The criminal activity involved in the flow of fake refugees into Europe has been documented here at the Tundra Tabloids, in a few ground breaking reports (here, here and here). It’s all arranged by sunni and Shiite gangs, through well staked out routes, funneling these people into Europe. In Russia it’s the state itself that’s in on the take.
‘Enormous business’: Criminal refugee smuggling bigger than guns & drugs – Czech defense minister
“The size of criminal business involving the transport of illegal migrants to Europe is enormous, it exceeds the turnover from the sale of drugs and weapons, making – without exaggeration – [by] billions of dollars,” said Martin Stropnicky.
The EU border agency Frontex estimates that people-smuggling networks made more than €4 billion ($4.45bn) from their criminal activities last year, with the biggest piece of the pie stemming from smuggling migrants. That profit is further used to support the illicit drugs and weapons trade.
As over 1.83 million people made it into the European Union in 2015, according to Frontex, Stropnicky expressed doubts about Turkey’s and Greece’s ability to halt or at least deal with the bursting numbers of migrants.
He said that recent statics show that illegal migrant crossings are reaching 5,000 people a day, and this is before the start of the summer season when the waters of the Mediterranean get warmer. More than 870,000 migrants arrived on the Greek islands in 2015 using the so-called Eastern Mediterranean route alone.
