When Angela Merkel opened the floodgates with her "open arms invitation" for "refugees" she clearly said that Germany would accept 800 000 "qualified workers" !
Is this not an example of "selective immigration" ? In fact, is this not exactly what most countries in the EU want as a basic principle when deciding which immigrants they would be prepared to accept ?
To be brutally frank, young and skilled refugees who can work for their living are not a problem when industries lack skilled workers. The real problem concerns refugees or immigrants who are too old to work and are without resources !
Merkel's invitation has provoked a race to get into the "Schengen area". Up to one million migrants are now expected in Germany in 2015 !
Naturally Germany now wants other countries to share the burden. This is by way of a quota system of the remaining 120 000 above the 800 000 which Germany will not take !
Will these other countries be able to "select" which "refugees" they are prepared to accept ? The answer appears to be "NO" ! What will then happen to those refugees not selected ?
A clarification of current EU intentions and principles is urgent ! This problem will not simply "go away" ! It will again become a critical point of discussion very shortly, when the current tide of "migrants" does not subside ! How many "refugees" will knock on EU doors at entry points in the coming six months ?
Is it surprising, that particularly in the EUROZONE, some countries have refused point blank to accept their allocation of "refugees" ?
