Stratfor Europe Analyst Adriano Bosoni discusses the political implications of the increasing number of migrants from the European Union's periphery to its c...
Are you sure you want to delete this scoop?
The economic crisis has contributed to rising anti-immigration sentiment and policies in Europe. Immigrants from Eastern Europe continue to enter the core, but now more from the struggling southern periphery of Europe are also on the move.
One of the free response questions in the 2012 AP Human Geography test focused on increasing Muslim population in many European countries. This video some background context for that particular Free Response Question (as would this article from Al Jazeera titled Europe's failure to integrate Muslims).
Its funny to see that anti-immigration is starting to be a trend around the world first the united states and now europe.I dont agree with illegal immigration but legal mirgartion should not be a problem.
This looks just like the arguments in the US about the immigration issue here. These seem to be be more of legal immigration, as well as illegal to some extent, as to illegal immigration in the US. The governments of some of the EU nations need this population in order to fill the workers shortage that has been fuled by low birth rates. In the US its a little deffernt form of immigration. Here many illegal immigrants are taking the much lower wage jobs and working in cash with no taxes, ie mirgrant farmers. Well we want cheap food, that is the way the farm owners are doing it. In Europe it seems that they are taking some jobs, but I assune since it is legal immigration they are paying some sort of tax on their wages. These immigrants are from other EU countries for the most part. Under the EU treaty it is legal for them to live and work in any member nation. This shows the problem with supranational organizations, a country will lose some of its autonomy in these types of organizations. For example, can the UK limit the number of people allowed into its country, or even limit access to their health care system under EU law? If they do, what can the EU do to the UK? Looks like a fight is about to start!
