What Peter Sutherland REALLY thinks about the EU migration crisis

Yesterday morning Ivan Yates of Newstalk 106 interviewed Peter Sutherland, UN Secretary General’s international representative on migration, on the EU migration crisis. 

Mr Sutherland’s solution is to “Europeanise” the matter by supporting EU mandatory quotas for distributing refugees and economic migrants around the EU – a policy for which the Fine Gael/Labour Coalition Government voted last September, although Ireland has a treaty opt-out from EU migration policy.  

The EU’s aim of replacing Europe’s long-established nations and national cultures with multicultural societies by encouraging population inflows was revealingly expressed by Mr Sutherland in his evidence to the Committee on Migration of the British House of Commons in June 2012 when he said  the following:

“The United States, or Australia and New Zealand, are migrant societies and therefore they accommodate more readily those from other backgrounds than we do ourselves, who still nurse a sense of our homogeneity and difference from others. And that’s precisely what the European Union, in my view, should be doing to undermine.”    (emphasis added)

Yesterday the EU Commission announced that Ireland has agreed to join an EU mechanism that will seek to relocate 140,000 asylum seekers by 2017. 

The EU Court of Justice has also just ruled that refugees granted international protection by one EU Member State can freely live and move anywhere they want in other Member States.
