Europe's current immigration policy is inadaquate

Last Updated: 07 Dec 2018

Differing acceptance rates are signs of disjointed policy and disproportionate burdens

Last Updated: 07 Dec 2018
Example: Germany's accepted 48,000, compared to France and Italy's 21,000 each.

Doesn't Germany have more jobs, and thus more demand? Moreover its bigger, and closer to eastern europe.

Last Updated: 07 Dec 2018
There are significantly more asylum requests into Germany than into other EU countries

The current policy of de-emphasizing rescuing boat migrants to Europe is a way to deter future human suffering

Last Updated: 07 Dec 2018
Note: The EU followed this logic before April 2015 by cutting maritime rescue money by over 60%

Last Updated: 07 Dec 2018
If migrants know they will be rescued from drowning, they will be more willing to risk crossing the Mediterranean

Last Updated: 07 Dec 2018
The 2014 and 2015 maritime migration rates have been comparable, but the death rate has soared in 2015

Last Updated: 07 Dec 2018
Why might it not be just a rational result of differing demand or circumstances
