Specifically, he said that the decades of mass "colonizing immigration" could lead to collapse. In April, during a discussion about immigration on the public radio station France Culture, he reiterated his point. (Related: Hungarian expert: MIGRATION is the major reason for France riots.)
"If we do nothing or if we do little, we are going to head either towards a progressive implosion of social trust in France, that is to say toward a society where the quality of life will collapse and where it will be less and less pleasant to live, or, by successive explosions, toward confrontations that will make France a country where one will not be able to live at all," he said at the time.
Brochand was the head of DGSE from 2002 to 2008. Since 2019, he has made repeated calls for a radical change in France's immigration.
It may be time to finally heed his call. The death at the hands of the police of Nahel Merzouk, a 17-year-old of Algerian descent, became a perfect excuse for some to stage a series of violent protests.
Just recently, in an interview published on July 6 on the website of Le Figaro daily newspaper, Brochand exposed "the deadly cocktail of a society of individuals based on openness and democracy and the arrival of entire diasporas with totally different cultural backgrounds."
However, French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin has a different opinion. According to Darmanin, the riots are not linked to immigration as "only" 10 percent of the rioters were foreigners.
For Darmanin, the non-White youth that caused mayhem on the streets of France for days, often invoking the Quran and the name of Allah, have no link to immigration as they are French citizens.
Darmanin's stance isn't exactly surprising. Brochand said he did not think there's currently enough courage among the French political class to do what is necessary to avoid the worst-case scenario: that of confrontation.
"Closing borders in the name of the precautionary principle – the Polish way – has never been seriously considered in our country," Brochand told Le Figaro after the recent rioting, which has seen over 700 members of security forces injured, some 4,000 arrested, and many towns and cities devastated.
Viktor Marsai, executive director of the Hungarian Migration Research Institute (MRI), also believes that migration is the major reason for the ongoing riots in France.
He told the Hungarian channel M1 News that the riots taking place on French streets demonstrate the multitude of problems associated with mass migration.
"In France, in recent decades, there have been several street riots like the current one," said Marsai. He continued that the riots mostly involve "young people from immigrant backgrounds who are not integrated into society, do not go to school, have no job, and seek their rights via street demonstrations."
The MRI executive director also noted that the European Commission's proposed mandatory migrant quota would be a problem. "If the plan is implemented, the number of refugee applications and procedures at the European Union's external borders will increase sharply," he said.
