EU plan to relocate 160,000 refugees from Italy and Greece by September failing despite record deaths at sea

The EU’s plan to resettle up to 160,000 refugees from Italy and Greece throughout member states is failing amid waning political will to help those risking their lives to reach Europe.

Dimitris Avramopoulos, the European Commissioner for migration, said some countries have failed to relocate a single person “in breach of their obligations” as legal action is considered.

      Timely choice, but I couldn’t stand that song when it came out. And I doubt it improved with age.

      Don’t give the fuckwit any ideas.

    they will fail, they have no Political with a spine left,
    a amorph Merkel, a odipuss complexed Macron…

    They’re not refugees, they’re economic migrants. Repatriate them this nonsense will stop.

      More like colonizers.

      So much of the western “aid” to Africa has gone towards creating a
      population explosion on that continent to the point where they now are
      demanding to colonize our countries who fund them.

        Yes. Good points.

        You got it at “colonizers” but it’s more the hijrah, “emigrating” in the model of Big Mo … as a Muslim to expand Islam.

    Does Europe need more welfare moochers with bad attitudes (e.g. jihad conquest, misogyny)? Remember Africa has a population of over a billion.

    How is that a sustainable — or even non-insane — public policy?

    Must be nice to be able to afford an iPhone as in the pic above. None of these so-called refugees are ever dressed in rags either.

    • Ottawa Eyes

      I have to disagree with you on that one.

      I see refugees in rags in Toronto all the time begging for money before they are picked up for the day in BMWs and Mercedes Benzs.

        Really? I can tell you that I see a lot of “newcomers” to Canada driving nice SUVs, etc. at the Superstore parking lot where I shop. A friend told me that many of them walk into the car dealership where he works and plunk down cash for their vehicles. Another friend said at the mosque she attends, Afghani women are showing up in expensive designer duds, purses, shoes, lots of gold. She said she looks like someone who just got off a refugee boat in comparison.
        How are they bringing their money into the country (other than walking across the border with it)?

  • Poland and the Czech Republic are probably breathing a sigh of relief right now.

    Goodness, how can there possibly be “waning political will to help those risking their lives to reach Europe” so once they land they can enhance “diversity” (rape, pillage and murder, according to their culture and customary excuses for evil)?

    It must have been the case that prior to Islam’s embedding into our nations, we really were lacking in rape, pillage and murder.
