Germany Halting Immigration Of Asylum Seekers From Other European Countries Italy & Greece

Germany will no longer be accepting relocated asylum seekers from Italy and Greece, reports Die Welt citing the German Interior Ministry.


The decision, announced Monday, ends Germany’s participation in an EU relocation agreement launched in the wake of the 2015 migrant crisis. The agreement officially expired on September 26, 2017, and saw Germany take in over one-third of the total refugees distributed under the plan.


“There are now virtually no more asylum seekers in Greece who could be considered for resettlement,” according to the Ministry. To qualify, applicants had to be from a country where the chances of asylum are at least 75 percent.


Last month, some 500 migrants were still waiting to be relocated from Italy to Germany, while in Greece the number less than 40.


“The relocation scheme ended in September 2017, meaning all applicants arriving after that date will no longer be eligible for resettlement,” Annegret Korff, a speaker for the Interior Ministry, said.


“Germany largely completed all outstanding relocations by the end of 2017. In the coming weeks, Germany will only carry out the odd resettlement case that was left outstanding from last year.” -DW.com


Based on the massive number immigrants arriving in Germany alone during the height of the migrant crisis – some 1.3 million in 2015 with 890,000 entering Germany, EU member states initially agreed to collectively take in some 160,000 refugees from Greece and Italy.


That number, however, was revised down to 100,000 after officials realized that fewer people were eligible than originally thought. In total, only 33,000 migrants actually took part in the transfer program – with Germany taking in 10,265.


Migration also fell sharply following the 2015 peak, with just 280,000 migrants arriving in Germany in 2016, and 186,644 asylum seekers last year.


Last October, Angela Merkel’s CDU and Bavarian CSU sister party agreed to cap Germany’s intake of asylum seekers at 200,000 per year.


“We want to achieve a total number of people taken in for humanitarian reasons (refugees and asylum seekers, those entitled to subsidiary protection, family members, relocation and resettlement minus deportations and voluntary departures of future refugees) that does not exceed 200,000 people a year”.


And in December, 2017 Germany offered rejected asylum-seekers a one-time payment of $3,500 to go home, valid through the end of February.


“If you decide by the end of February for a voluntary return, you will get in addition to first aid, a housing aid for the first twelve months in your country of origin,” Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere told newspaper Bild am Sonntag.


That said, relocation schemes or not – refugees will continue to pour into Europe from Africa this summer. It is unclear how the EU intends on dealing with future waves of migrants, while a standout coalition of EU members refuse to take in migrants whatsoever.


Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov – whose country currently heads the EU as part of a six-month rotating EU presidency, said that the current asylum rules “literally split Europe.”


German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere hinted Berlin was willing to drop its insistence on quotas in order to make progress on asylum policy reform, saying “We will decide on this at the end of the negotiations.”


After meeting in Sofia, Bulgaria last Thursday to discuss asylum policy, EU Interior Ministers set a deadline of June to develop a solution.


What is the current situation? (via DW.com)


Current EU migration rules state that asylum requests must be processed in the country where asylum was first requested.


This has put a heavy burden on Greece and Italy, the two major entry points to Europe.
Proposed changes to the rules would create a permanent mechanism for all EU member states to admit refugees in the event of a new emergency.


The June deadline has been put in place because warm weather during this time tends to increase migrant flows across the Mediterranean.


Hungary and its eastern European neighbors, including Poland, have refused to take in refugees since the European Commission pushed through temporary refugee quotas in 2015.
Slovakia and the Czech Republic have also been reluctant to accept migrants from other EU countries, citing security concerns.


As the Greek and Italian relocation program draws to a close, and migrant-heavy EU nations such as Sweden, Germany, France suffering from increased crime rates vs. their non-refugee accepting EU counterparts, one has to wonder how much worse this crisis borne of regime change and perpetual war is actually going to become before the financial and civil consequences of a “borderless” Europe result in all out civil war.

Nick Fuentes’ America First Populism Will Win

Published

on

In an era where the political landscape is dominated by establishment figures and grifters, Nick Fuentes emerges as a refreshing and unapologetic voice for America First populism. While many on the right pay lip service to putting America’s interests first, Fuentes is one of the few who consistently advocates for policies that prioritize the needs of the American people over the interests of foreign nations, particularly Israel.

Fuentes has been a vocal critic of the pro-Israel lobby’s influence on the Republican Party, arguing that it has led to a foreign policy that is often at odds with the interests of the American people. He has called out politicians who claim to be America First but support policies that benefit Israel at the expense of the United States, such as the massive aid package that the U.S. provides to Israel each year.

