EU Wants to Make It Easier to Deport Migrants, Commissioner Claims

Peter Caddle, Breitbart, January 4, 2023

The EU aims to increase its ability to deport illegal migrants, the bloc’s Home Affairs commissioner has claimed amid a growing wave of illegal immigration into the bloc.

Ylva Johansson, the EU’s Commissioner for Home Affairs, has claimed that the union is looking to increase cooperation with third-party nations in the hopes of making it easier to deport foreign migrants illegally residing within the union.

It comes at a time when illegal and uncontrolled migration into the EU is on the upswing, with there being over 275,000 illegal border crossings into the bloc recorded last year

To make matters worse, according to a report by Die Welt, many European nations are very reluctant to actually deport migrants within their borders, even when they have no right to reside there, with only around 23.3 per cent of migrants without a right to stay in the union being deported from the bloc in 2022.

{snip} Johansson is reportedly optimistic that the EU will be able to better handle the crisis in the coming year, with the bigwig promising partnerships with African nations in order to make deportations easier.


This would reportedly involve making legal immigration into the bloc easier, though it remains unclear whether more nationalist-leaning nations, such as Hungary and Italy, will agree to such a move.
