European Leaders Greece,Germany,Poland,Hungary,Slovakia Threaten Civil War Over Migrant Crisis

 Their fears are this will spread to American, A top EU official has warned that the migrant crisis in Europe threatens to erupt into a huge civil war within 2 years, unless something drastic is done to curb the influx of refugees. European Commissioner for regional policy Corina Cretu says that leaders need to spend serious money on tackling the issue, before migrant ghettos become a “nuclear bomb” of unrest.

Top EU official warns migrant crisis set to spark civil war

Ms Cretu said that this is important for ‘social integration’. She told the Thomson Reuters Foundation this week at the World Urban Forum in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: ‘Social integration will be crucial in the years to come.

‘If we allow ghettos or segregation of migrants, this will become a nuclear bomb in the future.’

The EU asylum system was on the brink of collapse in 2015 as a million refugees and migrants arrived by boat, overwhelming Greece and Italy.

Poland, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic refused to take some of the new arrivals.

The dispute ended up in the courts and has weakened the bloc’s unity, spilling over to other policy areas.

European Union interior ministers are now struggling with the politically charged issue of reforming the union’s asylum system.

Former communist states continue to defy pressure from other European capitals to accept refugees travelling across the Mediterranean which would ease the burden on nations such as Greece and wealthy destination countries like Germany.

Ms Cretu, who oversees the cohesion policy, highlighted recent investments on the frontlines of Europe’s migrant crisis – from the purchase of two rescue boats for Italian authorities to a support network for mayors of cities wrestling with migration.

When residents and migrants clash, ‘mayors are in the middle’, Ms Cretu said, citing the tiny Greek island of Chios, where arrivals of refugees and migrants have risen recently.

The European Union is using a new approach to measure inequality, which should give policy makers a better understanding of which areas are most in need, according to Cretu.

She said: ‘GDP per capita is not very accurate because it doesn’t take into account these pockets of poverty unemployment.’

Ms Cretu also believes that while the cohesion policy’s biggest achievements to-date have been in traditional infrastructure, basic needs have been neglected in many parts of eastern Europe.

She said: ‘We have still people who are dying because of the quality of water, because the networks were built 40-50 years ago.’

ALERT ALERT

Ignored By Media: Trump Is Using Obama’s National Emergency On Mexican Cartels To Build The Border Wall

President Trump declared a State of Emergency at the US southern border on Friday.

Declaring the immigration crisis a national emergency was overdue. Presidents have declared national emergencies for nearly 50 years.

Barack Obama declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day. The Obama emergencies included the Swine Flu, Flint water crisis and Iran.

And Obama declared the Mexican drug cartels a national emergency in 2011.

Congress believes President Trump has $21 billion in unobligated military construction funding money available for the border wall with Mexico.

Now this was mostly ignored by the liberal media. President Trump is using Barack Obama’s previous national emergency on Mexican drug cartels to get funding for the border wall.

Via Law and Crime:

As it turns out, back in 2011 then-President Barack Obama issued an executive order “blocking property of transnational criminal organizations organizations.” Obama cited his authority as granted through the Constitution to invoke the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1701, and the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1601. The latter is the same legislation that Trump is citing to get funding for the wall to achieve his immigration reform goals. That executive order targeted a number of criminal organizations, including the Mexican Los Zetas cartel, an ally of the MS-13 gang President Trump has regularly called out as a danger to Americans.

“Drugs, gangs and people — an invasion,” Trump said on Friday. “We have an invasion coming into this country.”

Trump all but thanked his predecessor on Friday.

“We may be using one of the national emergencies that [Obama] signed having to do with criminal cartels… it’s a very good national emergency… we’re going to be using parts of it,” he said.
