As I was reading, this juxtaposition occurred to me. Let’s hope it’s the direction things actually go.
Hundreds of thousands of failed asylum seekers will be deported from Europe within weeks under secret plans leaked to The Times.
Brussels will threaten to withdraw aid, trade deals and visa arrangements if countries such as Niger and Eritrea refuse to take back their economic migrants. The proposals also envisage EU states detaining thousands of migrants to prevent them from absconding to avoid deportation.
More than 400,000 people who entered the EU in the first half of this year are expected to have their asylum claims rejected, posing a humanitarian and political challenge to EU leaders.
This is the proper response to that “challenge,” and they all need to stand together on it:
“I bid you stand, men of the West!”
