The European Union is pushing for countries to deport more illegal migrant-wannabes who are deemed ineligible to stay in the bloc, with a top commissioner noting that only 21 percent of such migrants are actually sent home.
REMIX News Even European Parliament in Strasbourg, EU Home Affairs Commissioner Ylva Johansson, who is well known for her “pro-migration” views, is urging more deportations. “When we fail to return people, this hampers our system and erodes trust. To protect the right to apply for asylum, we have to show that we are appropriately dealing with those who do not qualify for international protection,” she said.
One of the key problems has been countries outside Europe, known as “third countries,” refusing to take back their migrants. (Why do the countries have to agree? Just dump them at the airport and leave.
On the other hand, someone like Johansson is the worst person to have in this role as she has long been an advocate for mass immigration into Europe, saying Europe “needs” more immigrants. In a speech from 2020, she said, “We need fewer irregular arrivals and instead have more regular arrivals. That’s why we have to focus on legal pathways both for migrants to come to contribute to our economy and for refugees that need international protection.”
She is pushing for the EU on Migration and Asylum, a plan that National Rally parliamentary leader Marine Le Pen has labeled “the suicide of Europe.” It would add up to 75 million non-European migrants to Europe each year.
