Greece: 4,000 illegals have been transferred to other EU countries.
To date, 13 countries, including Germany, France, Portugal, Finland, Belgium, Ireland, Norway, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Luxembourg have all taken in those who have been relocated — though most people were relocated to the Greek mainland.
Recently, the EPP government in Greece has proclaimed (without giving specifics) that it has had more departures from the islands than arrivals this year.
They conveniently forgot to say that the overwhelming amount of illegals were not deported out of Europe but to other EU states or to even the mainlands in Greece (where they then journey to the Balkans).
On the other hand, give the Greek government credit for taking necessary action (pushbacks to Turkey) to decrease arrivals, despite the criticism of the NGO agitators. Hopefully, this continues and the EU keeps its nose out of Greek affairs at the border.
But UN/EU relocations are not a solution, but a highly counterproductive measure to lure more illegals to Europe. It sends a message loud and clear to just get to the EU.
The spin is thick in the EU.
