With 2019 three quarters of the way through, fears of a second migrant crisis continue to grow as the number of migrant arrivals in Europe has increased substantially compared to 2018.

According to a report by the European Asylum Support Office (EASO), the amount of migrants who’ve sought asylum in Europe in 2019 has already surpassed last year’s figure by 10 percent, Die Welt reports.

In its asylum trends report, EASO states: “So far in 2019 more applications have been lodged compared to last year: between January and August 2019 more than 456,000 applications have been lodged in the EU+, up by 10% compared the same period in 2018.”

Most migrants who sought asylum in the European Union in 2019 were from Syria, Afghanistan, Venezuela, Iraq, Pakistan, Colombia, and Turkey.

Germany, France, and Spain absorbed the vast majority of these migrants.

Greece has also been hard but the dramatic uptick of migrants flowing into Europe. The country was forced to absorb over 12,000 migrants this September, more than any month in 2018 or 2019. So far this year, 46,100 migrants have made their way to Greece, compared to 37,300 in the previous year.

Following threats from Turkish President Recep Erdogan to ‘flood’ Europe with 3.6 million additional migrants, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis called on NATO to increase its naval patrols in the Aegean to prevent an onslaught of illegal migrants landing in Greece.

Amid the growing crisis, there have been more and more calls from centrist politicians for the EU to revamp its utterly dysfunctional migration policy.

While speaking with journalists from Die Welt, Kai Wegner, the chairmen of the Berlin Christian Democratic Union party, stated: “It is high time for a paradigm shift in the EU’s rescue policy based on the Australian no-tolerance principle.”

“This would mean bringing back all the people caught up in the Mediterranean without exception. This would reduce the incentives for crossings with non-oceangoing boats to zero and finally put an end to the deaths on the Mediterranean,” Wegner added.

  1. England and France are well on their way to becoming Muslim dominated countries. Hope it works out well for them; better there than in the United States.

  2. This is what the Democrats and some IDIOT Republicans in DC should have us go through…..

    Thank you and thank God for President Trump

  3. Deep State traitors are everywhere! The evil corrupted to the core liberal demonrat Commie Nazi’s party, minions, useful idiots and worst of all, the RINOs(Bolton, McConnell, Lee, Moran, Murkowski, Portman, Toomey, Wicker, Blunt, Graham, Collins, Gowdy, Mutt Romney, Rubio and you know the rest of the traitors ) they’re just as bad! Drain the rat infested swamp, President Trump! Prevent the coup from happening and prosecute to the full extent of the law all these treasonous rats of the deep state! Protect the President and the country patriots like your life depended on it!

  4. Seems as if the countries mentioned, seemingly being the source of the referenced immigration surge need to figure out how to provide for their own people, fixing internal problems that drive this immigration.

  5. These affected countries, Germany, France, Spain & others are targeted by the nomadic masses due to their unprotected borders. The mobs, including the undesirables among them, are free to
    wander, loiter, pillage & then move on to greener & cleaner places without borders.
    Thank God for Trump & his efforts to expand our southern borders.

  6. Europe’s culture was killed when Hitler started his conquests. Five years later, Europe had lost all its men at their peak (their best cannon fodder) and started importing man power from Muslim countries. Living in shanties, they imported many wives to collect monthly stipends for each child. They now constitute 25% of the vote. Europe will go the way of Babylon, Athens and Rome. Dead civilizations. I hope we ain’t next with our wonderful career politicians who plan for the next election and no further.
