It’s strange that these countries don’t want their well-educated academics back. Those who are “welcome” at and do not want to have them in their own country again. I wonder why?

According to SPD leader Sigmar Gabriel, the grand coalition in Germany has settled the week-long dispute over Asylum Package II. “The asylum package II is now available and can go into the cabinet very quickly,” said Gabriel on Thursday evening in Berlin after consultations with Chancellor and CDU leader Angela Merkel and the CSU party chairman Horst Seehofer.

Accordingly, family reunification for refugees who enjoy lower subsidiary protection is to be suspended for two years. That was a demand especially from the CSU, which the SPD had initially rejected.

In return, however, it has now been agreed that “with the contingents of refugees from Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon that are now to be negotiated, priority will be given to family reunification,” said Gabriel. “And also for those in need of subsidiary protection.” That was a “good compromise,” added the SPD leader.

Merkel, Gabriel and Seehofer also agreed to declare Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia safe countries of origin. This should enable people from these countries to be deported more quickly. The grand coalition is reacting to the events of New Year’s Eve in Cologne. There, groups of men had committed sexual assaults on women and theft on a massive scale. The perpetrators are said to be predominantly migrants from the North African and Arab countries.

Furthermore, according to Gabriel’s words, the coalition partners agreed to ease the situation for trainees and training companies.123 search The point is that a refugee trained in Germany has the security of being able to work in Germany for two years after completing his training, regardless of his status, said the SPD leader.

+++ The other current developments in the refugee crisis +++

EU defends Sweden’s decision

The EU Commission has defended Sweden’s planned repatriation of up to 80,000 rejected asylum seekers. A spokeswoman said deportations are part of the four-pillar migration agenda. “It is one of the obligations of the member states that people without a right to asylum must be returned”.

The relevant decisions in the legal area would have to be made by the national courts. Furthermore, “we have actually seen a number of migrants coming to Europe who were not entitled to asylum”. That number has increased. It is also a matter of credibility and “we do not want to give the impression that Europe is an open door,” said the spokeswoman.

Sweden plans to deport up to 80,000 rejected asylum seekers. The government had instructed the police and the immigration authorities to implement this order, Interior Minister Anders Ygeman told Swedish TV station SVT on Wednesday evening.

Normally, rejected asylum seekers would be deported on scheduled flights, but given the high number, charter planes would now be rented. This will presumably take several years. Last year 163,000 refugees applied for asylum in Sweden. Of the almost 60,000 applications that the Swedish authorities processed in 2015, 55 percent of the applicants received asylum.

For comparison: in Austria around 90,000 people applied for asylum in 2015. In the first instance, almost 14,000 of the more than 36,000 decided applications were rated positively.

Sweden had reintroduced border controls in November because of the refugee crisis, and since January all train and bus companies have also had to record the identities of passengers traveling across the Öresund Bridge from Denmark to Sweden. According to government figures, around a hundred refugees have been arriving every day since then; in October it was almost 10,000 a week.

The newspaper “Dagens Industri” quoted Ygeman: “I believe that it is definitely about 60,000 people, but it can also be up to 80,000.” “We have a big challenge ahead of us,” added Ygeman. “To do this, we need to increase resources and improve cooperation between the authorities.” First of all, they want to create good conditions for the voluntary return of asylum seekers. “But if we fail to do that, there has to be a forced return,” he said.

According to the government, there is “a significant risk” that large groups will disappear underground. The police are preparing for this with the expansion of the border police and more foreigners controls in the country. “I think we will see more charter planes, mostly EU-run,” said Ygeman. According to “Dagens Industri”, the Swedish government is negotiating with Afghanistan and Morocco, among others, about the return of refugees from these countries.

Mikl-Leitner and Doskozil promise cooperation

Interior Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner (ÖVP) and the new Defense Minister Hans Peter Doskozil (SPÖ) held an initial working meeting on Thursday. In front of journalists, they then vowed to ensure good cooperation. The first task is to prepare the reinforced border management in the next few weeks, says Mikl-Leitner.

The goal: “To pull together for stability, security and order in this republic”, said the minister. Doskozil thanked the interior department for the friendly welcome. It is now a matter of planning, coordinating and implementing measures after the asylum summit. They want to show the flag “that it is no longer possible to enter uncontrolled”. Chief of Staff Othmar Commenda and General Director for Public Security, Konrad Kogler, also attended the meeting.

