European Commission ‘still does not understand’ solution to illegal migration, Czech PM Babis says after new policy announcement

Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis has rejected the new EU migration policy proposal, calling parts of it “nonsense.” Brussels wants countries to admit relocated asylum seekers and also to pay for sending them home.

“At first glance, it seems that the European Commission still does not understand that the solution to illegal migration is to stop illegal migrants when they arrive on European soil,” Babis said.

On Wednesday, Brussels proposed a new “flexible” migration policy. The member states would be given options to admit “some” asylum seekers relocated from other EU countries, to “sponsor” the return of rejected asylum seekers to their countries of behalf of other member states, and to help with “operational” measures.

EU Home Affairs Commissioner Ylva Johansson explained that the scheme will provide “clear, fair and faster border procedures so that people do not have to wait in limbo.” She said Europe should “aim to have legal pathways for more migrants and more refugees.”

Babis said called the deal “unacceptable.”
