Mass immigration is going according to plan
Is mass immigration a kind of force of nature? No, the migration policy of the open borders of the UN, the EU and the Chancellor is proceeding according to plan
By Guest Author T. S.
Is what has been happening for more than three years now purely accidental or is there a plan behind it? To bring this a little closer and to make it easier to understand, a chronological summary of the main sources and explanations on international migration policy and its intended and actual implementation follows. This information can be used to better explain the current migration policy of the states and also of the German Federal Government. For some documents, individual parts have been described separately to underline their importance.
Conservation migration: A solution for declining and
The United Nations study of 21 March 2000 mentions the need for so-called conservation migration. In various scenarios, annual immigration figures are considered necessary for some countries. For Germany, for example, it was calculated that 344,000 people would have to migrate annually to maintain a constant total population (scenario III). The short summary in German can be found in this link.
UN General Assembly adopts New York Declaration
on Refugees and Migrants
The United Nations adopted Resolution A/RES/71/1 (distributed to member countries on 19/09/2016). The complete version in German can be found in the following link. The UNHCR briefing of May 2017 states, among
other things: “… This declaration includes extensive commitments relating to both migrants and refugees, such as saving lives, responding to special needs, countering racism and xenophobia, combating trafficking in human beings, the right of people to be equal to and protected by the law, and to ensure inclusion in national development plans…”.

The Secretary-General of the United Nations reports on
a preliminary draft of the new Pact on Migration
He reported on behalf of the General Assembly on 12.12.2017. The central concern of the report is to design migration in such a way that it benefits everyone. The German version can be found in the following link. Migration is seen as a duty and the positive swells. Phrases such as: “… Allowing legal migration is the best way to end the stigma of illegality and abuse of migrants…” or “… unregulated mass movements in hopeless circumstances fuel the sense that state borders are under threat and governments have lost control. This, in turn, leads to draconian border controls, which undermine our common values…”. An extract of the report can be found on this link.
Global Compact on Migration – Information from the Bundestag’s Scientific Service
This information note was issued on April 19, 2018 and explains the New York Declaration and the federal government’s position on it. The assessment of the Federal Government is interesting in that it considers it to be a politically, but not legally binding, agreement. The following reports by Herbert Ludwig see this quite differently in practice. The short information can be found in the following link
UN, EU and US circles have been planning mass migration for decades
This report by Herbert Ludwig is published on 20.04.2018. This report is the best and most condensed compilation of history (from 1999 to the present) and of those involved in the planned migration policy. The United Nations, the EU, heads of state and strategists of the UNITED States suggest here in documented statements that (mass) migration and the mixing of races into multicultural, ethnic and religious societies is inevitable. According to them, the way to go down this path must be valued more than the majority will of the electorate. The state must even be able to enforce it under duress. A must-read for everyone. The easy-to-read report can be found in the following link
Un strikes global pact for permanent, orderly
mass migration with admission obligation
This short report by Herbert Ludwig of 02.05.2018 is also of great insight, because it shows the most important contents of the New York Declaration and the Global Compact for Migration of 19.09.2016 with practical consequences and a legal assessment. Thus a moral pressure is built on the receiving states, the closing of borders is declared discrimination, the European nations have no right to control the borders, a fight against xenophobia and hate crime (see the German Network Enforcement Act) is demanded, etc. It is interesting that the United States has already declared that it will not join this ‘no-border’ programme, while the European Parliament has already approved it. A German Ambassador is co-chaired by the global forum on migration & development (GFDM) of this process, which is closely linked to the UN. It was not intended to introduce this pact into the Bundestag. At the end of 2018, this declaration is to be adopted by the signatory states at a summit conference. This summary can be found in the following link.
Progress report on the implementation of the European Agenda on Migration
The European Commission’s progress report and annexes are stored on this european Commission website. The main page gives a brief summary entitled ‘European Agenda on Migration: further efforts’. The final document of 16.05.2018 can be found in the following link.
Since this current document is very important for the forthcoming negotiations within the EU on migration policy, the main results are now summarized here:
The EU is calling for more money to continue the actions of this agenda.
The causes of migration are the Syrian conflict, climate change and population growth.
2. The situation on the main migration routes
The number of irregular border crossings detected by the EU as a whole is lower than the number of persons admitted to Germany as asylum seekers who, from a legal point of view, also commit an illegal border crossing.
In 2017, there were 685,000 asylum applications in the EU. Of these, 222,683 (incl. follow-up applications) were made in Germany alone, i.e. about 30% of all, even though Germany is exclusively surrounded by EU countries.
The majority were Syrians, whose recognition rate in 2017 was 94% in 2017. This causes a high level of abuse, as a large number of applicants claim to be Syrians.
In the area of (allegedly) minors (32,963 in 2017), more efforts are expected in favour of the best interests of the child.
3. EU support in the area of migration management
The use of immigration liaison officers for better coordination will be revised.
