EU Headed For Illegal Immigration Crackdown

The President of France wants a crackdown on illegal immigration in Europe.

Plans for a Europe-wide clampdown on immigration that could see asylum-seekers forced to apply for refugee status in advance and more effective deportation measures, are to be at the heart of France’s European Union presidency.

Nicolas Sarkozy, French president, is proposing a co-ordinated crackdown on illegal immigration in government documents, seen by the Financial Times, which have been drawn up in preparation for France’s EU presidency, which starts in July.

But the idea that Europe needs immigrants for demographic reasons is deeply mistaken.

The document – a so-called “pact on immigration” – also calls for swift implementation of biometric visas and compulsory language lessons for all new arrivals. It acknowledges that the EU needs migrants for demographic and economic reasons but it adds: “Europe does not have the means to welcome with dignity all those who see an Eldorado in it.”

Europe is a densely populated place. What is wrong with letting its population decrease as a result of lower fertility? It will become a more livable place.

Meanwhile the Bush Administration is looking for ways to increase the foreign deluge.

WASHINGTON -- With restaurants and resorts facing summer staff shortages, the Bush administration will announce federal regulations today to streamline the way foreign workers enter the country for seasonal jobs.

The Department of Labor is rewriting rules to help employers find and hire workers for temporary jobs as landscapers, waitresses and crab pickers more quickly and efficiently than current guidelines allow.

In one major change affecting industries such as construction and shipyards, the definition of "temporary" will be drastically expanded -- from the current 10 months to three years.

Will President Obama be even worse on immigration? Half Sigma says the Democrats are far worse on immigration.

I do NOT agree with the guy who says Republicans are equally blameful for high immigration. Go read Daily Kos and see how insanely pro-immigration they are. There's no Republican blog that's like that. I agree that there are Republican politicians who don't give a damn about what Republican voters think if they are receiving campaign contributions from pro-immigration businesses, but that's only so long as they are not losing votes because of it. It has primarily been the forces on the left, like the Daily Kos people, who have convinced the public to be pro-immigration and vote against their own interests.

If there is going be a serious reduction of immigration, it's NOT going to come from Democrats. That I guarantee.

McCain is so bad on immigration that who wins this Presidential election basically doesn't matter for immigration as near as I can tell.

I like low gini coefficients. Immigrants raise the gini coefficient.

Don't believe a word of it.
It's all piss and wind (as the English say).
The fact is that Sarkozy is an immigrationist - as are all of the Euro-elite.
Expect mass, replacement immigration from the 3rd world to continue as per usual ad infinitum.

Bravo! Exactly how I feel about the US too. We don't need non-European immigrants, not to prop up social security, not to fill labor shortages, not for anything.

Slow down there my non-inclusive, anti-diversity minded friend! Without 3rd worlders, how will liberals feel good about themselves and proclaim their anti-racism? How will self-hating, white-hating leftists continue their policies of race replacement and the destruction of Western society, Christianity and our European traditions? Large corporations will be forced to pay white workers in meat-packing plants or construction fair, living wages. Are you asking our elites to try and survive without importing some kind of helot class?

We do not need anyone. Besides, we have plenty forthe liberals to continue hating themselve and whites.

This is correct. In fact, even America is a crowded place, and letting the population decline is a good idea because robots will gradually do most of the work, and by 2050, the world will be very automated, requiring less workers. In some sense, counting on young people to pay for the pension of the old retired people, will not be necessary anymore, since improved productivity of robots will be very helpful to take care of old people.

Quequeg said at June 1, 2008 7:39 AM:

I agree with the view that robots will be doing most of the work and so we won't need more people to take care of non-producers. And increasing the population of non-producers will just be an extra burden on the robots and an extra cost to the country. (Instead, we should invest in anti-aging research, so we can continue to be productive or at least self-sufficient at an advanced age.)

With respect to the presidential candidates, the ILW (Immigration Lawyers Website) ranked the candidates on the basis of which is most likely to deliver "immigration benefits." The ILW winners are in this order:
1) McCain
2) Obama
3) Clinton

I agree with the ILW and that's why my preference is in the opposite order:
1) Clinton
2) Obama
3) McCain
