Croatia border police defend borders, sent over 7,000 illegals back to Bosnia in 2020
A Bosnian cantonal minister asked why his own country had not done something similar by returning the illegals to Serbia and Montenegro?
That’s a good question. The chain deportations work for Italy, Slovenia, and Croatia, and no doubt would produce a domino effect southwards if Bosnia pushed-back as well. Serbia and Montenegro would be forced to take action as well.
We do not like the increasing presence of Frontex units in the Balkans for this very reason. Clearly, they are there to monitor the actions of national border guards.
The problem stems from the original entry point from Turkey to Greece. If Greece had no outlet, surely the government would be inspired to deny entries (the EU is an obstacle here) while being forced to focus on deportations out of Europe, instead of waving through the illegals to others (transfers to the mainland).
I am sure Hungary and others would be willing to help Greece with this process and the logistics regarding detainment and deportations.
Of course, the Council of Europe’s Commissioner for Human Rights, Dunja Mijatovic, reported her concerns to the European Court of Human Rights on January 11 about the forcible return of illegals to Bosnia from Croatia.
Why? Chain deportations work, which is why the COE and EU Commission are attacking those who put their nation’s security and survival first.
It is not possible for the EU to solve this crisis; they do not want to solve it. The nation-states will have to do it themselves by closing borders.
“Close your borders and we will then have to take care of our borders”…or suffer the consequences.
