For Le Pen and her supporters, "massive migration," notably from Muslim North Africa, is supplanting French civilization and at the root of many France's modern woes.Traditional Muslim dress, which many in France consider a gateway to radicalization, could disappear from public view should Le Pen win the presidency.The National Front's No. 2, Florian Philippot, said last weekend that Le Pen's platform calls for extending a 2004 law banning "ostensible" religious symbols like Muslim headscarves from French classrooms to include the streets. Le Pen took over leadership of the National Front in 2011 from her father, party co-founder Jean-Marie Le Pen. But the slogan "French First" – coined by the elder Le Pen in 1985 – remains alive under Marine Le Pen.Under Le Pen, the National Front was France's big winner in 2014 European Parliament elections, taking more seats than any other French party.Le Pen is expected to present her full presidential agenda during a Feb. 4-5 convention.
