European Commission outlines new migration policy in wake of migrant deaths
Last Wednesday, the European Commission outlined its new migration policy at a news conference held in Brussels, Belgium. The new policy will “enforce rules on asylum as border countries struggled to deal with unprecedented numbers of people trying to reach the continent, fleeing conflict or poverty in the Middle East and Africa.” The EU has been silent about this issue, but recently decided to take responsibility and take action to implement their new policy along with the existing ones that haven’t been applied properly. The new agenda for refugee’s settlement would cost about 50 million euros ($56 million) projected for 2015-16. The Commission emphasized the need to share responsibility amongst the EU members, with the exception of United Kingdom, Ireland, and Denmark, to remove the burden from the two most popular destinations, Italy and Greece.
