EU to draft new immigration policy by October


Wow, doing something as a region about regional issues, you'd think that is a great idea. But of course our "borders over people" crowd of kooks screaming about "Merica's precious sovereignty," are going to fight and fight the future here in North America.

RIMINI, Italy (Reuters) The European Union will issue new immigration policy proposals by the end of October, Sweden's Foreign Minister Carl Bildt said on Sunday, responding to Italy's plea for more coordinated EU action.

"We will have a first proposal from the EU with regard to distribution criteria for immigration flows among the 27 (EU member states)," Bildt said on the sidelines of a conference at the Italian seaside town of Rimini.

The foreign minister of Italy, a country where thousands of migrants land each year after perilous journeys across the Mediterranean from Africa, said earlier in the day the problem must not be left to countries on the bloc's edges.

"We must consider this a European problem. The EU has made many statements ... but has not yet said just what should happen when a group of migrants reaches the borders of Europe," Franco Frattini told a news conference.

On Thursday Italian authorities found a boat carrying five Eritrean migrants who said 73 others had died during the crossing.
