Hundreds of migrants turned away by Italy arrive in Spain 17.6.2018 DNA: Opinion
A migrant rescue boat turned away by Italy and Malta arrived at the Spanish port of Valencia on Sunday, ending a gruelling voyage which has made it a symbol of Europe's failure to agree on immigration. Spain swooped to help 629 mainly sub-Saharan Africans on board the Aquarius last week after Italy's new government, asserting its anti-immigrant credentials, refused to let it dock. Spain's Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, who took office two weeks ago, took the opportunity to show a more liberal stance. But the plight of the Aquarius, run by Doctors Without Borders (MSF) with Franco-German charity SOS Mediterranee, highlighted the European Union's failure to agree on how to manage the huge influx of people fleeing poverty and conflict. In Valencia, officials in white protective suits and masks greeted the migrants as they debarked and police started identifying them and processing their information. The Aquarius arrived carrying 106 people rescued from unstable boats near Libya. The others had been ...

Anti-immigration Sweden Democrats get support ahead of elections, likely to affect polls 5.6.2018 DNA: Money
Support for the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats has surged ahead of an election in September to the point where it could be hard for the government or opposition to form a working majority without their support, a poll showed on Tuesday. Immigration has dominated debate ahead of the September 9 vote, which has helped the Sweden Democrats whose support increased to 18.5% from 14.8% in November, according to the poll by the government's Statistics Office. That rise echoes the increase in support for other European populist parties but the Sweden Democrats and its leader Jimmie Akesson have found it hard to gain influence because the party's roots is in the country's fringe neo-Nazi movement. Both the centre-left governing block and the opposition have ruled out a deal with the Sweden Democrats. Support for the two government parties fell to 32.6 percent, down from 36.4 percent in November, and together with the Left Party, which backs the government's budgets, they would be supported by 40.0 percent ...

Slovenia heads to polls; anti-immigrant party tipped to win 3.6.2018 DNA: Top News
The head of the anti-immigrant party tipped to win a national election in Slovenia on Sunday said forming a government would not be easy, as he cast his vote in a town in the country's east. In a highly fragmented ballot for which early returns suggested turnout would be higher than four years ago, the Adriatic state's 1.7 million-strong electorate is choosing between 25 parties. Latest opinion polls put the centre-right Slovenian Democratic Party (SDS) first on up to 24.5 percent. But its hardline stance on immigration means it is short of potential coalition partners, and its leader acknowledged any post-election negotiations would be difficult. "We will probably have to wait for some time (after the election)... before serious talks on a new government will be possible," Janez Jansa - a two-time prime minister - told reporters after voting in Sentilj pri Velenju. Marjan Sarec, whose centre-left newcomer party the List of Marjan Sarec (LMS) was running second on up to 18.1 percent, also expressed hope ...

Danish minister says fasting during Ramzan can be 'dangerous for all of us' 21.5.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
A Danish minister known for her strong anti-immigration views today called for Muslims to take time off work during the fasting period of Ramzan, saying the practice can be "dangerous for all of us". The comments from immigration and integration minister Inger Stojberg, a member of the centre-right Liberal Party, come after Ramzan, one of Islam's most revered holidays in which Muslims around the world fast from dawn until dusk began last week. "I want to call on Muslims to take leave from work during the month of Ramzan to avoid negative consequences for the rest of Danish society," Stojberg wrote in a column for the BT tabloid. "I wonder if a religious order commanding observance of a 1,400-year-old pillar of Islam is compatible with the society and labour market that we have in Denmark in 2018." She said she feared the fasting could affect "safety and productivity," giving as an example bus drivers who have "neither had a drink nor eaten for more than 10 hours". "This can be dangerous for all of us," ...

'Let them work': German business advocates for rejected asylum seekers 8.5.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
Denied asylum and put on deportation notice, Iranian seamstress Masoumeh Bayat in February became one of Germany's Geduldete -- "tolerated persons". The German government acknowledges Bayat, her husband and two daughters can't return to Iran where they could face reprisal for converting from Islam to Christianity. But the three-year permit that allowed her to work at the Fahnen Koessinger textile factory has been revoked. "What happened to Bayat shows the idiocy of the system," said Florian Englmaier, owner of the firm in the southern Bavarian town of Schierling, who hired her in September 2016. "They don't let her work, they can't deport her to Iran, and so they make her a burden on the welfare system," he said. An order for a major client was delayed by her departure, he said, and he has still not found a replacement. It's a big source of frustration for the hundreds of small- and medium-sized "Mittelstand" companies that eagerly hired asylum seekers in the midst of a labour shortage, only to see their ...

Trump floats 'closing up the country for a while' to stop illegal immigration 7.5.2018 General News
US President Donald Trump has indicated that he could take more radical anti-immigration measures, threatening that he could "close up the country" if Congress does not fund his controversial border wall with Mexico, drawing sharp criticism from a top Indian-American Democrat lawmaker. Trump has escalated his rhetoric against illegal immigration in recent weeks, especially in the wake of an annual migrant caravan that is seeking asylum in the US. He has also ordered the National Guard to deploy troops to the border to address what the administration calls a "crisis" there. Addressing his supporters in Cleveland, Ohio, Trump slipped in the idea that people might "have to think about closing up the country." "They don't want the wall, but we're going to get the wall, even if we have to think about closing up the country for a while," Trump was quoted as saying by CNN. "We're going to get the wall. We have no choice. We have absolutely no choice. And we're going to get tremendous ...
