French President Francois Hollande today promised that “France will remain a country of freedom,” defending his decision to honor a commitment to accept migrants and refugees despite Friday’s deadly terrorist attacks in Paris.
“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.

There are going to be larger problems. This is just like the US. The French people do not want it allowed but the government is forcing them. Kind of like the US. That to me is worse than some surveillance to stop future attacks. More than 70 in the US in the last 18 months have been arrested and tied to ISIS/ISIL.
