Internal border controls in Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Austria and Norway has been extended twice but now these controls may permanently be deleted says our dear European Commission. This opens the door for even more refugee flows to Sweden.
EU: “REMOVE BORDER CONTROLS”
The Swedish government implemented mass immigration in Sweden in 2015. Finally the Social Democrats realized that the quantity of the influx of refugees was not sustainable so they introduced internal border controls. The European Commission has recently (May 2017) ordered Sweden and four other countries to remove internal border controls. The European Commission will not approve renewal of border controls for Sweden and other countries.
EU Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopolous justifies this by commanding:
– The free movement within the EU is one of our greatest successes.
Within the EU, there is “freedom of movement”. On the site EU Information Center, I found the following:
“One of the EU’s basic principles is that there should be free movement of people. This means that EU citizens have the right to travel to another EU country and to stay there for a longer or shorter time. Schengen cooperation complements the rules on free movement. It means that passport controls have been removed when traveling within the Schengen area, but the member states have the right to introduce temporary border controls”.
So it is the Schengen Agreement, which has removed the borders and border controls within the EU. Ultimately, it is the European Commission that decides whether the Member States border control.
PETER LUNDGREN AND EFDD
Peter Lundgren is a Swedish Democrat and EU parliamentarian. He belongs to the Eurosceptic group in the European Parliament called EFDD (European for Direct Democracy). In the following video from the European Parliament he give his views on the matter on the mass immigration to Sweden and the Schengen-treaty.
Despite your beautiful words in this House this naivety in this matter has to end. There is of course a limit to the problems of excessive immigration eventually becomes overwhelming of a country. Unaccompanied children who clearly is considerably older than the age of what they’re saying, it is reported daily in the media in my country. Girls are harassed daily in the bathhouse.
Just recently, a 22 year old woman was brutally murdered by a so-called unaccompanied refugee who claims to be 15 years old. It is a great shame that you in this House in no way wants to address these problems. In Sweden we have reached the limit now. We have no jobs, housing or money to handle this mass immigration we experienced last year. The Schengen-treaty falls and I’m happy for that. The EU is a failure that is becoming increasingly evident to the people of Europe “.
