France will welcome 10,000 refugees over the next 12 months


News item in the EU funded Euronews:

France will welcome 10,000 refugees over the next 12 months, including sending out teams to Tchad and Niger to identify and transport people deserving asylum status.
10,000 is the equivalent of a small town.

In 2015, the most recent year for which I found figures, France received 71,000 applicants for asylum. Based on reading Douglas Murray's The Strange Death of Europe, I suspect that very few are deported, even if their claim is not good. It has been about that number for several years. 71,000 is seven small towns a year, made up of often desperate people fleeing something, rather than people chosen because of their skills. Is there not some better way to help migrants than settling them in France?

  1. I think there is a larger question that must be asked: why is it someone else's responsibility if some part of the world chooses to butcher it's people and squander it's resources. A friend posted this on facebook: There are so many illogical things about this little video that it is futile to even think about it. But the main question is: why are the kids born in families that take care of them, responsible and/or guilty for the kids born in broken families? It makes absolutely no sense. Mind you, being born in the right environment doesn't guarantee success. Similarly, the fact that the West feels responsible/guilty strikes me just as nonsensical, and bringing these people over doesn't guarantee their salvation! But alas, I am not the only voice to ask the question, and there is no-one interested in answering it either. As many pointed out in this blog and elsewhere, the West deserves what's coming I suppose. As irresponsible as the countries that butcher their people or resources, the West is butchering it's soul.
