Polish foreign minister calls Merkel ‘irresponsible leader’

Poland’s Foreign Minister, Witold Waszczykowski, lambasted irresponsible decisions by certain European politicians in opening Europe’s borders, singling out German chancellor Angela Merkel.

    Speaking to Italian journalists in Rome, Waszczykowski said: “Irresponsible politicians are those who opened the borders and accepted a wave of migration, the way Angela Merkel did.

    “It was an irresponsible move because today we are dealing with hundreds of thousands of migrants who have not been identified, many missing minors and many…who could not be absorbed even by the affluent German economy and who will be living on the dole for years,” he noted.

    Unlike Germany, Poland was handling the migration crisis “in a responsible way” by “keeping tabs on those coming in from the East, identifying everyone who arrives”, Waszczykowski explained.

    Recent elections around the world have clearly shown growing public support for candidates and political parties advocating the deportation of migrants and stricter restrictions on immigration, including halting it altogether.

    Newly elected leaders in Austria and the Czechia, who also reject the EU’s open border policy, will have emboldened the Polish leadership.  Viktor Orban, Hungary’s leader, has declared central Europe a “migrant-free zone”.

    Opposition, challenges and resistance to deportations and immigration restrictions have increased.

    Illegal immigration into America from its southern border is expected to register a 45 year low. The border chief says Trump’s tough stance on enforcing immigration laws has contributed to the new low.

    Kevin K. McAleenan, the acting Commissioner of US Customs and Border Protection told the Senate Finance Committee: “We are fully tallying our 2017 results but in all likelihood, it’s going to be the lowest level of illegal crossings between ports of entry in over 45 years.”

    McAleenan says that despite a huge surge at the beginning of the year as a large number of illegal immigrants tried to sneak into the country during the final weeks of the Obama administration, the numbers dropped dramatically once Trump took office.

    The commissioner attributes the drop “to very clear messaging” from the Republican president that he would vigorously enforce immigration law.

    “The clear intent to enforce immigration law has resulted in a significant reduction of crossings, but there are still some fundamental aspects of the system that need to be addressed,” he told the committee.

    While most immigrants are hosted in mainly developed countries, their national origins are primarily from developing countries. India accounts for the largest number of emigrants, 16 million or 7 percent, followed by Mexico (12 million), Russia (11 million) and China (10 million).

    Bullying and harassment at Sweden’s new Gender Equality Agency

    Sweden is often synonymous with feminist fanaticism. The country's Gender Equality Agency was opened in January this year and is thus one of its newest agencies. However, even before the government could celebrate a year, 70 percent of the staff are at risk of ill health and more than half suffer from burnout and fatigue. It seems the agency's disastrous workplace culture is related to its staunchly feminist leadership. There is not a single man in the "equal" management group.
