Austria already feels blowback from first Afghan wave…will not relocate additional.
* Along with Germany, Austria bought into the ‘solidarity propaganda’ and made a huge and irreversible mistake in 2015; now it is a magnet for Afghans and has trouble even deporting criminals.
Kurz said that “there are still big problems with the integration and we are therefore against an additional inclusion.”
– His comments come as many EU countries naively rush to evacuate Afghans who worked with embassies and other so-called vulnerable Afghans, which could mean everyone.
Once the door is cracked open and support systems put into place, it becomes a magnet for others to flock to.
Kurz admitted Austria’s failed experiment of 2015 debacle: “We have taken in over 40,000 Afghans in Austria in the last few years and beyond. We are one of the countries with the largest Afghan community,” Kurz told Austrian broadcaster Puls24.
“The events in Afghanistan are dramatic, but we must not repeat the mistakes of 2015. The people from Afghanistan should be helped in neighbouring states”, Kurz tweeted.
** This is how it all starts…gradually. Then one day you wake up and it is too late to remove the deep roots already firmly established.
