EU Europe Immigration


Just like in the states, the political cultural elite want to turn the nation state into a pick, choose and plunder, banana republic.

Illegal immigration to Europe shows sharp rise

European Union border agency says figures are on track to beat the 141,000 who fled the Arab Spring

The number of illegal migrants reaching Europe’s border has jumped sharply in the first four months of this year, suggesting this year’s total could be on track to overtake the 140,000 refugees who arrived during the 2011 Arab Spring, according to new figures.

Frontex, the European Union border agency, said 42,000 illegal immigrants reached the EU between January and April this year, a four-fold increase on the same period last year.
Additionally, Italian authorities have reported that so far during May a further 14,000 migrants have arrived in the country’s territory – through key central Mediterranean routes for illegal immigration – bringing the total so far this year to at least 55,000.
Patterns of illegal immigration over at least the last 20 years have demonstrated that unknown numbers will attempt to reach Britain by crossing the continent and using Calais as a staging post. Just last week, the French authorities demolished two squatter camps near the Channel.

The figures from Frontex raise serious questions about how the British authorities will deal with a potential surge in asylum claims and illegal entry, as immigration shapes up to be a key battleground in next year’s general election.
