A far-right French mayor is being charged with incitement of hatred and discrimination because he said a school with a vast majority of Muslim children is a “problem.”

“In a class in the city centre in my town, 91 percent of the children are Muslims. Obviously, this is a problem. There are limits to tolerance,” Robert Menard said, according to France24, which sites French news channel LCI.

On the country’s first day of school in September, Menard also tweeted remorsefully of “the great replacement,” a foreboding phrase popularized by French writer Renaud Camus that references the belief that Muslim immigrants are gradually colonizing France.

“I just described the situation in my town,” Menard, mayor of Béziers, told Agence France-Presse (AFP), according to France24.

Menard has stirred controversy before when he reportedly placed anti-migrant posters around his town in October just before the arrival of refugees.

The notices were titled “That’s It, They’re Coming,” with a depiction of crowds of male migrants outside the famous cathedral in Beziers, reports BBC. (RELATED: France Is Scrambling To Close 160 Questionable Mosques)

Menard, a former journalist, is an ally to the anti-immigrant and National Front party, which is currently led by French nationalist Marine Le Pen.

Licra, an anti-racism advocacy group, told France24 that Menard’s trial date is set for March 8.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
