Gee, why stop at 40 000?
There are tens of millions of them wanting to reach Europe’s golden doors of welfare and privilege, what these jackasses are actually saying is, the ones with the golden tickets get to be spread around Europe, the ones not able to make the trek north, or west, well, you’re best placed where you are.
NOTE: It’s complete cognitive dissonance but that’s where we are in this age of gross mediocrity and overt leftism.
EU ministers at odds on relocating 40,000 migrants
By NIKOLAJ NIELSEN
Member states remain at odds on sharing asylum seekers from Italy and Greece, but have agreed to resettle over 20,000 refugees.
The plan, proposed earlier by the European Commission, would see up to 40,000 asylum seekers from Italy and Greece redistributed to other member states over a two-year period. Another 20,000 refugees would also be resettled.
EU interior ministers in Luxembourg on Thursday (9 July) agreed to delay taking a final decision.
“We are not very far from the target, but some countries need time to negotiate, time to adjust, and that’s why today we prefer to defer until the 20 July”, Luxembourg minister Jean Asselborn told reporters.
Relocation refers to migrants arriving in the EU to claim asylum, either by crossing the Mediterranean Sea by boat from Libya or by going to Bulgaria and Greece by foot from Turkey.
