An opinion poll suggesting far-right leader Marine Le Pen could win the first round of next year's presidential election has caused a shock in France.
The survey for Le Parisien newspaper puts the National Front leader, who took over from her father Jean-Marie in January, ahead of all other candidates.
It gives her 23% of the vote, 2% ahead of both President Nicolas Sarkozy and Socialist leader Martine Aubry.

Well if you're a globalist / Capitalist country trading in a global manufacturing market, Then manufacturing employers need immigrants from poor countries to come over and compete with the native workforce to keep wages low....And that is what i believe has happened.
But when you become a nationalist country, You can ban imports and allow only items manufactured in your country to be sold for the home market....Imo this would allow for higher wages and a better standard of living.
Natural immigration from equal countries isn't a problem, Its mass economic migrations from the poorer countries that affect a country's populace.
That's just my thoughts on the subject.
