Greece’s border surrender and unwillingness to deport illegals outside of Europe create tensions along Croatian border.
This cannot go on, but there is no end in sight. Instead of focusing on a permanent mechanism to deport the illegals outside of Europe, France, Germany and Brussels are luring more illegals with relocation schemes. No deterrent exists; as a result, the smugglers and their illegal clients keep abusing Europe.
EU lack of real action speaks volumes: Brussels wants to commit the EU to mass migration.
– Croatian police fired on a group of illegal migrants trying to reach neighboring Slovenia late on Saturday, leaving one man critically injured, officials in the northern Adriatic town of Rijeka said.
“Police officers were preventing the passage of a group which most probably wanted to reach Slovenia,” Interior Minister Bozinovic told media late on Saturday, adding that one man was wounded probably due to the use of firearms.
Croatia has a duty to stop illegals from violating its territory and naturally sometimes this will involve some type of force. If not, this leaves Croatians or Slovenians at risk. We do not know the circumstances but if aggressive young males were trying to break into my house, there are instances where firearms would be needed to protect my family. The alternative is not an option.
We are surprised this does not happen more often, or that more action is not taken to deter the illegals, who are trying to force their way into places in which they do not belong.
The problem is not the Croatia police but the weak leaders who recklessly grant entry at the source. This coupled with the lack of mass deportations outside of Europe creates tensions for others, who are then forced to confront the illegals once they start roaming freely.
An example: “In the last two years about 60,000 migrants have passed through the camps in Una-Sana canton, which means that about 54,000 of them have ended up in EU countries. Those people came to Bosnia and Herzegovina with the intention of reaching EU countries. Croatia is justifiably dissatisfied, as are we … because our state institutions are not managing the migration process properly and we are dealing with the consequences together,” said minister of the interior of Una-Sana canton, Nermin Kljajić.
He then went on to say that Croatia should not be worried…but indeed, Croatia must be very concerned and vigilant. The forced pressure on Croatia forces it to act; they have no other choice. It’s called self-preservation.
* Things are starting to get ugly in Europe. This is a street fight, not a UN cartoon. If this crisis is not stopped (one cannot manage migration; this is a ludicrous EU slogan) using whatever means necessary, the situation will eventually explode into something far worse.
One cannot leave this task to Brussels to tackle. They are a big part of the problem and have proven that they cannot handle the task of defending Europe or its borders.
