French far right candidate Marine Le Pen is promising a freeze on long-term visas as soon as she takes office, followed by a tax on any company that hires foreign workers. Ahead of Sunday’s first-round election, Le Pen told RTL radio she would issue an order to immediately stop issuing long-term visas for two weeks so the government can verify that they are not taking jobs away from French citizens. Le Pen, who has campaigned against immigration and Europe’s open borders, also wants to impose a 10 percent tax on labour contracts that go to foreigners and seize back control of French borders. Polls show Le Pen is among four leading French candidates, with no clear front-runner.
