Now EU Plans to Bribe Countries with Their Own Money to Take Boat Migrants

Donna Rachel Edmunds, Breitbart, May 28, 2015

The European Commission has announced plans to bribe member states with their own money in a bid to cajole them into accepting migrants from across Africa and the Middle East. The scheme has already attracted widespread criticism not only for economic reasons, but due to the opportunities it presents terrorists wanting to enter Europe.

The commission wants to see 60,000 migrants, 20,000 of whom have not yet even reached the EU, relocated across the member states. To that end, it has promised to pay the countries £4,250 for each person they accept, costing European taxpayers a grand total of £35.5 million, the Daily Mail has reported.

So far Britain has managed to negotiate an opt-out from taking a portion of the 40,000 migrants, the majority from Syria and Eritrea, currently stranded in Italy and Greece having successfully crossed the Mediterranean. But the government is still under pressure from the Commission to accept some of the 20,000 migrants from non-EU countries that it wishes to disperse across the bloc under a quota system.

A British Government spokesman said: “We do not oppose resettlement in principle, but we believe such schemes are best decided at national level and have no plans to contribute to an EU quota.”

Yet the EU has already issued a press release showing that the UK is in line to take 2,309 people in from outside the EU over the next two years under “resettlement” plans. {snip}

The plans were being drawn up even as commission spokesman Natasha Bertaud told reporters that new migrant centres due to be built in African nations this year were first and foremost for the purpose of turning would be migrants around before they embarked on a perilous journey across the sea.

Ms Bertaud said the policy was about “building up capacity to take migrants back,” adding that “no remote processing” of asylum seekers would take place at the centres. However, she did admit that part of the centres’ work would be identifying those “in clear need of international protection, such as Syrians or Eritreans,” so that the UN could request that the EU take them in.

Germany, which backs the proposals, is set to take the largest number of people, relocating 8,763 from Italy and Greece, and a further 3,086 from outside of the EU. Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere welcomed the announcement saying: ‘You can negotiate the allocation. It won’t be easy but the way is right.”

France and Spain are both preparing to take in thousands, with 9,127 people destined for France, and a further 5,837 heading to Spain. {snip}

    The European Commission has announced plans to bribe member states with their own money in a bid to cajole them into accepting migrants from across Africa and the Middle East.

    Why? It would be much cheaper and more genetically advantageous to send these parasites back to wherever they came from and use the extra money to help needy Europeans.

    • propagandaoftruth

      They need to lower the IQ of Europe enough to assure the mewling, worshipful, gracious, neotenous, faith in governance and willingness to be socially experimented upon that Marxism-Progressivism requires.

      To destroy Western civilization.

      • LHathaway

        People of color might prefer to see Western civilization and all it’s trappings live on. What might not be left, is the White genome.

  • George Moriarty

    If the EU wants to be generous using other people’s money, that money would be much better spent by sending these illegals back to their country of origin. The simple reason is that a Pound, a Euro or a Dollar, even allowing for bribes, will go much further in providing aid in all these north African/ME countries than it ever will in suburban Europe. To complete the aid package, all those Europeans, especially professional people, who so much rejoice in diversity can simply go and help out in all of these North African and Middle East hell holes.

  • corvinus

    More Afro-Muslims. What could go wrong?

    • Usually Much Calmer

      Well, I bet the Greeks will be better off if the Germans take a bunch of ’em. Wait. . .

  • Red

    The EU is truly an evil entity. Not one single ‘boat person’ is in clear need of international protection. They need to destroy any ships or boats at their point of orgin before they’re loaded. Once loaded, they need to be turned back immediately. Video-tape any ships that sink and broadcast that back to Africa and the Middle East. Make it known what happens and it will stop.

    I remember when Gaddafi used to publicly demand money to stop the boats from coming. At one point he demanded $2 Billion to stop the boats and now the EU wants to pay its member states to accept these people? Outrageous! Too bad the West got rid of him. The tribute would have been well worth the cost.

  • SentryattheGate

    There are so many categories of “migrants” (probably to mislead people about the numbers). Re. Germany “relocating 8,763 from Italy and Greece, and a further 3,086 from outside of the EU”, they already are accepting over 220,000 “refugees” this year alone!!!! Or was it 400,000? That’s why PEGIDA was marching in the streets of Dresden and elsewhere!

    • Ella

      About migrant housing, German govt. relocates refugees to surrendered US Army barracks or housing in many suburbs. After the Wall, there was a population drop in former Eastern Germany leaving run-down housing in smaller cities so that these abandoned dwellings become new immigrant havens. It’s a mess much like our Sect 8 and HUD programs.

      • M.A

        Not just the former East. My youngest daughter was also a “former”. A former liberal that is, Until she spent 2 years teaching mostly immigrant children in Kiel.

        She fled back down South as quickly as she could, ranting and raving about the impossibility of teaching these idiots. .Being a loving father, I tried my hardest not to smirk too much. It was not easy.

