EU far-right demands halt to refugee influx after Paris attacks
by Frank Zeller
European populist and far-right leaders on Monday seized on the jihadist attacks in Paris to demand the continent stem the record migrant influx, charging that terrorists could hide among the masses.
France's anti-immigration National Front leader Marine Le Pen called for an "immediate halt" to new arrivals, while Germany's xenophobic PEGIDA movement drew thousands to their latest anti-Islam rally.
Hungary's hardline Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has shut out refugees with razor-wire fences, said that "terrorists have exploited mass migration by mingling in the mass of people leaving their homes in the hope of a better life".
