Migration Crisis - News & Updates

This thread is for news & updates on the current Migration Crisis.

Feel free to post/link to credible sources. It would be nice if members could post news & updates from local news/station/papers, which tend to have their ears on the ground instead of national news, which often are biased and/or gagged.

An older report from 2013 in which BMW Group put pressure on Berlin's administration to close an asylum-center near BMW's new showroom.

https://www.rbb-online.de/politik/th...egend-auf.html

Low-Income/Working-class Germans often are overwhelmed by the erection of asylum-centers near their quarters and the consequences, while Germany's middle-class/Upper-class quietly use legal-tricks and political connections to keep asylum-centers away from their districts. Meanwhile the national media demands more "welcome-culture" from the nation....

My feeling is that immigrants are reproducing very same situation they are fleeing from in places of their concentration. EU now is importing mentality and ways and habits of ME and Nothern Africa. Russian historian Fursov told two years ago that World is on the eve of big transformations. May be mass migration is first sign. Ukrainian military expert Sergey Razumovsky is saying in his recent Youtube video about necessety for every Ukrainian with brains to start preparations for survival in absence of state and marauding gangs everywhere. He advises to leave big towns before it will be too late. Reminds much story by Russian sci-fi writer Berkem-al-Atomi "Marauder" about life in Ural region under NATO occupation.

Denied being allowed onto a train going to Germany and told instead that he will be going to a refugee camp in Hungary, immigrant father throws his family onto the railway tracks. Luckily about 85 photographers were there to capture the moment so it looks like they are being accosted by the police.



Video shows it differently.

Basically, horribly distraught that he and his family will have to go one place offering free food and shelter instead of the other place offering free food and shelter..

That's the idea ?

Hungary is getting demonized by the media. Amanpour called it a "villain" last night on CNN International.

In related news, the rumors are that Romania will take in 7,000 refugees for startes. But what's interesting is that some of them will be housed in Maramures, a region known for... old wooden churches.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wooden...Maramure%C8%99

Yup, put an angry (for not being able to stay in Germany) Jihad John in a region with wooden chuches. Sounds about right.

Some people find it only normal that millions of people are coming to Europe and that it is our duty to support them for the rest of their life.

I don't think that's entirely fair.

These people aren't migrants, they're refugees - a very big difference. While some of them aren't doing themselves any favours ("Where is UN ?" placard in a train window, while Hungary is actually complying with UN regulations), they've left behind everything they know for a shot at survival.

We took the Jews, we took the Ugandan Asians, and many others, and if the UK is in a sorry state now, the fault lies with people who were born here, not those who settled, raised families, and largely gave back far more than they were given.

While no mercy should be shown to the scumbags who take these people's money and then cast them to the winds, these people should, at least, be given a fair hearing (unless they think England and the UK are the same).

Following Eurostats 80 % of these people are imposters: 8O % of the asylum demands were rejected . Besides, if these people were honest ,why are they trying to enter Europe illegally ?

There are several reasonable propositions to solve the problem,but the refugee lobby never will accept them,because if the problem was solved,the refugee mafia would be out of work .
