THE « ECONOMIC » MIGRATION OF AFRICANS TO EUROPE – PART 1 (12/2019)
IF MY CONTINENT WEREN’T SO RUTHLESS WITH AFRICAN “ECONOMIC” REFUGEES
What kind of respect do African “economic” refugees get in international law implemented across the European Union? All European Union member States relegate a huge majority of refugees fleeing squalor, malnutrition, the impacts of climate change and environmental disasters, the lack of arable land or decent healthcare in only one category: that, precisely, of “economic” migrants or refugees, by definition unworthy of genuine respect. As such, they can be deported back to their country of origin.
