Migrant arrivals by sea have also increased, turning tiny Cyprus into the EU’s top recipient of asylum-seekers per capita.
We are sure Recep Erdogan and Turkey are thrilled with the UN Migration Compact. Erdogan is always looking for more ways to ‘shake-down’ euros from a gullible EU. We see his games in Cyprus and elsewhere.
Even Turkish airlines has become a partner of the UN Compact. Direct flights anyone?
– Government statistics show that about 5,000 illegals – mostly from Syria, Somalia, Pakistan, India, Iraq, Bangladesh, Vietnam and Cameroon – had claimed asylum in Cyprus by the end of August. That’s expected to reach 8,000 by year’s end.
The EU head office in Brussels told the AP its European Asylum Support office is deploying 29 case workers plus interpreters to help Cyprus clear the backlog, and has given Cyprus almost 40 million euros for migration management in the 2014-2020 period.
The EU is helping to clear the backlog? Since the migrants are not being deported outside of Europe, where will this ‘backlog’ of migrants be cleared to?
The EU is sending ‘case workers’ not border agents (not that Frontex would be of any help securing the border). One sees the ‘management’ objective of Brussels.
One migrant named Saleh said the crossing was ‘easy’: Two soldiers manning a Turkish Cypriot guard post checked the driver’s ID, then waved the van through to the buffer zone that divides the northern part of the Mediterranean island from the internationally recognized Republic of Cyprus, a European Union member.

As a result, they will keep coming.
This is where Europe stands today and things are not changing. Like it or not, Visegrád and the Three Seas region will have to start asking themselves some serious questions regarding their future and the EU.
Is it possible to preserve one’s culture, identity and way of life under the same umbrella as Guy Verhofstadt and the multicult Eurocrats of Brussels?