        • Ella

          At least, she accepted the truth rather than making excuses for minorities for 25 plus years like my brother. Distastefully, he’s a libtard who voted for Obummer.

          • M.A

            You are quite correct. I was surprised myself at how quickly her deeply held principles capitulated to reality. Not so deeply held after all, it would seem.

  • Jason Lewis

    4,250 euros would go farther in Ethiopia or Uganda. Send em there with the money.

    • John Smith

      They could live a decade on that there.

    • DonReynolds

      No…..the same individuals would make the boat trip AGAIN to get more money.
      Do not make this financially rewarding. Make it seem terribly stupid.

    • Dr. Rieux

      Western money would be better spent providing poor countries with vasectomies and tubal ligations, instead of feeding them and allowing them to continue to irresponsibly breed.

  • james AZ

    European Commission work to destory slow and prepare for new world order , try make Europe become like Brazil , become brown people will become best serve to new world order because their IQ will be LOWEST than before……..May be in 2080 …..

  • MekongDelta69

    Economics, terrorists, ‘diversity,’ a thousand other reasons.

    But they never mention the MAIN reason – the elimination of White countries and Whites in general.

    • Ella

      Having our white privilege, we will be more easily identified to be targeted and pecked off among crowds.

  • Bossman

    From what I can see from the news, a lot of these boat “migrants” are black males from Somalia. Somalia is no longer a country of the Third World; it has now become a Fourth World country where violence and chaos reign supreme.

    • Jason Lewis

      Somalia is Detroit without tax dollars from outside going in.

      • John Smith

        Not as many tax dollars, but I’m sure white tax dollars are going in there too.

      • dd121

        Well, piracy is a form of taxation to the rest of us.

    • DonReynolds

      Quarantine Somalia. Use military if necessary and do not let anyone leave the place until they solve their own problems.

  • Hilis Hatki

    No doubt it will be mostly males brought to Europe…. things that make you go hmmm.

  • John Smith

    $6500 isn’t even going to remotely cut it. Politicians are usually bad at math. They really ought to just offer 30 pieces of silver for each terrorist parasite.

    • Dr. Rieux

      Spot on. Do they really imagine people are so stupid that they won’t recognize that all that diversity will cost them a whole hell of a lot more than $6500?

  • LeonNJ

    I really do hope Britain leaves the EU. Some British youtuber said how there were already trade agreements with mainland Europe so things wouldn’t be too different if they left. Plus, they give a large chunk of money each year to the EU elites and they’re nice enough to give a little back to the British. Gee thanks!

  • dd121

    Here in the USA, isn’t coercing the States with their own money how the States became enslaved by the federal government?

    • IstvanIN

      That is how they get state governments to go along with programs that are not within the federal government’s constitutional role.

    • Alden

      Exactly

  • DonReynolds

    Better plan……take the money from the EU.
    Use a very small fraction of it to transport the migrants back to their own country.
    Use the balance to deal with domestic problems.

  • InitialSegment

    In other news, Jean Raspail’s novel “The Camp of the Saints” is now available for the Kindle in English translation.

  • De Doc

    So money taken from Europeans will be used to resettle ingrate and often hostile illegals among these same Europeans, who then will be forced to pay for them in the long term. Is it me or is there something wrong with this formula?

    • IstvanIN

      Just as they do here in the US. Take money from White tax payers, give it to refugee importers to bring the “needy” here, then give some back to the states to fund the “Refugee Resettlement Program”, the welfare program for new arivals, along with SNAP, Medicaid, HEAP, etc.

  • Harry Schneider

    Idiotic EU, Nigel Farage & UKIP are right !

  • sam sneed

    Six thousand bucks isn’t even close. Try 500,000.

  • Dr. Rieux

    Agreed. Peacefully or no, the EU needs to go.

  • mobilebay

    Why at this time in history is the world playing musical chairs? Financial aid flows into the third world, yet without the overseeing who is governing these countries, the funds might as well be tossed in the ocean. Teach these countries how to exist without being dependent and how to elect good people and this “migration” to developed nations might end. How about a resurgence of the Peace Corp? The fianance aid could go to teaching the various skills needed to become self-sufficient. It’s certainly worth a try.

    • watling

      Without whitey and his skills, expertise, money and compassion, sub-Saharan Africa would soon revert to the Stone Age. Africans could still be self-sufficient, but a lot of them would die off first while the continent reached a more sustainable population for the available resources. This would be good news for endangered species such as the elephant and the rhino – as long as the Chinese kept out too.

    • Alden

      They can’t learn I think the Portoguese were in Angola almost 500 years and it fell apart
      within a few years same with all the former colonies

  • Rosenmops

    The EU would be better to pay £4,250 per person to non-native Europeans willing to leave and never come back.

  • Alden

    Supposedly the Italian mafia is doing the smuggling
