Greece Fails to Return Migrants to Turkey as EU Deal Stipulates

* The EU-Turkey deal has returned just 4% of migrants who arrived in Greece. The far-left leaders of Greece are failing to return “all non-Syrian” irregulars to Turkey as required by the deal.

The deal Angela Merkel sold to Europe was this:

1. All “irregular non-Syrians” entering Greece after March 20, 2016 would be sent back to Turkey with “no exchange”.

2. For every “Syrian refugee” sent back to Turkey from Greece, one “Syrian” in a Turkish camp would be sent to an EU member state for relocation. The so-called “one-for-one” exchange.

One of the reasons the EU is sending Turkey obscene sums of money is to take back all the migrants. However, since the deal, Greece has merely held almost all of the arriving migrants on islands. Instead of being sent back to Turkey, the illegal migrants are roaming into countries such as Serbia – where they seek internal smugglers to take them north.

The results. 45,972 migrants have entered Greece via Turkey, but just 1,896 migrants have been returned to Turkey, according to a recent report by the EU. In other words, just 4% of the migrants who crossed over to Greece since the deal have been returned. The ratio is 24:1.

The report notes that “returns from the Greek islands to Turkey remain much lower than the number of arrivals.” Since September, the EU resettled 8,834 “Syrians” from Turkey. Under the original “one-for-one” exchange, this meant that 8,834 Syrian refugees were to be sent to Turkey. Obviously, this did not happen. Very few Syrians who entered Greece since the deal have been sent back to Turkey. Among those returned? 888 non-Syrians.

The point is clear: The EU is not fulfilling its duties under the deal and has failed to send back “all irregulars” and the appropriate amount of Syrians to Turkey.

The EU Supreme Court recently ruled that Syrian refugees unwilling to return to Turkey could be sent back by force. Unfortunately, we have no faith in the leaders of Greece to follow through. Instead, they will again promote “burden sharing” (i.e., migrant quotas).

The Visegrad and Central European states are realists and know the history of Greece regarding border security. Embracing EU solidarity on migration would guarantee unlimited migrants and endless relocation quotas.

Instead of foolishly relying on the leaders of Brussels or Greece, Viktor Orban and the Central European Defence Cooperation (CEDC) took matters into their own hands by securing the Balkan route (the migrant pipeline from Greece to Germany) with the help of Macedonia.

Well-before Merkel decided to get involved, the Balkan route was secured by the various nation states. It may contain a few cracks, but it has worked brilliantly at cutting the migrant demand for Greece and protecting all Europeans.

The decision to close the Balkan route, which was initially opposed by Merkel, was the key to reducing the migrant flow to Central Europe. Visegrad must continue to expand and strengthen this effort.

Onward V4! Stay strong and united.

The EU-Turkey deal returned just 4% of migrants who undertook the dangerous journey to Greece

* Brussels/Open Society: EU Commission meeting between Frans Timmermans and George Soros in Brussels reveals the radical ideology behind so-called “EU values”

According to the Brussels Times, this meeting was designed to send a message to Hungary 🇭🇺, but we believe it is unprofessional, inappropriate and will further alienate mainstream Europe from the extreme multicult beliefs of the EU Commissioners.

But at least it provides a clear picture of why Timmermans and other EU Ministers, such as Vera Jourova, have decided to attack both Hungary and Poland. George Soros and the Open Society network are now the “centers of influence” in Brussels.

** Asked by a journalist about the purpose of the meeting, the chief spokesperson replied that Timmermans and Soros have known each other for many years.

“They’ll discuss broader issues of relevance to the EU, such as how to keep EU Member States together....Closer and always together,” he explained.

This resulted in a follow-up question from another journalist: “Are you sure that Soros wants the EU to stick together?” To which the spokesperson simply replied that he does not speak for Soros but for the Commission and Timmermans.

The Brussels Times contacted Frans Timmermans directly to receive his comment on a question which could have been asked by the Hungarian government itself.

Timmermans confirmed that he has been regularly in touch with George Soros and the Open Society Foundations over the last 20 years.

“I have seen firsthand in many different places what his commitment and his contributions have done to help countries rid themselves of their totalitarian, communist past and develop societies based on the same values that were enjoyed by those of us who were lucky enough to be on the right side of the Iron Curtain after WW2 or had the good fortune to liberate themselves from dictatorship earlier,” Timmermans replied.

“Given his and my experience with these issues, it seems to me absolutely logical that we would remain in touch regularly and compare notes about the situation in Europe and beyond.” The socialist from the Netherlands calls himself an expert on freedom. Sure thing, Frans. 🙄👌

“There is no doubt in my mind that his commitment to freedom, democracy and the development of open societies with equal rights for all citizens is genuine and honest,” he said.

Timmermans feels strongly about this commitment. ”It is a commitment I have shared throughout my professional life and a commitment I will stick to until I draw my final breath.”

*** Frans Timmermans has revealed his loyalties and cannot be expected to provide independent and impartial judgement regarding the European nation states.

Visegrad and others should demand his immediate resignation. Timmermans is a multicult activist and should be working for Open Society, instead of undermining Europe.

* Germany 🇪🇺🇩🇪 to accept 10,000 migrants from North Africa and the Middle East. The scheme designed at the Malta Summit is now implemented.

EU Commissioner for Refugees Dimitris Avramopoulos said Germany would be accepting more than 10,000 migrants from North Africa and the Middle East. He added that the EU Commission had received a commitment from Berlin this week, confirming that Germany would play an important role in the EU's “latest” resettlement program.

"The German government is once again there when it comes to international solidarity," Avramopoulos said in Thursday editions of newspapers in the Funke Media Group.

We see Avramopoulos has moved beyond EU solidarity. Now it’s “international solidarity”.

** In February of 2017, the V4 Report predicted this would be the result from the Malta Summit. It is now a reality. Some countries are now providing “safe-legal pathways” for migrants to enter Europe via direct transfers from Turkey and Africa. v4report.com/index.php/2017/02/06/merkel-euco-deception-malta-summit/

Working with the United Nations, the EU aims to provide a legal, direct and safe route to Europe for migrants. At least 50,000 migrants from “crisis areas” are to be brought into the EU by 2019. Other member states, like Slovenia 🇸🇮, have already agreed to resettle 40,000 migrants, meaning that the program's goal has been achieved, and may even be exceeded. The resettlement initiatives could be endless.

The EU will be supporting host countries by providing €500 million ($620 million) in funding for the program. In reality, it’s not the EU’s money.

Meanwhile, the EU Commission has urged Germany to end border controls as soon as possible. Avramopoulos told the Funke Media Group that he would not agree to such controls "forever." So Avramopoulos will decide this internal issue for Germany?

German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer recently informed the EU Commission that controls on Germany's border to Austria would be extended for another six months, although systematic controls on flights from Greece would be discontinued.

Avramopoulos welcomed the decision taken by the German authorities to stop systematic border controls at German airports for passengers arriving from Greece.

One does not have to be a scientist to realize what this means.
