Hungarian PM vows to resist EU's 'misguided' migrant policy | Reuters

Everyone in Europe slowly realizing that they were giving away their countries. Sweden originally said they'd take "everyone"... then having mass deportation of 10s of thousands. France has a crisis, Greece has a crisis, Italy... well, I have a friend looking to sell his Tuscan villa for 10 cents on the dollar that he paid for it because he can't guarantee security anymore.

The bottom line is that these people DO NOT ASSIMILATE into the country's culture. The United States has had the same problem with Somali refugees, etc. over the years. At some point, you have to start worrying about yourself and your country and not trying to save everybody.

Looks like Merkel is negotiating with Erdogan to be the EU's bouncer:

Quote:
LONDON — More and more, it seems that the European Union wants President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey to replace Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi as the guardian of European shores against the flow of migrants from the Middle East and North Africa.

It was Colonel Qaddafi, the former Libyan strongman, who, before Europe and the United States helped to overthrow him, had an agreement with Italy to keep migrants from its shores. In 2010, visiting Silvio Berlusconi, then the Italian prime minister, Colonel Qaddafi demanded 5 billion euros, then about $6.6 billion, a year to continue to stem the tide. Otherwise, he said, Europe would become “another Africa” as a result of the “advance of millions of immigrants.”

“Tomorrow,” he added, “Europe might no longer be European and even black, as there are millions who want to come in.”

Colonel Qaddafi got his money.

Now it is the European Union, prodded by a beleaguered Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany and overwhelmed by 1.3 million asylum seekers last year, that is desperate to deter as many migrants as possible.

Their instrument of necessity is Mr. Erdogan, who, like Colonel Qaddafi before him, has a price, and knows how to bargain. As Marta Dassu, the former Italian deputy foreign minister and senior director for Europe for the Aspen Institute, put it: “Erdogan keeps locking and unlocking the door as it pleases him.”

Already, the European Union has promised Mr. Erdogan €3 billion. This week, in a sweeping deal still to be confirmed by European leaders, the bloc promised him at least twice as much, along with the prospect of visa-free travel for Turks and an acceleration of Turkey’s application to join the union — a process begun nearly 30 years ago, in 1987.

In return, Turkey has agreed to take back every illegal migrant reaching the shores of Europe. That would have an immediate impact on the 2,000 a day now reaching Greece, but it is also meant to discourage others contemplating the trip. Turkey will keep the migrants while they are screened, adding to the more than 2.5 million already in Turkish camps, and return those who don’t qualify to their country of origin. For every Syrian migrant returned to Turkey, Europe must accept a Syrian migrant now in Turkey who qualifies as a refugee.

But there is another kind of price to be paid by the European Union, reminiscent of the deal done with Colonel Qaddafi. The main cost is to European values.

Even as European leaders met, the Turkish government seized the popular newspaper Zaman, which has been fiercely critical of Mr. Erdogan’s rule, and replaced its journalists with pro-regime hacks. Turkey has also continued to crack down on the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, which Ankara regards as a terrorist organization, under the pretext of fighting President Bashar al-Assad of Syria.

Since his re-election last year, according to Human Rights Watch, Mr. Erdogan “has demonstrated a growing intolerance of political opposition, public protest, and critical media. Government interference with the courts and prosecutors has undermined judicial independence and the rule of law.”

European officials argue that they had to act tough and create serious disincentives for migrants to ease the enormous pressure on Greece and the countries along the Balkan route.

Unless they acted, they say, the Schengen agreement on freedom of movement within most of the bloc, now effectively suspended, would collapse, with significant economic costs.

But it was Ms. Merkel, needing a deal to reduce political pressure on her from an unceasing flow of migrants, who orchestrated the arrangement. The agreement has been criticized by various rights groups and by some countries, including Hungary, and may yet fall apart at another European Union summit meeting next week.

Stefano Stefanini, a political consultant in Brussels and former Italian diplomat, said the European Union “had to get tough” on the migrant issue, for the sake of self-preservation. “It’s a deal with the devil,” he said, but, given the other serious problems affecting the bloc — including slow economic growth, the possibility of a British exit, Greece’s continuing economic weakness, Ukraine, the Libyan chaos and terrorism generally — “something serious had to be done, and quickly.”
