* Poland ??: Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki says his government won’t accept migrants from North Africa or the Middle East – despite mandatory EU quotas.
** Despite mandatory EU quotas? Do they think Poland will “submit” like Sweden? This is not how things work in Visegrad. Poland will decide these internal security matters, not some radical liberals from the ALDE Party or EU Parliament in Brussels.
According to Euronews, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki says his government won’t meet the EU’s mandatory quotas set to help take the burden off Italy and Greece.
“We are invariably of the opinion, formulated by Law and Justice ahead of the elections of 2015, that we will not be receiving migrants from the Middle East and Northern Africa in Poland,” Morawiecki said during an interview with Radio Poland.
That doesn’t mean the country isn’t pulling its weight, Morawieski said.
“On the Eastern borders of the European Union we contribute a lot to lowering tensions since we have already received tens of thousands and maybe even hundreds of thousands of refugees from Ukraine – but we don’t give them asylum status.”
*** The leaders of Brussels, Italy and Greece cannot force their “open-border” manifesto on others in Europe. There was never any European solidarity for mass migration, open-borders or UN-style multicult. This is simply a myth.
Unfortunately, Visegrad cannot force the leaders of Italy or Greece to deport the illegal migrants. They have chosen “the burden”.
Likewise, Poland and Visegrad will decide who comes and who stays in their nations. Why should their security and migration policies be determined by the socialist ideology of Alex Tsipras or Paolo Gentiloni?
Onward V4! Keep up the fight.
