Everything in the EU is being done for the benefit of migrants

In a speech given in the European Parliament by Silvia Sardone, an Italian MEP for the League Party, she said Europe’s priority remains focused on migrants: Housing and jobs for those who illegally disembark in the EU.

    The new plan for the integration of migrants has been revealed: Social inclusion projects and new housing for migrants. And in the report on civil rights in the European Parliament, there is no mention of terrorism, while priority is given to the “fight against racism and Islamophobia”.

    Italian daily Il Giornale reported on these sessions in the European Parliament as well as commission meetings held while the whole of Europe is being torn between the Coronavirus pandemic and the resulting economic crisis.

    Sadly, the arguments have nothing to do with recovery or recovery plans. On the contrary, they focus instead on migrants and civil rights.

    For example, placed at the top of the work agenda of the European Commission is the new plan for the integration of migrants. These are multi-year projects, with which the EU is trying to map the precise directions on the issue. The plan, laid out for 2021 to 2027, was announced by the European Commission itself.

    It is based on four principal pillars: Education, work, access to health care, and adequate housing.

    Member states will be responsible for these social policies, but the EU has the power to coordinate the policies and give specific directions. And according to the institutions of Brussels, in the coming years, the various governments must always commit themselves to inclusion, with investments and spending relative to more adequate accommodation for the migrants present on EU territory.

    The first point concerns education: “There is a need to commit to education and training that are inclusive from early infancy to higher education,” the commission plan reads, “concentrating on the facilitation of recognizing qualifications and on continuous learning of languages, with the support of EU funds.”

    The second point, refers to jobs where all migrants, “and women in particular,” the plan further reads, must receive the support to reach “their full potential”.

    Then there is the third point, concerning the health sector. “In addition to specific financing of the EU, the action plan looks to guarantee that people are informed as to their rights and recognize the specific challenges faced by women, in particular during and after pregnancy.”

    Finally, the fourth pillar calls for, “adequate and convenient financing through the European Fund for regional development, the European Social Fund Plus, the Asylum Fund, and Migration and Invest EU,” to find better housing for migrants.

    However, in the countries hardest hit by the Coronavirus pandemic, there are no clear indications as to funds that the EU would make available to restart the economy.

    The EU Parliament has meanwhile been discussing the report on the state of fundamental rights (2018-2019) and according to EU institutions, the priority is to stop the spread of racism and Islamophobia.

    “Instead of confronting the actual situation, it looks like the program of a party of the extreme left, with passages that are biased and embarrassing,” said League deputy Silvia Sardone in her remarks in the European Parliament. “It talks of a European Parliament that has helplessly witnessed the spread of racism, of Islamophobic sentiments, of hostility and intolerance against Muslims, while saying nothing about terrorism, victims of attacks, about those who hate Europeans, our way of life, our culture, our values.”

    Scrolling down the report, it speaks, in effect, of measures to take against the spread of policies that lead to discrimination. The priority of the EU, is quite far from a reality where, on the contrary, millions of people await a concrete response on the economic and health front.
