.</blockquote>Hollande addressed the critics who are concerned about bringing in refugees after the Paris attack. At least one of the terrorists involved in the attack on Friday entered Europe by pretending to be a refugee.

“Some people say the tragic events of the last few days have sown doubts in their minds,” said Hollande. He added that France has a “humanitarian duty” to help the refugees who are fleeing their war-torn countries.

“We have to reinforce our borders while remaining true to our values,” he said.

[Marie Le Pen just won the next election!  Can France have elections when there is a lack of confidence or whatever they call it?   This will NOT go over well with millions of actual real French citizens.]</blockquote>
