V4 Report: Brussels and EU Ministers at odds with the beliefs of mainstream Europe. Survey finds 78% of Europeans Want Tighter Control of Borders.
EU Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos, a few months ago, said the EU wants to “commit” Europe to mass migration.
Something will have to give. We think Avramopoulos, among others, must go. The V4 Report strongly believes the EU Ministers are dividing Europe, pushing the multicult manifesto of global philanthropists and cultural Marxists who seek to redesign Europe in their own image.
On the other hand, despite the EU’s unjust criticism of the V4 countries and other CEE nation states, a majority of EU citizens actually believe that these nations have handled the migration crisis better than Brussels. Only 24 percent believe that Brussels has done a better job than Central and Eastern European nations in handling the crisis.
How is that for a dose of reality! 🥊😵
** A massive poll covering all 28 European Union nation states has revealed an overwhelming concern over illegal immigration with more than three-quarters of EU citizens saying that Europe’s external borders should be better protected.
What is “most striking” about the survey, wrote the Spectator’s Douglas Murray on March 24, is that “there is such extraordinary unanimity around the question of immigration.”
– More citizens in every single European country say that it is a “serious problem” than say it is not a problem or not a very serious problem.
– Europeans also expressed anxiety over the prospect of Africans migrants arriving en masse into Europe over the next decade, with 68 percent of those surveyed saying they either “strongly fear” or “moderately fear” such a scenario.
– The rapid population growth of Muslims in Europe is another area of particular concern among Europeans, the survey found, with 70 percent of the people believing that a growing Muslim presence is a problem and a mere 8 percent saying it is no threat at all.
– The majority of Europeans across the board believe that the influx of immigrants into their respective countries will increase both the crime rate and the threat of terrorism. A majority of citizens (57 percent) said that the influx of immigrants will change the culture of their countries.
– The perception of migration has also changed, as a majority of Europeans are now convinced that most migrants are attracted to Europe by “pull factors” such as the EU’s economy and social benefits.
– Handling immigration, on the other hand, is also perceived as imposing a major economic burden on EU member states, with 73 percent of those interviewed saying that managing immigration will pose a “huge financial burden” on receiving countries. Only 17 percent believe that the cost of handling immigration with not be “huge.”
*** What happens when so-called EU “core values” clash with the values, beliefs and traditions of Europe? We may be about to find out.
Onward V4! 🔔🤛
