Halla-aho: Commission’s relocation scheme would result in catastrophe if ever actualised

Yesterday the European commission published its new communication concerning the new European asylum system which is meant to replace the partially suspended Dublin regulation.

Yesterday the European commission published its new communication concerning the new European asylum system which is meant to replace the partially suspended Dublin regulation. The commission paper proposes a permanent asylum seeker relocation scheme between member states, a common asylum procedure, a harmonisation of the asylum legislation, and it wishes to expand the powers of the European Asylum Support Office.

Finnish ECR MEP Jussi Halla-aho commented the commission proposal:

“The Commission proposal to reform the Dublin regulation threatens to make asylum seeker relocation a permanent arrangement.

“If actualised the proposed relocation mechanism would in practice mean irrevocable transfer of powers from the Parliament of Finland to Brussels and that Finns could no longer independently have any kind of influence on either numbers or the sort of asylum seekers coming to Finland.

“If the European solution is this, then we should start to consider national solutions urgently which would affect to the flow of asylum seekers before the spring when the asylum situation will continue to escalate again.

“Opening new legal routes to Europe is not a solution because potential newcomers with challenges to integrate to receiving societies are more numerous than the ability of the European countries to bear the resulting financial and societal costs. On the contrary, we support the removal of unhealthy pull factors such as gratuitous social benefits both at the national and European level.

“However I do acknowledge that the Commission has recognised the fact that international protection should always be temporary. After all, at the present moment the justification for protection leads almost automatically to a permanent residence permit and later to the full citizenship.”
