EU Migrant Quotas Must Be Defied to Save Europe

EU Migrant Quotas Must Be Defied to Save Europe

Let’s be frank: The battle to determine the heart and soul of Europe is not some nonsense about solidarity or shared responsibilities.  Despite her talk, Angela Merkel will do little, if anything, to deny entry to migrants from the Middle East or Africa. She has had more than a year;  it’s not happening.  Deporting is virtually impossible thanks to the hordes of so-called human rights attorneys, home-grown internal smugglers, and open border activists (not to mention the attitude of many foreign countries who refuse to take back their citizen-migrants).  And while the flow has slowed somewhat, the mass migration continues, especially in Italy, and is still rapidly increasing. Net inflows still greatly dominate any tiny outflow by wide margins.

The EU is bitterly divided on the sustainability of current migration levels.  Some think if only the EU could be united in “solidarity”, the situation would be manageable; while others believe the only way to save Europe is by securing the borders and deporting the illegals.

This is the debate and it all comes down to forced refugee quotas.  This was Merkel’s plan from the beginning and it is her last and only stand now.  This will determine Europe’s destiny.

Merkel, EUCO, and various other Western European leaders are addicted to multiculturalism and Open Borders. They believe the values of the EU (which are not universal European values) obligate them to accept every migrant that seeks a better life; hence, they are focused on solutions such as “secure transfer routes”, harmonizing EU migration laws, and refugee quotas.  While Merkel and Sweden now realize that they cannot take every migrant, they do believe that all the states of Europe can.  They dismiss, believing it to be “xenophobic”, the concerns about the culture of Islam changing the way of life in Europe. Yet, despite its failure in every EU state with a large Muslim minority, multicult is something they embrace and believe in.  This is their theology.

To achieve this unlimited transfer of migrants to Europe, they need a permanent mechanism with force to resettle the migrants within all the EU states.  This is known as “migrant quotas”.  If this succeeds, others can forget about Italy or Greece securing the border.  Why would they, if they know the migrants will be headed elsewhere?  Forget about limits, this quota scheme would enshrine endless Muslim immigration for every EU state.

The V4 and others in Eastern Europe strongly disagree.  They did not open their borders to migrants and never saw the light of Muslim multiculturalism.  They believe it is their duty and natural right to protect their priceless culture and way of life. They also know that the quota scheme is a weak “cop-out” from taking the responsibility to secure the border from unknown migrants and jihadists from violent regions, who have no desire to assimilate.  Once the quotas start, they will never end.

The V4 nations also view the rejection of quotas as the only way to force Germany, Italy, and Greece to reconsider their “Open Entry-Wave By” border policies.  We have already seen the success of the Balkan closings on the inflow to Greece.  Closing that border road from Greece to Germany discouraged the migrants from entering Greece.  Austria and Switzerland could do the same with Italy; if the migrants realize they will be prevented from moving on, the demand will be curtailed.

More importantly would be the pressure exerted on these countries. Without others to send migrants to, Italy and Greece would be swamped with migrants.  Like Germany, their citizens would not tolerate this for long.  Without quotas for others, Merkel, Italy and Greece would have to rethink their insane open border surrender.  Eventually, they would be forced to deny entry.

One can ignore all the spin of an EU solution; it is not possible. Only a European solution led by nation states, based on sealing the external border with determination and strength, can save Europe from a Syrian-like cultural war that will forever change the continent.

The first battle in taking back Europe from the New World Order of the EU and UN is the unconditional defeat of Merkel’s refugee quotas. Game On V4, this is your “red line in the sand” and where you must make your stand!

* Germany 🇪🇺🇩🇪: Angela Merkel’s scheme to link EU money to migration quotas faces stiff opposition from not just Visegrad, but from others as well. Even Luxembourg 🇱🇺 is skeptical.

** Instead of rewarding countries that fight to reduce illegal migration by securing borders and implementing measures to rapidly deport the migrants outside of Europe, the leaders of Germany, Sweden and the Netherlands want to reward nations that take-in large amounts of migrants. This seems odd and counterproductive.

