PARIS, September 25. /TASS/. The far-right forces of France and Germany held a protest in Paris on Thursday against the mass inflow of refugees and migrants to the country.

The protest took place outside a consulate building of Germany, from where several groups of migrants have been already taken in buses to France at public expense.

The crowd of around 500 people carried the flags of France, Germany and Hungary, where Prime Minister Viktor Orban is known for a tough position against migrants.

The protesters shouted the slogans "Our people are more important for us than others," "We are owners of our house," "More secure border - less poverty." The demonstrators accused the French and German governments stressing that they hope for the inflow of cheap workforce.

Police forces were deployed to the building, but no incidents took place.

This year, the number of refugees from the Middle East and North Africa coming to Europe has been on the rise amid escalating conflicts in these regions. In the recent weeks, the migrants have been storming border fences, trains and ferry boats.

The migrants issue came to the forefront after the bodies of 71 refugees from Syria were found in a truck in Austria in late August. A total of 2,600 people have died this year as they attempted to flee to Europe.

Experts say the flow of illegal migrants to the EU countries may reach 1 million people by the year-end.