Regarding the question of an extension of the military service, Mikl-Leitner referred to the fundamental need for long-term endurance in border management. It was now up to the General Staff to examine this possibility. Doskozil announced an internal departmental exam for next Monday at 2 p.m. in which this and other topics should be discussed.

The interior minister was also asked about Sweden’s planned deportation of 80,000 rejected asylum seekers. This is planned for the next ten years, a dimension that Austria is already providing with over 8,000 people displaced in 2015. In any case, pushbacks would remain a focus.

British want to take in more minors

According to a media report, Britain wants to take in more unaccompanied minors from Syria and other conflict areas. However, the government has not announced the magnitude of this, the BBC reported on Thursday. The Interior Ministry, together with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, will determine “particularly sensitive cases” from refugee camps in Syria and neighboring countries.

Britain plans to accept 20,000 Syrians by 2020; so far, London has accepted 1,000 refugees from the civil war country. However, Prime Minister David Cameron has recently come under pressure not only from the opposition but also from within himself to do more.

Wiener Neos and FPÖ match each other with hotlines

The Viennese FPÖ has been causing discussion on the Internet for days with its “anti-Islamism hotline”. Deputy Mayor Johann Gudenus invites concerned citizens to contact the free number 0800 556666. The Neos are now countering with an “anti-agitation hotline”, as the town hall club boss Beate Meinl-Reisinger announced via Facebook.

She can be reached on 0800 400666 and also free of charge. “Johann Gudenus’ anti-Islam hotline – also communicated in his role as Vice Mayor – is still pouring fuel on the fire. It is irresponsible to heat up the mood even further in times of the asylum crisis. His campaign does not solve any of the problems in Vienna” , writes Meinl-Reisinger on her Facebook page. Incidentally, the pink hotline posting is optically based on the FPÖ requirements.

Give the Greeks a few billion to control the Schengen borders. They will already know how you can then squander the billions. Merkel Co are so poor that they don’t see through the game of this southern mafia. You can be so happy that you have an army of full posts in Europe that you choose again and again.

Greece, meanwhile a third world country, which leaves its own population starving and deteriorating, has no right to give away the remaining resources to third parties. For the criminal refugees arriving in Greece, this is a clear case of “bad luck”. Now have to look for another country where there is something for free.

Our politicians, first they are against it and open the borders, now everything is being done to get rid of the people again. It’s sick, you knew beforehand that it would never go well. Germany certainly has a few 100,000 men but no women, it is not for nothing that nature looks at 50:50, and the politicians presume to play God here.

Now the Swedes, who have been taking the SPÖ as a role model for decades, have finally released 80,000 for deportation by a government resolution. You can wait a long time with our constantly smiling Faymann until only 80 asylum seekers who have been rejected are also deported.

Largely unnoticed by the global public, a humanitarian catastrophe is believed to be taking place in the Sahara and the Sahel zone. According to the German Development Ministry and well-known experts, the refugee crisis has led to a boom in organized crime in North Africa and Turkey, which is believed to have killed far more refugees and migrants than previously known.

“According to conservative estimates, over a million people have died in the Sahara,” says the German State Secretary for Development Thomas Silberhorn, but adds that it is very difficult to verify such figures. “But we can safely assume that many more people died on the way through the Sahara than in the Mediterranean.”

“Given the remote region, we believe that many deaths in the Sahara go undetected,” said Daniel Szabo, spokesman for the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Geneva. The IOM considers the number of one million to be greatly inflated.

There is hardly any reliable information about the situation in the Sahara and the Sahel zone, and Western media are also virtually absent there. According to reports from African refugees in Europe, many migrants are apparently abandoned by human traffickers in the desert and die of thirst, while others may die in fighting by rival gangs and militias.

Alarming picture of the situation

A study published in December by the South African Institute for Security Studies (ISS) in Pretoria, South Africa and the Geneva-based Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime, an international network of experts against organized crime, paints an alarming picture of the situation. The authors Tuesday Reitano and Peter Tinti assume after talks with government officials, officials, military, secret service agents and refugees around the Mediterranean that the crisis has led to a boom in organized crime.
