The migrant crisis was started when Merkel brazenly decided to just invite millions of brown “children” into her country.
To this day, we don’t know exactly how many came.
And now, we have the problem of these initial migrants bringing their families over as well. AND to top it all off, there is talk of yet another wave.
The European Union is bracing itself for a fresh surge of migrants in the spring and summer of 2018, as the bloc continues to struggle with the ongoing crisis.
While often described in the past tense, the migrant crisis is far from being resolved, with a meeting of EU interior ministers on Thursday anxious to prepare the continent for increased pressure on its land and maritime borders as the weather improves, the Financial Times reports.
Despite numbers having declined from their 2015 high due to a multi-billion euro deal with the Turks to stop them from letting migrants cross freely into Greece and the Italians taking action against NGO “rescue” ships acting as a “taxi service” for Libya-based people-smugglers, the numbers crossing the Mediterranean still stood at 172,301 in 2017.
So really, it never stopped. It just slowed down for a bit.
Also, apparently, some Greek EUrocrat declared that there is no foreseeable end in site to the migrant wave and that everyone just needs to suck it up and live with it.
“It’s time to face the truth. We cannot and will never be able to stop migration” in a POLITICO article titled ‘Europe’s Migrants Are Here to Stay’ at the end of 2017.
He declared in no uncertain terms that, “Migration is deeply intertwined with [the EU’s] policies on economics, trade, education and employment — to name just a few,” and insisted that European countries could not remain “homogenous and migration-free” in future.
Yeah, we’ll just have to see about that, won’t we?
