Search and rescue in the Mediterranean (debate)

  Laura Huhtasaari (ID). – Madam President, the EU is weak on crime and weak on borders. These nice open borders attract people – for the most part, young men from sub-Saharan countries – who want to have a better life.

Europe cannot take in millions of Africans. Europe belongs to Europeans. European politicians should not argue year after year about relocating people.

If we were to spend as much energy on the well-being of Europeans as we do on immigration, Europe as a whole would do so much better.

We should be discussing about how to seal the external borders of Europe. Our duty is to safeguard the prosperity and security of the European civilisation.
