V4 Report: Austria: Sebastian Kurz Challenges Angela Merkel for linking migrant quotas to EU Funding. When will Merkel face reality?
Kurz argued that the main focus of the EU should be to strengthen the external borders to stop illegal migration, rather than attempting to manage migration by redistributing migrants once they enter.
“I’m convinced that the solution to the migrant problem lies with decent border protection and stronger help in countries of origin,” Kurz said.
Kurz’s stance is similar to the Visegrad nations, which have totally rejected the European Union’s migrant quota scheme and attempts to force the V4 to embrace the multicult lifestyle of many in Western Europe.
Meanwhile, the Eurocrats in Brussels remain “out of touch” with the people of Central Europe, who have no desire for migration diktats from the EU.
European Parliament President Antonio Tajani has agreed with Merkel’s proposal, saying: “If you do not want to follow the rules, you have to pay something.” Rules? Does Tajani mean the Dublin rules which Germany ignored or the failure of Italy and Greece to secure the external borders? Surely, “waving through” unknown, aggressive male migrants from violent cultures to others is not an act of solidarity.
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker raised concerns over the growing ideological split between the West EU bloc and the central-eastern European nation states.
“I do not want a new split in Europe, we have enough of that,” he said. Juncker may want to ask himself who caused this split? What has Visegrad tried to force on Western Europe?
It was Angela Merkel who lured the migrants with her “We Can Do It” pep rally that proclaimed Germany’s greatness. The people of Visegrad do not vote in German elections, nor can they be held responsible for the actions of the government in Berlin.
“EU Solidarity” on migration is a pure myth invented by Germany for their own agenda. There was never any “European Solidarity” for Open-borders, mass migration or UN-style multicult.
The tide has shifted in Europe as more nation states question the legitimacy of Merkel and the bureaucrats in Brussels. Many are starting to realize the damage they caused with their reckless decisions.
Is Italy about to provide another dose of reality to Berlin and Paris? Stay tuned.