While some may dismiss Fuentes as a fringe figure, his message resonates with a growing number of Americans who are tired of the establishment’s empty promises and are looking for a leader who will truly put America’s interests first. Fuentes’ America First movement represents a rejection of the globalist agenda that has dominated both parties for decades and a return to a foreign policy that puts the needs of the American people above all else.

Fuentes’ uncompromising stance on Israel has earned him the ire of the pro-Israel establishment, but it has also won him the respect of many on the right who are tired of seeing their leaders kowtow to the demands of a foreign nation. As the America First movement continues to gain momentum, Fuentes’ message is likely to become increasingly mainstream, forcing the Republican Party to confront the issue of Israel’s influence on its foreign policy.

In the end, it is clear that Nick Fuentes represents the future of the America First movement, and his brand of populism is likely to win out over the grifters and establishment figures who surround Trump. While Trump may know where the real energy is, it is Fuentes who is leading the charge for a foreign policy that truly puts America’s interests first.

Trump would be wise to embrace Fuentes’ brand of America First populism, as it would likely result in even better results and increased popularity for his administration.

Preserving America’s Social Fabric: Zero Immigration and European Resurgence

Published

on

In the heart of the American Dream lies a nation built by immigrants, a melting pot of cultures and traditions. But as we stand at the crossroads of history, it is time to reevaluate our immigration policies and embrace a new vision for the future of our great nation.

For too long, we have allowed our borders to be overrun by those who do not share our values, who do not understand the importance of the American way of life. Our social fabric is being torn apart by the influx of people from cultures that are fundamentally at odds with our own.

It is time for a change. It is time for a new approach to immigration, one that puts the interests of the American people first. And there is no better leader to guide us through this transformation than President Donald J. Trump.

President Trump has always been a champion of the American people, a defender of our way of life. He understands that the key to preserving our social fabric is to promote a resurgence of the European population within our borders.

By implementing policies that encourage the growth of the European population, we can ensure that our nation remains true to its roots, true to the values that have made it the greatest country in the world.

There are many ways to achieve this goal. We can provide incentives for European immigrants to come to America, offering them a path to citizenship and a chance to contribute to our society. We can also invest in programs that promote the growth of the European population within our borders, providing support for families and encouraging them to have more children.

But perhaps the most important step we can take is to put an end to the current immigration system, which allows anyone and everyone to enter our country without regard for the impact on our society. We must embrace a zero-immigration policy, one that prioritizes the needs of the American people over the desires of those who seek to take advantage of our generosity.

By taking these steps, we can ensure that America remains a beacon of hope and freedom for generations to come. We can preserve the social fabric of our nation, the very essence of what makes us great. And we can do it with the leadership of President Donald J. Trump, a man who understands the importance of putting America first.

So let us stand together, united in our resolve to protect our way of life. Let us embrace a new vision for the future of our great nation, one that puts the interests of the American people above all else. For in the end, it is only through unity and determination that we can truly make America great again.

Paul Ryan Committed Treason Against President Trump

Published

on

In a shocking revelation, it has come to light that former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan was in possession of the infamous Steele Dossier long before it was made public. This bombshell information was uncovered by none other than former Trump official Kash Patel, who shared the details on Steve Bannon’s show, The War Room.

According to Patel, Paul Ryan had a copy of the Steele Dossier in his possession as early as 2016, while he was still serving as Speaker of the House. What makes this revelation even more damning is the fact that Ryan never disclosed this information to his Republican colleagues or to President Trump himself. Instead, he chose to keep it hidden, allowing the false narrative of Russian collusion to fester and grow.

This act of betrayal by Paul Ryan is nothing short of treasonous. By withholding vital information from the President and his team, Ryan actively contributed to the spread of lies and misinformation about Trump and his administration. This not only undermined the President’s ability to govern effectively, but it also eroded the trust of the American people in their elected officials.

The implications of Ryan’s actions are far-reaching and deeply disturbing. If a high-ranking member of the Republican Party can so easily betray the President and the American people, what does that say about the state of our democracy? It is clear that we must hold those in positions of power accountable for their actions, regardless of their political affiliation.

As we approach the 2024 election, it is more important than ever that we elect leaders who are committed to upholding the principles of truth, transparency, and accountability. Once President Trump is re-elected, he must act swiftly to make an example out of those who have betrayed the American people. Paul Ryan must face charges of treason for his actions, and justice must be served. Only then can we begin to heal the wounds inflicted upon our nation by those who sought to undermine our democracy for their own gain.
