Refugee Nightmare 2.0 — the EU’s 2nd Migration Tsunami Has Begun

2 posts in this topic

The migration tsunami that swamped Europe with 1.5 million “refugees” in 2015 is roaring back with a tidal wave that may be double the size of last year’s deluge. In fact, most citizens of the European Union countries appear to be unaware that their unelected and unaccountable rulers at the European Commission, in their own European Economic Forecast  report issued last fall, announced precisely that. That is, they projected (with apparent acceptance and approval) that three million refugees/migrants would arrive in Europe in 2016.

The warming spring/summer weather along the Mediterranean now means calmer seas are returning, which means many of the hundreds of thousands of migrants encamped along Africa’s northern coast, particularly in Jordan and war-wracked Libya, will soon be headed to Greece and Italy on boats.

According to a recent report for Spiegel International Online, website of the German daily Der Spiegel, the double whammy projected by the EU Commission is already starting out to be, actually, a triple or quadruple whammy, in terms of magnitude in comparison to 2015. “Europe continues to focus primarily on the war refugees coming from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan,” notes Der Spiegelcorrespondent Walter Mayr. "But it is often forgotten that increasing numbers of people from countries south of the Sahara are trying to head north as well. In 2015 alone, according to the European Union border control agency Frontex, 108,000 Africans made their way illegally to Europe. That represents an increase of 42 percent over 2014 — and experts believe the total is but a harbinger of what Europe may soon be facing.”

“In March alone, Italy registered 9,676 refugee arrivals — four times more than in March 2015,” wrote Mayr. “Even more alarming, refugees from Syria and Afghanistan — groups that have been most affected by the closure of the Balkan Route — haven't yet returned to the path across the central Mediterranean,” Der Spiegel reports. “Currently, the migrants arriving in Italy mostly come from Nigeria, Gambia, Senegal and Guinea, despite the fact that their asylum applications are likely to be rejected, as is the case for most of those coming from Africa. Less than 30 percent of asylum applicants from Nigeria or Mali, for example, can expect to have their asylum applications approved in the EU.”

However, being rejected doesn’t necessarily mean being ejected; many whose application for asylum status is rejected manage to slip away into the EU’s migrant underground while their cases are being considered. Relocating them can be an impossible task.

New Tactic for “Cheap Ticket” to EU: Send Distress Call, be Rescued

The human smugglers who are bringing the migrants to Europe have struck on an ingenious tactic that allows them to transfer much of the risk and cost of their smuggling operations to the backs of the EU taxpayers. Der Spiegel explains 

Intelligence agencies are warning that hundreds of thousands of people are now waiting in North Africa for their chance to flee across the sea. Particularly from Libya, the dream of Europe looks closer than ever before: The often inadequately equipped boats put to sea by the migrant smugglers must only leave Libyan territorial waters 12 nautical miles from shore before sending out a distress call. Ships patrolling the waters of the southern Mediterranean as part of the EU operation Sophia must then collect them in accordance with international maritime law. Since September, some 13,000 migrants have been brought to EU territory as a result of this tactic.

Either fight off your leadership or get out. Those are the choices now.

Yep, how much more of this can they take without resorting to violence?
The protest in Germany today looks peaceful to me yet they're called extremists.
