Migration Crisis 2.0: Greece at a breaking point

A drastic rise in the number of migrant arrivals in the last few weeks has brought a facility on the Greek island of Lesbos to the brink of collapse and has forced the government to take immediate action.

As a result of the overcrowding and deteriorating conditions, Greece has started to move hundreds of ‘asylum seekers’ from its migrant camp on the island of Lesbos to its mainland.

On Monday, close to 1,500 migrants were moved from the Moria reception center on Lesbos to migrant facilities in Thessaloniki, Athens News Agency reports. 

There is also a second group of migrants that are expected to be transferred to a refugee camp in Nea Kavala, Kilkis.

Moria, Europe’s largest migrant camp, has a carrying capacity of about 3,000 people. 





Stockholm: Record Number of Low-Educated Residents Due to Mass Migration

The Swedish capital of Stockholm has seen a surge in the number of residents with little to no education or jobs skills, largely due to mass migration.

The number of people across Sweden with little to no education has dramatically increased from 9,700 people in 2017 to 15,700, a total increase of 61 per cent in only two years, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports. 

In Stockholm county alone, the number of low-skilled and low-educated residents is said to be around 3,000 people.

Exact statistics are hard to find, especially in relation to those who are illiterate, with the Swedish Employment Service only keeping track of those who are registered.

“Then there may be people who are not enrolled with us and we have no control over them,” said Emil Johansson, who heads a unit at the Employment Service.





Hungary: “Migration must be kept outside Europe’s borders”

The security of European people is paramount, the Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Sunday, commenting on the stabbings in Lyon the previous day. Migration, he said, must be kept outside of Europe’s borders.

“We sympathise with our French friends in these hours of grief and pain, and trust that this despicable attack does not claim any more victims,” Szijjarto said in a statement wishing the injured a full recovery.

“Hungary’s position is clear: life in Europe must not be allowed to develop such that we fear for our lives when standing at a bus stop, in street market or at concert because some people living in Europe want to destroy us,”he said. 

An attacker stabbed to death a 19 year-old man and injured nine others in a Lyon suburb on Saturday.

French channel BFM reported that the attacker was Afghan born in 1986.
