Migrants blamed amid Greek debt crisis

“Illegal immigrants who have swamped Greece’s borders are accused of exacerbating the financial crisis that now threatens to infect other eurozone nations.

The annual cost of sustaining this immigrant population – in terms of healthcare, crime and impact on legitimate businesses – is estimated at 6 billion euros, says the president of the Athens Chamber of Commerce, Constantine Michalos. …

With an official population of just 11 million, half that of Australia, Greece now hosts a staggering 1 million illegal immigrants and asylum seekers.

Nearly 130,000 people were detained last year attempting to enter Greece illegally.

The financial and migrant crises are closely linked.

Athens Chamber of Commerce president Constantine Michalos says that with no documentation and no money, immigrants pour into Greek cities, exacerbating the country’s financial woes by becoming foot soldiers in the nation’s 15 billion euro a year illicit street trade, controlled by organised crime.

“In view of the growing unemployment in Greece at the moment, this is the only way that the immigrants can survive,” Mr Michalos said.

“The problem has significantly exaggerated in recent years due to the increase in the numbers of immigrants and worsens because they are ‘trapped’ in Greece and cannot move on to the rest of Europe.”

And there is no sign of Greece’s immigrant flood abating.

At one notorious crossing area on Greece’s land frontier with Turkey, 30,000 people were detained in the first six months of 2011 – nearly double the figure for the same period last year.

Labour dragged into border fiasco over dropped passport checks

“Millions of people are feared to have been allowed into Britain without full passport checks in a major new borders scandal.

All but the most cursory checks were abandoned on passengers on British-registered coaches as they arrived at Dover, Britain’s biggest port.

Instead of passports being scanned electronically, border guards checked that the picture matched the holder. It means they were not cross-checked to a computer database to establish if the holder was a wanted terrorist, criminal or immigration offender.”

Arab League seeks solutions as 70 per cent of Arab youth want to emigrate

“Manama: Around three quarters of Arab youth want to migrate to countries out of their region due to rising unemployment in Arab states, an Arab League official said.

“Due to their poor participation in society and politics and to rising joblessness, 70 per cent of the Arab youth want to migrate out of the region,” Khalid Al Wahishi, director of Population Policy and Immigration at Arab League, said.”

Der bliver næsten dobbelt så mange nydanskere med navne som Ahmed og Aisha i løbet af de kommende 40 år. Det skriver Kristeligt Dagblad.

Ifølge Danmarks Statistik vil 610.000 danskere i 2050 stamme fra lande i Mellemøsten, Afrika eller Asien, mens der i dag bor 360.000 ikke-vestlige indvandrere her i landet.

Udviklingen fik sidste år den borgerlige regering og Dansk Folkeparti til at vedtage en undersøgelse, der skulle kulegrave, hvilke indvandrere der bor i Danmark om 40 år, og hvordan de kulturelt passer ind.

Men nu har social- og integrationsminister Karen Hækkerup (S) valgt at aflyse undersøgelsen.

“Eid-ul-fitr, i daglig tale Eid, markerer afslutningen på Ramadanen. Eid er et af årets højdepunkter for rigtig mange københavnere, og den holdes af stort set alle med muslimsk baggrund, uanset om man er troende eller ej … Eid fejres af op mod 70.000 københavnere”

“Den officielle statistik viser, at 24.769 indvandrere fra Tunesien og 23.267 indvandrere fra Libyen frem til 31. juli var kommet til Italien. Mange af dem stammer oprindeligt fra Afrika syd for Sahara, men er flygtet fra den politiske uro i de lande, hvor de havde bosat sig.

Af de i alt 48.036 indvandrere er 13.667 siden blevet genbosat i deres hjemlande.

- Vi håber at få hjemsendt i alt 30.000 inden årets udgang, sagde Maroni.”

De nøjagtige tal lader vente på sig:
“Svenskerne lægger låg på deres skepsis

Carsten Jensen har sammen med Jens Peter Frølund Thomsen undersøgt udviklingen i befolkningens indvandrerholdning og den politiske debat i Danmark og Sverige i perioden 1990-2008.

Op gennem 00’erne har der været en heftig debat på tværs af Sundet om, om danskere er mere fremmedfjendske end svenskere, eller om svenskere blot fortier indvandrerskepsisen. Carsten Jensens undersøgelse tyder på det sidste.

»Vores tal viser, at svenskere faktisk er mere indvandrerskeptiske, end danskere er,« siger Carsten Jensen.”

“Seven in ten (71%) Britons say there are too many immigrants in the country and just a quarter (27%) believe immigration is good for the economy according to new research from Ipsos MORI. The latest Global @dvisor survey conducted in 23 countries shows that only Russians are more likely than Britons to agree that there are too many immigrants in their country (77% do so). Other countries with similarly high levels of agreement are Belgium (72%), Italy (67%), Spain (67%) and South Africa (66%). The Japanese are the happiest with their current level of immigration – just 15% think there are too many immigrants.
Immigration has raised also raised other concerns – three quarters (76%) of Britons agree that immigration has placed too much pressure on public services while three in five (62%) agree that immigration has made it more difficult for British people to get jobs.

“Av de spurte svarer 53,7 prosent at utsagnet «Vi bør ikke slippe inn flere innvandrere i Norge» passer helt eller ganske godt med deres egen oppfatning. I 2005, da undersøkelsen ble utført for første gang, mente 45,8 prosent av de spurte det samme. Samtidig mener 48,7 prosent at integreringen går ganske eller meget dårlig, en økning på 12 prosentpoeng siden 2005. Åtte av ti spurte mener at innvandrerne bør bevise sine norskkunnskaper gjennom en språktest før de får lov til å bli norske statsborgere. Ellers i undersøkelsen kommer det fram at motstanden mot bruk av hijab hos kvinner i politiuniform, er massiv i Norge. Over 80 prosent av de spurte sier nei til dette, og 3,3 prosent er «meget negativ» til hijab på politifolk.”

“The International Organisation for Migration (IMO) estimates a million people have flooded out of Libya alone since the uprisings began. The vast majority — about 98 percent — have ended up in neighbouring states like Egypt, Tunisia or Algeria. But along with the thousands of Tunisians who have taken advantage of looser security following the fall of president Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali, enough have headed north to Europe to trigger a crisis there.

Illegal immigration to Europe is now on track to surpass the peak hit in 2008. The IMO says about 42,000 migrants have already crossed into Italy and Malta alone, surpassing the 40,000 total for the two countries in all of 2008.

The numbers piling into places such as Italy and France have taxed the resources of border police, fanned anti-immigrant sentiment from Finland to Greece and even spurred leaders to challenge one of the bloc’s fundamental principles: the free movement of people inside the EU.”
