EU great deception on future ‘returns’ which have not materialized in any meaningful way for five years.
Remember that cargo vessel Marina that was forced to load 79 illegals off the coast of Malta on May 3rd? Well, on May 10th, it unloaded the migrants to the island of Sicily.
‘Returns’ have been used as bait by Angela Merkel’s EPP Party and others for years as cover for the various EU relocation schemes, often pushed by EPP members of Greece and Malta.
But the over-rated, German-based party has never produced any meaningful results regarding deportations OUTSIDE of Europe (not the EU or to easy targets like Albania), despite being the majority party in the EU during the migrant crisis and producing the last two EU Presidents (Juncker and Merkel….sorry von der Leyen 😉).
The major issue with the EPP is that they refuse to work with the cente-right or national conservatives like the PiS of Poland, VOX, Meloni, etc that actually want to stop illegal migration. Instead, they form alliances with radical Socialists, Guy Verhofstadt federalist groupies and far-left Green zealots while attacking and blackballing Matteo Salvini.
The EPP has been a big part of the problem for the last five years; they are not the solution
for the future.
* Until other EU states demand deportation before relocation, this game will never end.
