Europe needs a “coalition of the unwilling” to fight for a new EU migration policy built around denying entry and sending the migrants back to their own countries.
The V4 Report is somewhat disappointed that other EU states have not publicly and directly challenged a small group of states, led by France and Germany, which are now directly facilitating illegal trafficking by taking-in the NGO migrant transfers.
This behavior is reckless, counterproductive and sets a dangerous precedent that will only encourage more illegal migration.
While we have our issues regarding Austria’s Sebastian Kurz (please see our two posts from Sunday), he is at least speaking out against this scheme led by Macron.
Kurz dubbed the common refugee policy a failure, adding that all Mediterranean migrants should be sent back to their home countries.
“The distribution of migrants in Europe has failed,” Kurz said. “We are once again discussing ideas from 2015 that have long proved impractical.”
* Is Kurz serious? We will find out this fall based on his selection of a government partner. If he realigns himself with the FPO, there is optimism; however, if he chooses Greens, NEOS (Verhofstadt-types) or Socialists, then his words cannot be taken seriously.
Regardless, there must be others to challenge and counter France, Germany and its minions in such places as Portugal, Ireland, Romania, Spain and Luxembourg. The illegal immigrants do not belong in Europe and the EU must cease supporting illegal migration. The migrants must be denied entry and sent back to Africa immediately.
We know this and so do others, but so far no one seems willing, besides Salvini, to confront Germany and France by name.
This will have to change or their scheme to resettle NGO migrants will eventually expand and take on a life of its own. This is how Brussels works: they establish a precedent and then slowly build on it until it becomes the new normal.
A Kurz-FPO Coalition in Austria would add to the tensions between Kurz and Macron, plus it would provide another much-needed voice to counter the “resettlement” doctrine of Macron and Merkel.
Something is needed to change the debate.
