EU - UK Gets Most Cash for Immigrants

Arno Froese

The EU has given Britain more money from a migration management fund than any other member state, most of which it then uses to eject failed asylum seekers.

Despite Italy and Greece having received the vast majority of arrivals over the years, with Germany settling some one million plus asylum-seekers, the UK still managed to secure a far bigger chunk from the EU purse.

Out of the total, some €2.39 billion is used to finance member state national programs. Of that, the UK obtained 16.3 percent, followed by Italy (13.6), France (11.6) and Greece (11.3). Germany got around 9 percent.

Money under the asylum, migration and integration fund (AMIF) is allocated to EU states using a distribution formula based on the number of asylum claims, the number of non-EU residents, and the number of returns effected during the three preceding years.

The British focus on returns also appears to neglect other funding priorities under the AMIF fund like the support for legal migration, integration of refugees, and making sure national asylum systems are working properly.

Arno's commentary

Europe is the number one destination for refugees and immigrants, legal or illegal. A high standard of living, healthcare and education are all but guaranteed.

With Brexit, Britain will still be subject to European laws and regulations, since the bulk of British exports go to the EU. But, for the first time, Britain will no longer have a vote. Most political, as well as economic and financial experts agree that with Britain’s exit, little will change. Britain belongs to Europe and will be a part of the development as far as globalism is concerned. Here we repeat: merchandise is king, and merchandise will win out.
