* The Visegrad Report will be posting some recent articles from the past that we think are important to repeat. Some of our readers are new and may be seeing these for the first time.
** The article below regarding the 5,000 “missing migrants” in Finland was posted on July 10th, 2017. In this post, we warned of the dangers of open borders, roaming migrants and the failure to deport those who were denied asylum. We called it a “recipe for disaster”.
On August 19th, one of these “failed asylum seekers” who was not deported or detained committed a terrorist attack in Finland. Yet, many in Europe, most notably Germany, have not learned from past mistakes.
Illegal migrants must not be allowed to “roam” Europe indefinitely. As we have seen, the risks are just too great. Meaningful and swift deportations of those who do not belong in Europe, not relocation quotas, must be the focus of any solution to this crisis.
Europe must begin to “rise from their knees”.
