Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 130
Vicky Maeijer (NI)

 Subject:  More than 4 000 IS terrorists have entered the EU as ‘asylum-seekers’
 Answer(s) 

On 28 January 2015 the Commission stated, in answer to written questions on IS terrorists infiltrating refugee camps, that ‘care must be taken not to place asylum-seekers and terrorists in the same category indiscriminately and without reason, not only because there are no known cases of terrorist attacks by asylum-seekers, but also because such considerations may have negative social consequences.’

Nevertheless, Islamic State claims to have smuggled more than 4 000 Islamic terrorists into the European Union among illegal immigrants.(1)

1. Do you stand by the above statement now that Islamic State itself claims to have smuggled thousands of its terrorists into the EU among illegal immigrants? 2. Do you still believe in Schengen as part of the solution, and not the problem?

How many attacks still have to be carried out on European soil before you see sufficient reason to seal the borders?
