Skyrocketing costs for returning EU migrants

The EU is spending millions forcibly sending people back to their home countries with one case costing up to €90,000 per head.

A scam as old as the hills: Government pays unions, who in turn vote for the government.

    A group of passengers could face hefty fines after delaying a Vueling flight in Barcelona out of sympathy with a Senegalese migrant on board.

    The Senegalese man, in handcuffs, was eventually deported to Dakar on the flight. The jet took off after police had come on board to stop the protest.
    The 11 protesters could be fined up to €225,000 (£197,000; $258,000) each for endangering flight safety.

    Spanish media report that the Barcelona-Dakar flight was delayed by two-and-a-half hours at El Prat airport on Saturday, after all the passengers had been ordered off the plane. When they boarded again, 11 passengers – identified by police as protesters – were not allowed through.

    Witnesses quoted by Spanish media said the sympathy protest started on the plane when the Senegalese man, escorted by two border guards, complained loudly about being deported.

    Since the EU is spending other people’s money, cost is no object to them.

    Imagine how much they would save if they just prevented them entry in the first place.

    The EU has proven not to be too bright in the past.
    Now they are reinforcing that reputation.
