EU to vote on changes to Dublin 2 Agreement

Monday, 11 Apr 2016, 10:43

 

The European Parliament is set to call for an end to the rule whereby the first country a migrant enters becomes responsible for processing their asylum application, saying this places disproportionate pressure on border states such as Malta.

A  centralised asylum system would allow the EU to manage the increasing flows of migrants and asylum seekers better says a draft resolution which MEPs will debate and vote upon on Tuesday. MEPs advocate safe and lawful ways for third-country nationals to enter the Union without risking their lives and resorting to human smugglers.

The report enjoys broad cross-party support and is expected to pass with a large majority. It includes sections on search and rescue, people smuggling, returns, relocation, integration, security, resettlement and tackling root causes of migration.

Yet another way for the EU to take away the rights of any country to do what is in their best interest. The EU is nothing more than a dictatorship!
