Timothy-Kirkhope-MEP-ECR-UKSaving lives in the Mediterranean, addressing human trafficking, and stabilising the EU’s external border need strong EU co-operation, but creating a system of compulsion is not sustainable, Timothy Kirkhope MEP (na slici) said on 20 May in a debate on the EU’s migration policy.

Glasnogovornik Grupe za europske konzervativce i reformatore također objavio kratki rad postavljanje načina na koji bi EU trebala povećati suradnju, pojačati provedbu postojećih inicijativa i ojačati postojeće agencije kako bi ublažila trenutnu situaciju.

Speaking in the debate on the European Commission’s agenda on migration, Kirkhope, a former British immigration minister, said: “There is no doubt that when it comes to saving lives, addressing the criminality of human trafficking, and stabilising the EU’s external border, co-operation is key. We have a moral duty to assist one another.

“But I do not believe that this assistance should undermine key principles of humanitarian law and asylum and that an individual should be able to seek sanctuary in the first safe country reached. True solidarity is offering assistance because it is the right thing to do, not through compulsion. I do not believe that quota and force relocation is sustainable or democratic, nor is it fair to the individuals in question.

“It is a mistake to have a strategy which addresses all kinds of migration in one document. Economic migration and asylum are two very different issues with their very own challenges, and this joint strategy blurs the lines which should be clear. We do agree on the role of FRONTEX, EASO, Returns, EURODAC, and the need for increased funding and tackling the issue at the source, and I look forward to working with the Commission on this important issue.”
