Austria warns of “large-scale” movements of illegals from Turkey.
Austrian interior minister Herbert Kickl has written to the European Union (good luck with that 😏🙄) calling for immediate preventative measures to be taken.
The letter, published by the Krone newspaper, was specifically addressed at three European Commissioners — Dimitris Avramopoulos of migration, Johannes Hahn of neighborhood policy, and Guenther Oettinger of budget and human resources.
Kickl said figures from European Union law enforcement agency Europol suggested that a “large-scale movement of people from Turkey to Europe” is about to take place, with both the eastern Mediterranean and Balkans migration routes likely to be traversed as they were during the migrant crisis in 2015 and 2016.
