The entire European relocation plan for refugees is failing. This is reflected in shocking numbers reported in a resolution approved by a majority in the European Parliament on 18th May. The Strasbourg delegates condemn the behaviour of the member countries that, despite having agreed to the transfer of 160,000 refugees from Greece and Italy by September 2017, have accepted the transfer of only 11% of this number (18,770 people as of 11th May). A figure that is even more scandalous if we consider the relocation of unaccompanied minors. The European countries have accepted “only one unaccompanied minor to date”, reported the delegates in writing. Only Finland and Malta have respected the undertaking. The majority of the other member countries are still far off. Some more than others. Hungary and Slovakia have rejected relocation entirely, whilst Austria, Poland and the Czech Republic are amongst those doing the least.

A Read More.

  • Zuckerberg frightens Trump and the anti-immigrant hawks

    Complicating Trump’s life, as if the many troubles he has were not enough, the question of immigration reappears and not for the first time. Today is the expiration date for the ultimatum launched by the conservative governors of many states for the cancellation, promised and promised again in the electoral Read More.

  • Point to Tunisia to convince the rebel NGOs

    There is a missing piece in the effective strategy put in place by Italy's Interior Minister to create order out of the Mediterranean chaos.  And, which would be useful to counter the objections of the NGOs who have not signed the code of conduct because they are opposed to rejecting Read More.

  • Sweden cracks down on refugees falsely claiming to be minors

    Sweden’s strong stance against refugees who pretended to be minors in order to get free social services has paid off. The new method of verifying the age of asylum-seekers, introduced at the beginning of 2017, based on dental s-rays (of wisdom teeth) together with MRIs of the knee joint, successfully Read More.
