Leaked documents have revealed the Council of the European Union is planning, as part of its migrant reduction strategy, a raft of new measures that will actually prompt a new wave of migration from the Middle East and North Africa, directly paid for by European tax payers. Britain currently pays £55 million a day into European Union (EU) coffers to pay for the plans made by foreign bureaucrats.
The document, produced by the “Presidency” of the Council, currently Luxembourg, sets out the plans to “endorse two documents… a political declaration and an action plan” at the meeting of the Valetta Summit in Malta in just under one month’s time.
Core parts of the document reveal that the summit delegates, key EU leaders, will discuss plans for “poverty reduction” for migrants, including “labour market/employment” opportunities, and by “creating job opportunities… in regions of origin and transit of migration”.
The document reveals that the group plans to use tax payer money to “enhance employment opportunities and revenue-generating activities in regions of origin and transit of migrants” with a view to “[providing] assistance to youth including education, vocational training, job creation, access to digital technologies…”.
The document makes it clear, in as clear as the language of European bureaucrats can be, that they foresee these measures as a way to curb illegal immigration and end human trafficking. One part of the document even claims that EU member states could “develop alternative income generation opportunities in countries where migrant smuggling and services for migrants in transit are important economic factors” – effectively claiming that tax payer money will be spent on creating jobs for criminals to lure them away from their trafficking activities.
Under a section entitled, “Investing in development” the document says EU member states should engage in “[promoting economic opportunities for displaced persons”. It goes on to admit that the EU should be “Promoting legal channels for migration and mobility from African countries… including training programmes for African entrepreneurs in EU countries”.
The recommendations also include the idea to “Double the number of scholarships for students and researchers” from Africa, despite many British and European students themselves struggling to afford higher education.
EU member states are to be asked to “pool offers for legal migration”, referred to as a “Common Agenda on Migration and Mobility”.
Perhaps far too late, the Council seems to have recognised the problem spot of Agadez in Niger. But what could be a sensible plan to enforce border controls and stop migrants, there, falls down with the plan for a creation of a “multi-purpose centre in Agadez (Niger) which aims at ensuring provision of direct assistance and information to migrants, registration of migrants”.
While the document makes some mention of “providing opportunities for safe and voluntary return and reintegration in cooperation with countries of origin”, this relies on the countries of origin themselves, many of which are less than likely to be co-operative.
It also makes reference to a plan to give “visas to nationals from countries that cooperate effectively in the implementation of the Action Plan” – suggesting that countries that comply with EU common migration policies will get special preference, regardless of whether the migrants are indeed skilled or needed in EU member countries. The visa system would work through “Simplifying entry and residence legal proceedings”.
Finally, the plan states that “Special attention should be paid to unaccompanied minors”, which, if combined with the document’s aforementioned increase of information for migrants on the subject of entering Europe, may see more children sent unattended into Europe – a phenomenon Breitbart London called “grappling hook kids“, which Sweden has seen an influx of in recent months.
UKIP Member of the European Parliament Mike Hookem commented on the report: “Far from dealing with migration, this document shows the EU can’t wait to welcome more people in.
“We’ve heard today from the Office for National Statistics that the number of people claiming jobseeker benefits has risen and wages are still being compressed by oversupply of labour. Yet our masters in the EU, who are no doubt delighted by the proclamations of left wing luvvies calling for ‘more to be done’ to help people who have voluntarily left their homes, can only think about spending more of our taxes on people who have contributed nothing to this country and are not refugees.”
