Merkel: Let Africans come to Europe Legally

Channels should be created through which Africans should be allowed to come to Europe legally as a way of alleviating the illegal population transfer, German chancellor Angela Merkel has said.

Speaking at an EU-Africa summit in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire, Merkel said that creating a legal avenue for Africans to come to Europe would help end their smuggling across the Mediterranean Sea.

On the issue of illegal immigration, Merkel said this was playing “a role all over the African continent now because there are reports that young African men are being sold like slaves in Libya.”

Speaking on the sidelines of the summit, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel—from the Social Democratic Party (SPD), said that “Europe could offer several hundred thousand places each year as long as those people returned voluntarily after three or four years.”

But Guenter Nooke, Merkel’s Africa envoy from her Christian Democratic s Party (CDU), was, according to the media, more sceptical: “No interior minister will let hundreds of thousands in if he is not sure that most of them will return,” he said.

Merkel is currently trying to restore the coalition she had with the SPD before the last election in that country. Her moves follow the breakdown in negotiations with the liberal Free Democratic Party (FDP) and the crypto-communist Green Party, which left her without a majority in the German parliament.

  1. We appear to have complete nincompoops in power judging by this article. According to Angela Merkel “creating a legal avenue for Africans to come to Europe would help end their smuggling across the Mediterranean Sea”, but there are already legal avenues for Africans to come to Europe. In the UK, for instance, there are hundreds of thousands of African immigrants who applied for VISAs and work permits in the usual way. What Merkel means is that losers who do not have the educational and vocational qualifications to receive a VISA should not have to cross the Mediterranean in a dinghy, but be allowed in legally by issuing VISAs to unskilled Africans. EU Commission chief Jean Claude-Junker also agrees with this idiocy when he said in an interview:

    “Since 2014, and during the campaign for the European elections, and afterward, too, in my address to the European Parliament, I have always argued in favor of legal migration. I believe that if we don’t offer legal ways of emigrating to Europe, and immigrating within Europe, we will be lost. If those who come – who are, generally speaking, the poor and needy – are no longer able to enter the house of Europe through the front door, they’ll keep making their way in through the back windows. We need to create legal ways to come to Europe, and the Commission has already made suggestions. Europe will clearly need immigration in the coming decades, so we have to provide those who want to come, and are able to come, and whose situation makes it possible for them to come, with legal paths to get to Europe.”

    What lies behind this desire to open the flood gates is the equally idiotic idea that large scale net immigration can offset the aging of European populations – a policy that has not been debated in parliaments and the media, and about which the public have never been consulted. On this issue alone the EU presents a great threat to the peoples of Europe and requires the member states to follow the example of the UK by leaving.

    1. @Valerian I agree on the fact that more countries should leave the EU. The thing is, if you think about it, the UK is already doomed as it already took way too many immigrants in. Moreso, one would think that Brexit will be allowed to happen because the UK is already lost, it won’t make any difference.

      These devils care not for the white race, everything they do has been planned beforehand I dare say with decades of anticipation.