The Visa Information System (VIS) is to be revised because positive nationals are abusing the permanent residence visa exemption.
Greece will receive refugees (hotspots) financially (€561 million in 2018) and will be supported in terms of human resources by the European agencies Europol, EASO and Frontex.
Pressure on the land border between Greece and Turkey has increased sharply.
There are calls for further resettlement of Syrians.
Some 3.5 million Syrians are said to have registered as refugees in Turkey. Some 1.3 million Syrians are said to have been supported by monthly money allocations. Taking into account the 48,974 Syrian asylum seekers newly admitted in Germany in 2017 and the high recognition rate, it becomes clear what potential for new Syrian asylum seekers still exists for Germany.
The first tranche of the EU was disbursed in 2017. A further €3 billion will be made available from 2018.
Processing of asylum applications in Greece has stalled and repatriations to Turkey are low.
Since the beginning of the crisis, the two neighbouring countries, Jordan and Lebanon, have also been allocated around €1 billion.
Western Balkans Route
The EU is preparing the rapid deployment of Frontex officials in Albania and Macedonia in the event of a shift in migratory flows.
Central Mediterranean route
The area of Operation Themis in the Mediterranean (sea rescue and alleged fight against cross-border crime) has been extended towards the Adriatic Sea, which inevitably leads to an increased rescue of migrants. Frontex has also helped out with personnel and material. What is interesting is the current approach of the Italian Government, which, for example, wants to prevent the entry of NGO vessels into Italian ports.
In Libya, the UN (UNICEF, UNHCR and IOM) and the EU are committed to ensuring that the migrants there receive basic needs, are returned to their homes and/or resettled in the EU. Between May 2017 and April 2018, more than 27,000 migrants are said to have returned and been supported in reintegration.
The joint task force of the AU, the EU and the UN aims to bring 15,000 migrants from Libya to their home countries since November 2017. In addition, some 1,300 migrants are to be evacuated from Libya and resettled in the EU (compare the current average of 15,000 asylum seekers per month in Germany).
An EU trust fund with a total budget of €2.5 billion has been approved for financing. Another billion is still missing. The money will be used in countless projects for the Sahel, the Horn of Africa and North Africa. Germany is the main donor with €157.5 million, which is about 40% of the payments received so far (see France with only €7 million).
In addition, an Investment Plan for third countries has been proposed with proposals received for a total value of €3.5 billion.
Cooperation with countries such as Ethiopia, Guinea, Gambia, Ivory Coast, Nigeria and Niger has been stepped up, which means that, in return for EU financial assistance, migration from and through these countries is to be reduced.
Western Mediterranean Route
A budget support programme of 35 million has been agreed with Morocco.
Irregular migration of Algerians to the EU increased by 43% between 2016 and 2017.
It calls for the UNHCR and member states to evacuate and resettle more people.
4. Return/return and readmission
In 2017, there are said to have been a total of 516,115 return decisions in the EU. The actual number decreased by 20% in 2017 compared to 2016. 188,920 people are said to have been repatriated, or about 36.6%. These figures seem to be very positively calculated. Deportations in Germany have declined in recent years. In 2017, only 27,000 people were deported.
Readmission agreements have been reached with the countries of Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh, but these are quite common in implementation. In the future, consideration will be given to linking the visa exhibitions to readmissions (demand for consideration).
Returns coordinated by FRONTEX increased significantly in 2017. In the first four months of 2018, more measures were implemented than in the whole of 2017.
In the near future, there will be new rules on the provision of statistical data on asylum and migration management (including return, repatriation and readmission).
5. Enhanced border management
Frontex is gradually being developed into an executive European border police force, although this was never the aim of the founding period. At that time, the aim was to develop common standards in border control, risk analysis, training and technology, and in exceptional cases to support them with personnel and materials under the jurisdiction of the host country in the case of requests for assistance from individual countries there.
The current problem is that the Member States account for just under 50% of the required officials and material (e.g. ships, helicopters, vehicles, etc.). Germany represents about 17.5% with 159,000 man-hours.
Frontex currently has 1,500 officers under a rapid response pool (Germany has the largest contribution with 225 officials).
The new EU financial framework 2021-2027, which some EU states want to complete before the 2019 EU general election, aims to massively expand this agency. In addition to the financial growth, a permanent reserve of up to 10,000 people is to be set up. This seems more than questionable in view of the current situation in actual implementation.
In any case, Frontex will present a new EU Integrated Border Management Strategy to the Commission this year, to which Member States should pay particular attention.
6. Relocation, resettlement, visas and legal entry
The resettlement scheme of July 2015 resettled a total of 32,207 people (including the EU-Turkey Declaration). These persons are said to be migrants who undoubtedly need international protection. No further classification or explanation of this classification can be seen in the document. Germany’s share of resettlement was about 15% with 4,313 cases. In the area of relocation, Germany had the highest share with 30% or 10,282 cases.
