Bosnia Herzegovina, whether they realize it or not, has ‘unofficially’ been designated as one of the EU’s “migrant processing” centers in Europe. This is where the “experiment” begins.
How else would one describe this operation? The illegal migrants are not being deported and they will not all stay in BiH.
Defend Croatia says of the 20,000 illegal migrants who arrived in BiH this year, only 2.5% are children
The EU is sending money to be managed by its partners such as UNHCR and the International Organization for Migration (IOM). The goal is to help manage the situation to create conditions for “re-opening” the border crossing Maljevac, where the migrants want to transfer to Croatia as soon as possible and continue on the way to Western Europe.
We see no indications that the EU is doing anything to stop this. Instead of helping to seal the borders in Greece, the EU is attempting to manage the flow. This, of course, is futile.
We have translated the article below to illustrate how the foundations are being established for the EU “processing centers” in BiH.
– The Minister for Human Rights and Refugees has confirmed that 8.2 million EUROS has so far been approved for dealing with the migrant crisis in BiH from IPA funds of the European Union, and this money is to be managed by partners such as UNHCR and the International Organization for Migration (IOM)
The Council of Ministers of BiH has taken on the role of identifying the future needs of migrants, and one of the goals is to equally distribute the burden of the migrant crisis to all parts of the country.
“My message is that migrants in the Una-Sana County are not only a problem of that county, but the whole country,” said BiH Minister of Human Rights and Refugees BIH Semih Borovac.
There are “nine centers” for the accommodation of migrants throughout BiH, and Borovac claims that there are places for them and those who have been staying for days on the border crossing Maljevac.
The County Government in Bihac announced on Tuesday that two hundred migrants will be transferred to one of the appropriate accommodation centers by the end of the day or at least on Wednesday, thus creating conditions for re-opening the border crossing Maljevac.
* How long will this be confined to BiH before the EU and others start calling for another round of relocations to other European nation states? When will this problem for the “whole country” (BiH) be transformed into a problem for Europe?
While this is a problem for Europe, it is not one that can be solved with EU-UN schemes to relocate the migrants across Europe.
Unfortunately, we believe the EU, working with the UN, is creating the mechanisms and structures in BiH to do just that. In other words, instead of stopping illegal migration, the EU wants to commit Europe to endless migration.
The “unofficial” migrant processing centers in BiH are just the start. Before long, the UN could be all over Europe.
