Germany Wants Migrants Sent Back to Greece


In an interview with a Greek daily, German Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière said he wants to reinstate EU rules which oblige asylum seekers to be sent back to Greece as the first EU country they reached.

“I would like the Dublin convention to be applied again… we will take up discussions on this in a meeting with (EU) interior ministers” later in October, he told the Greek daily Kathimerini.

The Dublin accord gives responsibility for asylum seekers’ application to the first country they reach – which put Greece on the frontline of more than a million migrants who arrived in the EU last year.

    Why not send them to live near anywhere people like Peter Sutherland, George Soros, un-elected EU and UN officials have residencies? Pack ’em in there!!

    This clown is trotted out (by Mad Merkel to blow smoke?) from time to time to spout his nonsense about “laws and regulations”.

    Merkel has already let the genie out of the bottle. Where has he been all this time?

    Perhaps he thinks that EU member states that don’t want to help Germany by taking migrants off their hands will be willing to help Greece.

    That will never work, if you had stood up to the problem a couple years ago and solved it it would have never gotten out of hand. I bet only 5 to 10 percent of the immigrants you have gotten are the ones who want a better life for themselves and will integrate in the host country, the rest are invaders.

    EVERYBODY wants them sent somewhere else .
    When Muslim don’t want them— there has to be a reason.

    Too funny. The only reason Greece didn’t bother too much was that thy made the assumtion that they were going to move on to richer pickings and wouldn’t be a long term problem for Greece. They are not going to want Germany sending them back.