After the completion of the first programme, Germany, as a pioneer, has now made commitments for the settlement of a further 10,200 places. Twenty other EU countries (with the exception of the Visegrad countries, Austria and the Scandinavian countries excluding Sweden) have declared that they will provide a total of 50,000 places for resettlement. This scheme will be supported with €500 million from the EU budget. On a precise calculation, the resettlement of a migrant would result in about €10,000 in cash benefits for the receiving state.
The EU is also considering using a study to create new ways of legal protection in the European Union (patents) and to develop pilot projects for legal migration.
Greater importance is attached to promoting the integration of third-country nationals. In a eurobarometer survey at the end of October 2017, 69% of Europeans said that integration was a long-term investment for their country. Four-fifths should have believed that the EU had an important role to play in the integration of immigrants.
Member States are invited to respond openly to requests for relocation from Italy and Greece, to swiftly resettle people evacuated from priority regions such as Libya and Niger and to start concrete projects on legal migration with third countries.
7. Conclusions and next steps
The migratory pressure on the EU will continue unabated. The EU must be prepared for seasonal peaks and fluctuations in migratory pressures.
Responsiveness (here: Frontex) needs to be strengthened.
Increasing the repatriation rate poses major challenges.
Efforts to date need to be consolidated and intensified.
Member States must make more resources available.
Migration coordination should take place within the EU institutions and the importance of the comprehensive EU approach to migration management should be underlined.
A common European asylum system as part of the concept must be developed. The new financial framework focuses on migration management and border management.
The UN Migration Pact and the non-binding obligation
The third report by Herbert Ludwig of 24.05.2018 describes how such a pact is legally to be assessed as soft law in its implementation. The short article can be found in the following link.
Constitutional lawsuit against governments ‘in the form of a gang of robbers’
The fourth report by Herbert Ludwig of 01.06.2018 deals with what he sees as a violation of the law of the Federal Government when it comes to immigration practice for decades. The accusation of the passing of the legislature (Bundestag), the right of asylum as a gateway to uncontrolled immigration (see the three open letters of the Gen. Maj. a. D. Gerd Schultze-Rhonhof from 2015 to the Federal Chancellor), the legal lighting and the procedure of the Federal Government in the course of mass migration from 2015 are part of his easy-to-read report. The reports can be found in the following link.
Europe must be able to act – Chancellor is clearly
in favour of a new order
The Federal Chancellor gave an interview in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung on 03.06.2018. Please follow the link, even if the item is chargeable. In this interview, she describes her view of things within the EU and the changes needed. Terms such as €- solidarity, EU as an actor, common foreign and defence policy, disruptive innovations, Banking and Capital Markets Union, European Monetary Fund, Investment Budget, Double-digit billion additional expenditures for Germany, Artificial Intelligence, Communitization of Asylum with “Flexible Refugee Distribution”, an EU-BAMF, Expansion of FRONTEX to the Eu’s Executive Border Police, Schengen existential for the EU, unified EU data systems, Marshall Plan for Africa, EU intervention force, instead of a seat of Germany at the UN only one EU headquarters for the EU
At the 18th Annual Meeting of the Council on Sustainable Development in Berlin on 04 June 2018, Angela Merkel reiterated her ideas.
And in Anne Will’s broadcast of 10.06.2018, the Chancellor made it clear that European law is before German law. See the animated short section.
Does there still need any evidence of where to go? There is no mention of one’s own nation, of one’s own people. This path and the actions of the Federal Chancellor and the Federal Government are in line with the plans of the United Nations and those from Brussels. It is the way to a new order. In Europe, it is the path from sovereign nation states to the United States of Europe, the EU federal state. It is clear that migration policy follows a roadmap or a fixed agenda in which the nation states are hardly given their own room for manoeuvre.
And it did not only begin in 2015 in the course of mass migration, which was made possible by new means of communication and a worldwide structure of countless organizations that support migration.
It began in 1995 with the entry into force of the Schengen Convention, the abolition of intra-European border controls. The subsequent policy of “welcome” by the Federal Government and the subordinate ministries such as the Federal Foreign Office (AA) and the Federal Ministry of the Interior (BMI) with the subordinate Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) has led the asylum procedure in Germany, which has been practising for decades, which is unique in the world, to the gateway or control mechanism for the (illegal) migration to Germany.
Have you ever wondered why the largest groups of migrants come from Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan and why other ethnic groups use Libya as the main country of departure from North Africa to Europe? In all these countries, military intervention was taking place and the respective mandates were extremely questionable.
Watch this short video. Commissioner Frans Timmermans: “Europe will be diverse” (1:31 min.)
Recognising this means understanding why this is happening. If you think it’s right, everything can stay that way.
If you are shocked and do not agree with it, you, as a citizen, should speak out democratically and peacefully. Now and not later.
