Even if it asserts in the JDD not having hardened her speech, Valérie Pécresse, the patron saint of the Ile-de-France region and presidential candidate, presents a series of tough measures to “counter the Islamist threat in France”.

In the first place, it wants to facilitate the expulsion of foreign Islamists from the territory. Out of 22,000 people registered for radicalization, “a quarter of the people are foreigners”, according to her. “In the 1980s, we evicted between 1,000 and 1,500 people a year. It is absolutely necessary to reactivate this policy of expulsion in absolute urgency for the threat of disturbing public order, ”she adds.

In addition, the presidential candidate wants to expand the crime of “intelligence with the enemy”. According to her, this incrimination exists in the penal code. This provision is foreseen in time of war. It proposes to extend it “to the fight against terrorism”. This would, according to her, “help justice to condemn those who have participated in meetings with terrorists, liked sites on social networks or advocated terrorism… When one is stuck with anti-terrorism, c ‘is based on objective facts, ”she says.

The president of the Ile-de-France region also proposes to require an “oath of respect for the values ​​of the Republic” in “all public functions, whether state, territorial or hospital, including for contractual . For her, this measure goes beyond the symbolic framework. “It is a necessary commitment with legal consequences, because today, administrations or public enterprises do not have the right to dismiss or dismiss a radicalized civil servant,” she says. “I refuse that our laws adapt to a religion,” she adds.

In another register, Valerie Pécresse calls for the “penalization” of constraints aimed at forcing women or young girls to wear a veil, which “is not a garment like any other”. According to her, the victims must be able to be “listened to”. “They need to know that the company is them and help them break free from this grip. “

Finally, the candidate for the nomination of the right and the center is in favor of the use of facial recognition at the entrance of public transport to “match with the anti-terrorism files”.

Measures that Valérie Pécresse undertakes to transform into bills “within three months of our coming to power. Because according to her, Emmanuel Macron became aware of this problem late and too many delays were taken.
