The bodies of 50 refugees seeking solace in Europe were found suffocated to death in an abandoned truck in eastern Austria earlier today. In the hold of a broken down vessel off the coast of Libya, another 51 bodies of displaced people have been discovered.
In the past year, Great Britain, according to the its Office of National Statistics, has recorded its highest number of immigrants - 330,000. Authorities in Hungary yesterday detained 3,241 refugee seekers, its highest daily figure exceeding the prior day's number by 700. Thus far in 2015, 181,500 refugees have entered Greece from the sea. On Wednesday 3,000 asylum seekers crossed into Serbia. The BBC-News reports that last month, a record 107,500 migrants crossed the borders of the European Union(EU).
While Germany has urged EU states to share the burden of the increasing numbers of refugees, with Germany itself expecting some 800,000 asylum seekers this year alone, the surging refugee crisis within Europe appears highly complex to solve through simply opening up borders to an open-ended throng of people.
Immigration is good for all countries. Yet, there is a point of equilibrium per immigration that if attained, and passed, could result in the destabilization of some nations - giving strength to right-wing groups, creating undue strains upon national infrastructures and flaring conflicts between immigrants and citizens, as both groups compete for limited employment.
Therefore, the only feasible solution to Europe's deepening immigration crisis must be at the sources of immigration- ending conflicts and wars in those lands.
The shameful humanitarian-damning war Bashar al Assad has waged against the Syrian people has undoubtedly costs more to the Syrian people and to other nations, than it has costs the hereditary despot.
That more than 200,000 people have died thus far in the Syrian war, and that millions of Syrians have been displaced from Assad's responsibility to the welfare of others, is more than sufficient evidence to justify Assad's departure from the Levant.
Moreover, the insurgency of the Islamic State(IS) in Iraq, along with fighting in Libya, Yemen and Afghanistan, are all events that will send more displaced people to Europe.
Hence, it must be more viable and economical, in both the human toll and in resources, for the international community to launch a concerted effort to end the conflicts within the sources of European immigration as a mean to solving the current people crisis on the continent.
