Migration by the European Union
“There is an ideal world in the EU – and a real world. The ideal world consists of EU law which sets exceptionally noble rules in absolute terms all over the world. He says: A migrant sets foot on land that cannot be returned to the EU. It must be returned. Allow him to apply for asylum in Europe. Only if the application is rejected can he be returned.”
– Klaus Geiger wrote in Welt magazine about immigration.
“In the real world, however, there is a problem: a person who entered the European Union once would do anything – human beings – to stay there, even if there was no chance of asylum. Therefore, EU law has turned out to be an Achilles heel. For years , European countries have tried to circumvent this law. Through temporary constructions, ethical principles must be included with specific solutions”
– The author added.
And the daily Welt reminds you of it “Fences were erected in many places on the outer borders (…). Where there was a sea border and it was impossible to build a wall, refugee agreements were made. With Turkey, Libya, Morocco or even Niger. Money is paid to countries across borders to curb migrants.
Has the European Union learned nothing?
“The European Commission and many German politicians still allow themselves the luxury of living in an ideal world, as well as in the case of the Polish-Belarusian immigration crisis,” Geiger emphasizes. The European Union accuses “Poland of violating the law by sending migrants across the border to Belarus. It criticizes the government in Warsaw for building a border wall with Belarus.”

Has the European Union learned nothing? Wonders Magazine. In 2015 when “Vladimir Putin bombed Syria and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan sent Syrian refugees, the European Union led by Angela Merkel let things go on their own.” As a result, the German state “lost control”, the “anti-European forces throughout Europe” increased in strength, and the United Kingdom left the European Union.
“Now Poland has taken the defense of its eastern border into its own hands. Would it be more humane to do nothing – while allowing people to become pawns in the game of a treacherous dictator? The EU must understand that Poland is doing it a favor because it is behaving realistically.”
Klaus Geiger said.
