The French far-right leader Jean-Marie Le Pen, comparing immigrants to birds, said his policy was not to expel them but "allow them to leave. When you have a cherry tree, you will see swarms of starlings arrive just when the cherries are ripe and you are about to pick it," he told Radio France Inter. "You can make all the noise you want; they won't leave until all the cherries are gone."
