Afghan sisters deported from Austria after landmark EU ruling

This is a very big and important decision when it comes to illegal economic migration into Europe. It is not Europe’s responsibility to take in people with fundamentally different cultures, religious beliefs and ethical values who are simply seeking a better life than in their home countries. There is a mistaken belief that it is Europe’s responsibility to grant citizenship to such individuals.

Two Afghan sisters who lost a landmark asylum case at the European Union’s top court have been deported from Austria, aid agencies say.

Khadija and Zainab Jafari and their three young children arrived in Austria in 2016, but were not granted asylum.

The authorities decided they should be sent back to Croatia because it was their point of entry to the EU.

The sisters challenged this at the European Court of Justice [ECJ], but it ruled in favour of the authorities.

Under the so-called Dublin regulation, refugees typically have to seek asylum in the first EU state they reach.

EU migrant crisis: Austria can deport asylum seekers, court says

The EU’s top court has ruled that a law requiring refugees to seek asylum in the first country they reach applies even in exceptional circumstances.

The case, brought by Austria and Slovenia, could affect the future of several hundred people who arrived during the migrant crisis of 2015-16.

The ruling concerns two Afghan families and a Syrian who applied for asylum after leaving Croatia.

The court says it is Croatia’s responsibility to decide their cases.

The crisis unfolded during the summer of 2015, as one million migrants and refugees travelled through the Western Balkans.

Under the so-called Dublin regulation, refugees typically have to seek asylum in the first EU state they reach. But Germany suspended the Dublin regulation for Syrian refugees, halting deportations to the countries they arrived in.

Eurosceptic Italy in race to form majority government / L’Italia euroscettica in corsa per formare il governo di maggioranza

The EU has shot itself in the foot. Owing to its pc liberal policies on open door migration it is steadily turning more and more European civilians against Brussels. Think back to before the migration crisis of 2015 and the EU was held in high regard by most people on living on the continent. However, all this changed when Angela Merkel allowed in 1 million Syrians into Germany and the NGOs, Greek and Italian navies started ferrying illegal, mostly Sub-Saharan, economic migrants from Libya to Europe. Now Europeans are fed up, have had enough and are going to the ballot box in record numbers to vote for anti-migrant, anti-EU parties.

Wake up Brussels – change your migration policies and the European project will start to be supported again.

Five Star Movement and the League vie to form a coalition, but ultimate decision is held by President Sergio Mattarella

The two populist parties that won major upsets in the Italian election – the Five Star Movement (M5S) and the League (La Liga) – are in a race to be the first to try to form a majority government after the election produced a hung parliament.

The decision will ultimately fall to Italy’s president, Sergio Mattarella, who could take weeks to determine whether the anti-establishment M5S, which took 32.6% of the vote, or a fragile centre-right alliance led by the League’s bombastic Matteo Salvini, with 35.7% of the vote, are better equipped to create a majority government.

As Italy and Europe digested the news on Monday that a majority of Italian voters had supported Eurosceptic candidates in the national election, both sides began jockeying for position, saying each had earned the right to lead. The Italian constitution gives Mattarella the power to give the mandate to any party, regardless of who has won the most votes.

Italians aren’t fascists. They’re angry about immigration


Italians aren’t fascists. They’re angry about immigration

The right-wing coalition might win the election but it’s a far cry from Nazi salutes and Mussolini

Amid relentless propaganda about Italy being in the grip of fascism, Italians go to the polls on Sunday. It will be an attempt to produce their first elected prime minister since 2008, when Silvio Berlusconi won. Since his resignation in 2011, Italy has had four unelected leaders.

Italy’s migrant crisis has dominated these elections, especially after the discovery of the chopped-up remains of an 18-year-old Italian girl in two suitcases by the side of a road in the picturesque hilltop city of Macerata in Le Marche. Three Nigerian migrants are in custody for the murder. And in revenge, a 28-year-old fascist lunatic drove around Macerata opening fire on black people at random, wounding six (none fatally). He then gave himself up to police.

Hungarian PM Viktor Orban lashes out at Europe’s migration policies during visit to Bulgaria

He sees himself as a saviour of Europe’s Christian nations. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has used a visit to Bulgaria to once again lash out at the EU’s migration policies.

His words come in the run-up to his country’s April elections.

“We think migration is dangerous to public security, to our welfare and to the European Christian culture,” said Orban.

‘Migrants are more profitable than drugs’: how the mafia infiltrated Italy’s asylum system

Joy, a young Nigerian woman, was standing in the street outside the sprawling, overcrowded Cara di Mineo reception centre for asylum seekers in central Sicily, waiting for someone to pick her up when I met her. It was late summer 2016, and the weather was still hot. She said she was 18, but looked much younger. She was wearing a faded denim jacket over a crisp white T-shirt and tight jeans, and six or seven strings of colourful beads were wrapped around her neck. A gold chain hung from her left wrist, a gift from her mother.

As we spoke, a dark car came into view and she took a couple of steps away from me to make sure whoever was driving saw her, and saw that she was alone. There were a handful of other migrants loitering along the road. The approaching car didn’t slow down, so Joy came back over to me and carried on our conversation.

The oldest of six children, Joy (not her real name) told me she had left her family in a small village in Edo state in Nigeria at the age of 15, and gone to work for a wealthy woman who owned a beauty salon in Benin City. She had since come to suspect that her parents had sold her to raise money for their younger children. “They probably had no choice,” she said as she looked down the road toward the thick citrus groves that hid the coming traffic.
