The European Union (EU) feels threatened by immigrants. Numerous consultative meetings have resulted in a number of selfish policies and controls being put in place to tackle immigration into Europe. African youth make up the bulk of immigrants entering Europe, using two routes through North Africa.
Today and in future, migration to Europe must continue due to a number of reasons. On arrival in any EU country, you might be put in processing centers but eventually you will be admitted into Europe. Even if you are deported back to your country of origin, find your way back to Europe again – persistence and determination pay.
As the EU clamps down on immigration, it is going to get more difficult to enter Europe. For those interested in immigrating to Europe, the time is now before borders are selfishly shut down completely and a wall goes up.
Europe enjoys safety and peace unlike some African countries. Traditionally, violence forces displacement of persons – leading to migrations. With countries near Europe facing terrorist threats and others having frail governments, people will naturally move away. If the nearest safe and peaceful refuge is Europe, that is where you should go. The other option is to stay in your motherland and sort things out there.
Excellent work opportunities found in the EU should inspire youth to find their way to the shores of Europe. These work opportunities should be taken up for as long as they are available. Do not worry if you have a work permit or not – nobody checks for that stuff as long as you do your job well anyway. In the EU, it is easy to earn an income and support a decent livelihood. This is in great contrast to the hardship and troubles faced in other countries.
The Joys of Living in Europe
Young innovators and researchers should not waste their time in Africa. Being in the EU gives you higher chances of accessing the best research facilities and adequate funding. The latest technologies will be in your easy reach too. If you have an idea that is stuck due to poor access to resources, just move to Europe.
Where else in the world can you find better healthcare than in the EU? Maybe the USA and Russia. Well, the USA and Russia are kinda a long way off from Africa and the Middle East. Europe is the next best option.
The upholding of human rights is another major pull factor for migration to the EU. Rights abuses, extrajudicial killings and miscarriages of justice are rife in Africa and some parts of the Arab world. If you are living in a country where your rights are trampled on, you should seek the green lands of Europe where all are equal before the law. Fairness of the law and working judicial systems abound in the EU.
The EU has Working Systems
Social, economic and political systems of Europe work. Residents of the EU enjoy varying socio-economic and political protections that make life worth living. The ability of your vote to really count is in Europe. Elsewhere, you may vote but election fraud and irregularities cast doubt on the importance of voting in political contests. Do not be demoralized, just move to the EU if you can.
The best thing about being young in EU is that your children will be born in Europe. They become citizens of a European nation by default. When your country of origin allows dual citizenship, your future generations enjoy the privilege of being members of two countries.
Countries to Target in the EU
The best countries to live in within the EU are the northern countries; Sweden, Norway, Netherlands and Germany. These are the prize countries you should target. Italy, Spain, Portugal and France are great EU countries to live in too. The poorer southern countries of the EU make excellent landing spots, though the pickings there may be slim for immigrants. If you can find your way into the UK, you will have hit the jackpot. And do not worry about the breaking intra and inter-relationships of the EU and the USA. Whether the EU breaks up or not, the individual countries are not going anywhere.
How to Get There
Reach the borders of any European country and seek refugee status. Do not worry about the country being broke or not your target. The outer countries of the EU act as a buffer zone to the core and northern EU. However, that buffer can be overcome once you have refugee status since it will be easier to travel through the EU.
And you are right to ignore President Trump. If Europe gets into a sticky spot, the USA will bail the EU or individual European nations out despite the noises and posturing of Donald. Additionally, Trump will eventually leave office and his shenanigans with him.
