In Calais last night there have been a riots for a third night www.france24.com...
This has barely even made the news in the UK even though it is on our border in France and it is here where they are trying to get to. For people who
aren't from the UK or Europe this is the exact reason why a poster on another thread said "immigration is not a right". For people who aren't from
this part of the world Calais is a small town in France where there is a port where ferries travel from daily, where a train called Eurostar leaves
very day and goes through the channel tunnel into the UK. The numbers at the camp called "the Jungle" in Calais have grown significantly over the past
few months. A lot of the people at these camps are failed asylum seekers which then means they are illegal immigrants. However, the illegal
immigrants are becoming more and more hostile in their approach to border staff and normal everyday citizens just travelling to and from France as
well as locals in Calais. A lot of these people are from African Countries and can't be returned because they don't have paperwork (because they have
destroyed it usually) and because Africa then says it won't receive them without paperwork.
I am sharing this story because it shows on a small scale what is happening throughout Europe. To make it absolutely clear to people not from Europe
these people walking through Europe from Greece aren't being checked when they arrive in Greece. Records aren't being taken correctly and a lot have
destroyed their paperwork. Some flatly refuse to have their finger prints taken or to cooperate in any way. Only 1 in 5 of them are coming from
Syria and are therefore protected and should be given automatic refugee status. The other 80% aren't Syrian. Eurostat in its last quarterly report
said that 20% applying for refugee status were Syrian but more worryingly 27% were from unknown Countries! These will be the people who refuse to be
fingerprinted or say where they have come from. So Europe has not way of knowing whether they have a criminal record etc. Can people not then
understand why a lot of Europeans and British people may be slightly concerned about this. If we travel on holiday in the World we have to have a
passport and to have security checks. There are no security checks happening in Europe!
Sweden has now bought in border enforcement because they are not coping. They have run out of accommodation. Sweden is one of the most liberal
Countries in the EU so if they are struggling that should show everyone how huge this problem really is. What do people think is going to happen when
these people start being told there isn't enough room. Europe can take no more? If things like what is happening in Calais start happening on a much
larger scale in Europe where do you think that is going to lead? For those who say we should let everyone in don't you think that is unfair on the
genuine Syrian refugees? If Europe are running out of room then that means there will be lots of genuine refugees who will also be turned away
because economic and illegal migrants have taken their place.
When I was looking at the news about the Calais riots I also saw this
France have arrested a terrorist with links to ISIS and
have foiled a plot to attack military personnel at a major naval base. It also touches on this:
Attacks by extremists returning from Syria or in online contact with jihadists there figure high among the French intelligence services’ worries,
More than 500 French fighters are thought to be with IS in Syria and Iraq, according to official figures, while 250 have returned and some 750
expressed a desire to go there.
250 have returned, let that sink it! That is what is happening in all European Countries these people are being allowed to return. Its only a few
weeks that the man on the train in France was stopped from carrying out an atrocity.
Then look at this other story that was on the front of the newspaper
“I’ve got an AK47 with 275 rounds and six Tokarevs [semi-automatic handguns] with 69 rounds,” wrote Coulibaly, just hours after Said and Cherif
Kouachi attacked the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo on the morning of January 7, killing 12 people. “I also have three bullet-proof vests, tactical
jackets, tear gas grenades and a stun gun”.
This is just the front of one newspaper in the EU just today How many more of these incidents do you think is happening all over Europe. Daily in
the UK we are told of terrorist plots that have been foiled.
Do people not then see the risk of having 1 million walking into Europe unvetted and unchecked?
