Double whammy: Influx of immigrants into Europe are job seekers moving into recessionary markets

By now most intelligent people have realized that the influx of millions of ‘refugees’ into the Eurozone are not casualties of the Syrian conflict, but opportunists seeking better economic conditions than what they had in their Middle Eastern or East European country’s.  And what makes this disaster even greater is that these ‘job seekers’ are coming at a time when most of Europe is falling into a economic recession and rising unemployment.

Yet despite the obvious, and the overwhelming evidence that many of these refugees care little about the laws of the nations they are flocking into, government leaders appear to be impotent in dealing with the immigrant problem, as well as protecting their own people and economies from this takeover.

A majority of people coming to Europe from the Middle East and Africa are economic migrants using asylum-seeker status as a cover, according to a top EU official. The EU may reinstate internal border controls if the crisis isn’t resolved in two months.

“More than half of the people now coming to Europe come from countries where you can assume they have no reason whatsoever to ask for refugee status… more than half, 60 percent,” said Frans Timmerman, vice-president of the European Commission, citing what he said were new, unpublished figures from the EU border agency Frontex.

Speaking on Tuesday with Dutch national broadcaster NOS, he added that these false refugees are mostly aspiring settlers from Morocco and Tunisia and are infiltrating Europe through porous Turkish borders in pursuit of better economic prospects.

Timmerman urged EU countries to accelerate the deportation procedure for those who pretend to be fleeing war or persecution. In this way, Europe would be able to provide support for those who need protection, he said. - Russia Today

Angela Merkel has become the poster child for animosity directed against European leaders as Germany has chosen the path of not only taking in the most immigrants, but also ignoring and even in some instances, covering up atrocities these ‘refugees’ have done against women and businesses.  And these crimes are now starting to fuel revolutionary fervor as seen by recent neo-nazi protests in Germany itself, and an increase in gun purchases by citizens all across Northern Europe.

2016 appears to be setting a precedent where the ‘Arab Spring’ of a few years ago is migrating into a European Spring that has the potential to completely change the landscape of the Eurozone.  From secession votes in Spain and Scotland, to political change in nations such as Greece, Italy, France, and perhaps even Germany, the bottom line is that the compassion of people always wears thin when their own economic circumstances are at stake.
