V4 Report: Migrants arriving at camps in Europe ask for “wi-fi passwords” before inquiring about food, water and basic sanitation. A migrant must be able to text their “internal smuggler” or “benefits agent”.
Look behind the scenes and one will find companies and organizations that profit from illegal migration.
Obviously, there is big money behind mass migration, which enables a well-organized smuggling network to thrive in Europe. It is vast and it involves open-border activists, corporations, organized crime, NGOs and internal European smugglers. We have documented the abuse in the past, but the leaders of Western Europe remain “on their knees”. Not only do the UN and others tolerate human smuggling, but they actively encourage it.
“The first thing a refugee asks for upon arrival at a camp is not water or food but the wi-fi password,” said Kann Terzioglou, chief executive of Turkcell, the mobile phone provider, at the World Economic Forum in Davos. “We need to use what the digital technologies have offered in an effort to find effective solutions to the refugee crisis.”
Of course, Kann is pimping his products in Davos. Technology is a good thing and we encourage it to be used for noble purposes. However, encouraging illegal migration and smuggling with the help of any technology is not a solution; it is a crime. We believe digital technology could be very useful to help with the logistics of deportation and to reunite migrants with their families in their countries of origin.
Apparently, the self-appointed “elite” have lost all sanity and common sense. Many cannot see beyond their vanity and are blinded by delusions of grandeur. Often they pontificate about useless theories and remain “out of touch” with reality. Sometimes it’s quite embarrassing.
According to The Times, special focus was given to Europe’s lingering migrant crisis at the Davos Forum this year. Trying to determine who is the “most humanitarian” of all, the forum offered to enlighten its guests by offering influential and wealthy participants a simulated 75-minute experience of being at the mercy of hard-handed authorities, without food, safety and shelter.
Imagine that; but they still had their IPhones and wi-fi” connections.
In 2016 a United Nations study showed that migrants in Tanzania were at times willing to give up ten days of food to buy a month’s worth of data instead. (More than likely, this study was either manipulated by the UN or a “telecom executive” looking for the government to use more tax dollars to buy his company’s products.)
A protest by illegal migrants in Greece was “suspended temporarily” to allow in telecoms technicians in to repair the wi-fi network. What drama.
The bottom line: the migrants are using technology to communicate with “aid agencies” and smugglers to illegally enter the EU or to reach their destination of choice, often the state that provides the richest benefits and least resistance towards their aggressive behavior.
The only solution is to deport the migrants outside of Europe. About 62,000 migrants remain stranded in Greece and more than four million remain in Turkey…..for now. No doubt, many are using this technology to attempt to enter the rich EU.
About half of them are registered with Turkcell.
