EU solidarity should focus on forming alliances to boost deportations outside of Europe.
This is the missing link; even rejected asylum seekers rarely are deported outside of Europe.
Brussels, Italy and Greece need to end any talk or scheme of “burden sharing” or migrant quotas; this is counterproductive, poisonous and only divides Europe.
Instead, the nation states must start working together to relocate the migrants back to their countries of origin. Nobody wants these aggressive male migrants from alien cultures; they simply do not belong in Europe.
Instead of shuffling Afghans or Pakistanis from one European state to another, states must works together to deport the illegals back to countries of origin.
A mix of travel restrictions (on government officials) and suspending all foreign aid should be placed on countries which refuse to take back its own citizens (very easy to find out a migrant’s home country, even without papers).
– Greece Migration Minister Notis Mitarakis met with his Austrian counterpart and suggested alliances with other European countries who either have better ties with migrants’ countries of origin or who might be able to help organize the returns.
This is a good idea. Mitarakis will find plenty of other states – especially V4 nations – to help Greece with deportations, detention and deterrence; however, the Greek government will continue to receive major pushback regarding “relocation”. This will not happen.
* The key are migrant exports out of Europe, not the internal trade of migrants within Europe.
