European Border and Coast Guard (debate)

  Diane James, on behalf of the EFDD Group. – Mr President, the European Union in its futile attempt to deal with a migration policy which is completely incoherent is just about to commit EUR 11 billion. Last month, Frans Timmermans stated here that Europe is no longer experiencing the migration crisis of 2015 and 2016. Little did he know that only this week the Libyan Prime Minister would announce that a minimum of 800 000 migrants are well placed to arrive in the European continent.

So what have we got? We have got 11 billion, we’ve got 10 000 border guards and yet, quite simply, the people traffickers haven’t given up. Spain’s got its problems and the United Kingdom’s got its problems across the Channel. Now, only the 100% withdrawal of the message of open Europe instigated by Ms Merkel is going to bring a halt to this problem.
