Immigration problem?

'If no practical solution is found, it will be the end of Europe as we know it'

Opinion

Opinion

by Yiannis Georgoulas

The biggest challenge that the European continent will face in the near future is immigration. Of course, it is not something new, since in recent years the migratory flows, legal or otherwise, were huge, but the countries of the south were the ones facing the problem.

The European continent has no room for more illegal immigrants and is heading straight for disintegration if this situation continues.

The European Union as a whole, led by the northern countries, swept the problem under the rug by distributing money to create structures that would solve the problem in its entirety.

Not only did it not solve it, but in my opinion it made it worse since this money was managed by NGOs of dubious origin that essentially turned solidarity into a business, thereby instrumentalizing the situation. At the same time, ghettoization was prevalent, which is why we saw beatings, disasters and images of a breakdown.

The European continent has no room for more illegal immigrants and is heading straight for disintegration if this situation continues. The global economic crisis will increase the flows and if no comprehensive political solution is found then the far-right parties will prevail within the next five years.

If that happens we will talk about the end of Europe as we know it. I already see the election results in different countries and I am really scared.

In order to avoid getting to this point of no return, all the so-called rights activists and their attendees must understand that a rational society must find a solution to the problem, not only for ourselves but also for these people who have left their country in search of a better life. Fascism is not about wanting security for one's children and family and a better life for the uprooted. Fascism is forcing one to live in an anarchic society without rules and security.
