The Third World invasion of Greece has started up again in earnest just as news broke that the European Union transported at least 10,000 invaders pretending to be refugees from that country, with at least 500 more arriving on the Greek islands over the past two days.
), a “milestone” has been achieved with the “relocation” of 10,000 invaders from Greece into other “European Union (EU) and associated states.”
Since the beginning of March, 367 invaders were moved by the EU to Belgium, Estonia, Germany, Malta, Portugal, Slovenia, and Spain, bringing the total number of relocated from Greece to 10,004.
Another 475 invaders were relocated from Italy to Belgium, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, and Slovenia in the same period. This brings the total number of fake refugees relocated from both Italy and Greece to 14,439 since the scheme’s launch in October 2015.
Eugenio Ambrosi, Director of IOM’s Regional Office for the EU, Norway, and Switzerland, said that there had been “a steady increase of pledges and acceptance from participating EU countries in the past few months. At this rate, there will be a further 15,000 to 18,000 relocations from Greece by the end of the program.”
A record number of invaders were moved from Italy and Greece in February 2017, with more than 1,200 relocations to 13 different EU countries. According to current statistics, this month is on track to break February’s record number of relocations.
Germany (3,093), France (2,764), and the Netherlands (1,486) have received the most fake refugees to date under the scheme, mainly from Greece, while the European Commission “has lauded Finland and Malta for being on track to meet their respective target numbers.”
As of February 28, 2017, those invaders claiming to be Syrians comprised most of the “relocations” from Italy and Greece (58 percent), followed by Eritreans (29 percent), Iraqis (10 percent), and other nationalities (3 percent). Women accounted for 38 percent of those relocated; 33 percent of the beneficiaries were under the age of 18.
Relocation beneficiaries to date from Greece were mainly Syrian (81 percent) and Iraqi (14 percent). The program has also relocated 207 unaccompanied migrant “children” from Greece, with Finland accepting the largest number.
The program is being implemented by IOM in close cooperation with Greek and Italian authorities and other agencies, with the continuing support of the European Commission, EU member and associated states, and other partners.
At the same time, the number of invaders landing on the Greek islands has started to increase once again. According to Greek authorities, over 400 have arrived over the past weekend alone, travelling by boat from Turkey.
