Black Vests Invade an Airport in France

Nothing very surprising here. The great nation of France has found itself inundated with refugees. They have camped out in the streets of Paris. They formed a settlement uncharitably called The Jungle in Calais.

France has responded by deporting some of them, often to their African nations of origin.

Evidently, those targeted for deportation are unhappy. They  chose to express their outrage by closing down a terminal at the Charles de Gaulle airport in Roissy on Sunday.

Their demand was simple: they insist on receiving legal status to remain in France. As one protester was heard announcing: they have a right to be in France. It was a fair extension of the concept of a borderless world, where citizens of the world have the right to live wherever they want whenever they want. And to enjoy generous welfare handouts.

The Daily Mail has the story:

Hundreds of undocumented migrants occupied a terminal at Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris yesterday to protest against Air France carrying out deportations and demanding they be given permanent residency.

Footage uploaded to Twitter shows some 500 members of the migrant support group La Chapelle Debout gathered in Terminal 2 of France's largest airport.  

The protesters called on Air France to 'stop any financial, logistical or political participation in deportations' and demanded a meeting with its leaders, as well as French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe.  

Members of the organisation, which describes itself as the biggest union of undocumented immigrants in France, also call themselves GiletsNoirs - or black vests.
In the footage, one demonstrator can be heard saying into a megaphone: 'France does not belong to the French! Everyone has a right to be here!'

We will see what the notoriously weak-kneed government of President Emmanuel Macron does about this. The proper response would be to increase deportations, but that is probably wishful thinking.