One can only imagine the bribes, kickbacks and corruption that would result from this fiasco, which would only encourage more incentives for the migrants to seek Europe, especially given Western Europe’s lack of will to deport.

- According to the Financial Times, Merkel’s proposal to link EU money to migration policy was roundly criticised by Berlin’s traditional budget allies in Austria and Luxembourg, as well as the EU’s newer members in Central Europe.

Berlin’s proposal to link parts of the large “cohesion funding” budget to measures on migrant relocation provoked a backlash.

The PM of Austria 🇦🇹, Sebastian Kurz, was direct and to the point explaining that the budget should bolster Europe’s external border controls rather than rewarding countries that host migrants. “Solidarity is much more than sheltering refugees,” Kurz said.

Dalia Grybauskaite, Lithuania’s 🇱🇹 president, said cohesion funding was for “better convergence, not for anything else”.

Xavier Bettel, Luxembourg’s premier, said the German plan risked stoking backlash from Europe. “If we link the funds to migration questions, then we’ll be punished afterwards — not by the governments but the people,” he said.

While the V4 Report often disagrees with the PM of Luxembourg, he is absolutely correct. If this measure is forced on Central Europe, the people will punish Brussels and the EU will likely break. This is unacceptable.

However, France is more receptive to the German plan, and is pushing for countries also to consider tying budget cash to a country’s labour market standards and its tax policy.

It’s tax policy? Why would the nation states allow Brussels or Paris to meddle in their tax policies? This is not only “anti-competitive” and ludicrous but represents another step towards federalization.

Clearly, there is no solidarity regarding migration and the issue is very divisive and bitter. The disconnect between the EU West and Central Europe is too deep to solve the migration crisis under the false slogan of “EU solidarity”.

Something will have to give or break.

- On a more positive note, leaders on Friday rejected automatically approving the candidates to emerge from the parliament elections next year. This was the system that brought Jean-Claude Juncker to power as European Commission president in 2013.

The so-called “lead candidate” or Spitzenkandidaten system ties the commission job to the result of the European Parliament elections. This has been criticised for giving too much power to MEPs to decide on one of the EU’s most influential posts.

The V4 Report agrees and would soundly recommend any measure that grants the European Parliament (EP) more power. In fact, we believe the EP must be marginalized and radically downsized. It is a circus.

*** Migration has exposed the flaws of the EU, which is more divided than ever. It has also severely discredited and weakened Merkel’s standing in Europe. She looks finished.

There will be plenty of battles on the horizon but the multicult EU Project seems to be self-destructing. The legacy of Angela Merkel, Matteo Renzi and the arrogant bureaucrats of Brussels will not be remembered well.

They have failed Europe. It’s time to move on.

You are so right. In fact, what I think they have done is they have destroyed the EU project. It is truly disintegrating. Falling apart. Merkel, Macron and Juncker's legacy will be as the ones who dismantled the union.

she said wir schaffen dass, maybe thought take the money from others...at least

Europe's leaders lost their mind. The time is soon for countries to decide whether they want to stay in the EU, or not.

Hi guys. Your quote from Bettel is not correct. What he said was that cutting funds will punish people and not governments. He never said anything about people punishing governments as you have interpreted his words. Merkel's idea too seems crazy only on the surface. What she actually means is securing EU funds for Germany's migrant infested regions.

She is intoxicated.

Somebody TAKE this woman OUT of there !! Cant stand her!!! She hates us, european people! She is of course working with Soros plan!! OUT OUt OUT||

She is not even Chanceler yet because she failed to form a coalition so far!!

Kdyby koalice zkrachovala a Makrel by musela nové volby !Toto si přeji a ne aby dále měla hlavní slovo tento novodobý Adolf a vládla dále - nadělala moc škody a ještě nám bude poroučet a škodit stačilo nechci!!!!

* Italy 🇮🇹: Video of growing tension in Pisa as March 4th election nears. Violent charges in the late afternoon as police block left-wing, anti-Salvini mob.

The police presence looks too light to us. There should be more to keep the streets safe. The Italian election is getting intense and will be one to watch.

Good luck to Matteo Salvini and Lega Nord
