IF MY CONTINENT WEREN’T SO RUTHLESS WITH AFRICAN “ECONOMIC” REFUGEES

PART 1: WIDESPREAD CONTEMPT (12/2019)

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.
