We need to radically reform the asylum system so that physically forcing your way across the border does not put you in a privileged position at the front of the asylum queue. Otherwise, the only refugees we end up with are strong young men who have no hesitation to cause property damage, or those wealthy enough to pay people smugglers. But as long as countries are signed up to the UN Convention on Refugees they are prohibited from implementing any common sense reforms.

"no bait, no fish" . Europe is under siege from mostly Muslim immigrants from trouble spots of Islamic conflict in one form or another, and it is getting uncontrollable; especially with the instability of Turkey dictatorship. Bombings and killings of civilian in Belgium, Paris, Berlin, Istanbul..... are small scale for worst things to come. The Globalist politicians across the globe have no solution, for they only know how to talk and retreat. Sovereignty, entitlement, enticing to refugees who are not willing to integrate into larger local culture are problematic. Maybe U.N. will allocate them to Saudi Arabia, Iran, Qatar, Russia, China, N. Korea.... for a change! Who caused all these fiasco, and don't forget to thank Obama ????

Live rounds isnt really the awnser here that makes you no better than the places that a few try to flee but most of them are ecnomic migrants who have no business bieing in Europe in the first place, no m3m3m3 has the right awsner here rushing the border give you an automatic NO stamp on your asylum form there are plenty of refugee camps where most of the single young men can stay at.

Language they understand then....you make my point succinctly.

Most of these people are economic migrants. Those fleeing Russia's war in Syria should be bussed to the Russian border where I'm sure they will find Putin singing kumbya armed with welcome gifts.

War in Syria is a civil, not "Russia's" war.

But anyway, let's continue your logic: those fleeing US/UK wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya (and of course vetted "democratic terrorists" from Syria) should be transported to US/UK, right?
