Immigration the common thread between French, American elections

Immigration the common thread between French, American elections

In case you've been confused by the last few days of punditry, let me say outright that France is not America.

For example, we recently concluded a presidential election in the United States in which many argued that it was imperative to smash the "final glass ceiling" by electing a female president. One doesn't hear that kind of talk in France about Marine Le Pen, who just came in second in the first round of presidential elections. If she wins the runoff against Emmanuel Macron on May 7, she would be France's first female president.

Why is there no "ready for Marine" rhetoric? Because Ms. Le Pen would also be the first "far-right" president....
