George Soros Demands EU Accept 1 Million Refugees (Costing €15 Billion) Per Year For Foreseeable Future

Tyler Durden's picture

George Soros want Europe to do a lot more for the refugees, asylum-seekers, and migrants mass-exodus-ing from The Middle East. As he writes in a Project Syndicate op-ed, The European Union needs to accept responsibility for the lack of a common asylum policy, which has transformed this year’s growing influx of refugees from a manageable problem into yet another political crisis.

Each member state has selfishly focused on its own interests, often acting against the interests of others. This precipitated panic among asylum seekers, the general public, and the authorities responsible for law and order. Asylum seekers have been the main victims.

The EU needs a comprehensive plan to respond to the crisis, one that reasserts effective governance over the flows of asylum-seekers so that they take place in a safe, orderly way, and at a pace that reflects Europe’s capacity to absorb them. To be comprehensive, the plan has to extend beyond the borders of Europe. It is less disruptive and much less expensive to maintain potential asylum-seekers in or close to their present location.

As the origin of the current crisis is Syria, the fate of the Syrian population has to be the first priority. But other asylum seekers and migrants must not be forgotten. Similarly, a European plan must be accompanied by a global response, under the authority of the United Nations and involving its member states. This would distribute the burden of the Syrian crisis over a larger number of states, while also establishing global standards for dealing with the problems of forced migration more generally.

Here are the six components of a comprehensive plan.

First, the EU has to accept at least a million asylum-seekers annually for the foreseeable future. And, to do that, it must share the burden fairly – a principle that a qualified majority finally established at last Wednesday’s summit.


Adequate financing is critical. The EU should provide €15,000 ($16,800) per asylum-seeker for each of the first two years to help cover housing, health care, and education costs – and to make accepting refugees more appealing to member states. It can raise these funds by issuing long-term bonds using its largely untapped AAA borrowing capacity, which will have the added benefit of providing a justified fiscal stimulus to the European economy.


It is equally important to allow both states and asylum-seekers to express their preferences, using the least possible coercion. Placing refugees where they want to go – and where they are wanted – is a sine qua non of success.


Second, the EU must lead the global effort to provide adequate funding to Lebanon, Jordan, and Turkey to support the four million refugees currently living in those countries.


Thus far, only a fraction of the funding needed for even basic care has been raised. If education, training, and other essential needs are included, the annual costs are at least €5,000 per refugee, or €20 billion. EU aid today to Turkey, though doubled last week, still amounts to just €1 billion. In addition, the EU also should help create special economic zones with preferred trade status in the region, including in Tunisia and Morocco, to attract investment and generate jobs for both locals and refugees.


The EU would need to make an annual commitment to frontline countries of at least €8-10 billion, with the balance coming from the United States and the rest of the world. This could be added to the amount of long-term bonds issued to support asylum-seekers in Europe.


Third, the EU must immediately start building a single EU Asylum and Migration Agency and eventually a single EU Border Guard. The current patchwork of 28 separate asylum systems does not work: it is expensive, inefficient, and produces wildly inconsistent results in determining who qualifies for asylum. The new agency would gradually streamline procedures; establish common rules for employment and entrepreneurship, as well as consistent benefits; and develop an effective, rights-respecting return policy for migrants who do not qualify for asylum.


Fourth, safe channels must be established for asylum-seekers, starting with getting them from Greece and Italy to their destination countries. This is very urgent in order to calm the panic. The next logical step is to extend safe avenues to the frontline region, thereby reducing the number of migrants who make the dangerous Mediterranean crossing. If asylum-seekers have a reasonable chance of ultimately reaching Europe, they are far more likely to stay where they are. This will require negotiating with frontline countries, in cooperation with the UN Refugee Agency, to establish processing centers there – with Turkey as the priority.


The operational and financial arrangements developed by the EU should be used to establish global standards for the treatment of asylum-seekers and migrants. This is the fifth piece of the comprehensive plan.


Finally, to absorb and integrate more than a million asylum seekers and migrants a year, the EU needs to mobilize the private sector – NGOs, church groups, and businesses – to act as sponsors. This will require not only sufficient funding, but also the human and IT capacity to match migrants and sponsors.

The exodus from war-torn Syria should never have become a crisis. It was long in the making, easy to foresee, and eminently manageable by Europe and the international community. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has now also produced a six-point plan to address the crisis. But his plan, which subordinates the human rights of asylum-seekers and migrants to the security of borders, threatens to divide and destroy the EU by renouncing the values on which it was built and violating the laws that are supposed to govern it.

The EU must respond with a genuinely European asylum policy that will put an end to the panic and the unnecessary human suffering.

...after a quick stop at the Hague for crimes against humanity. I think $20 billion in reparations would be about the bottom end for what he owes the Ukrainian victims of his slaughter and ethnic cleansing there.

Oh hell, why split hairs? Let's just say that if he forfeits his entire net worth to his victims, then he's spared the death penalty. But he has to serve the remainder of his life in a dank, musty concrete prison cell underneath Donetsk and never gets to see the light of day again. He's a fucking vampire, so that shouldn't be too big of a deal. Oh yeah... he also has to have his arms and legs amputated as an act of contrition to all the maimed civilians and amputees he caused in Ukraine.

Seems like the Egyptian billionaires' idea of getting the refugees their own island was a good one.

Just make sure it's not coveted by the chosen or we'll have another big conflagration.

Soros' plan will accelerate the immigration flow and destroy European countries.

How would Soros feel about that - great or terrible?

Sorry, George.  Europe would be very smart to tell you to STFU.  I have every sympathy for Europe wanting to stay EUROPEAN.  I hope the USA will come to a similar conclusion (maintaining America for us first).

George, we will listen to you and the Vatican when we see you do something real for any "refugees" (mostly young Muslim males of military age).

Until then, just shut up.


And add Saudi Arabia and the other "brother" Muslim countries to those taking in "refugees".

When the Pope starts preaching birth control to his flock to stop poverty and help save the environment, rather than just telling the rest of us to pay for his breeding stock, then I will listen to him. The Soros types I will never listen to.

Orderly transfer of German Populations

The Three Governments, having considered the question in all its aspects, recognize that the transfer to Germany of German populations, or elements thereof, remaining in Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary, will have to be undertaken. They agree that any transfers that take place should be effected in an orderly and humane manner.

Perhaps he can help relieve them of their burdensome possessions and have them loaded onto boxcars.

Sound familiar, Georgie?

I'm surprised he hasn't been whacked by a son or daughter.

But of course, there is enough guilt to go around that probably prevented it, survival, at any cost, to include turning in neighbors & family to the SS & Gestapo...a powerful Guilt Quilt, to stay warm in, for later in life.

I don't know where that all comes from, I couldn't live with myself.

A lot of the evil in the world is actually not intentional. A lot of people in the financial system did a lot of damage without intending to.

It's obviously Soros's objective to destroy Europe.  That would make him very happy indeed.

Why should the Greeks have to give up part of their small country.  Egypt is huge, it can easily take them all up just like Saudi Arabia could.  And they would be just that much closer to Mecca now wouldnt that be nice.

As for Soros where are his demands for Israel??  Or Saudi Arabia??

Oh I forgot he is of the 'FUCK THE EU CLAN'

Life sure is sweet....

Plus lots of bombs going off and him and his extended familys will be responsible. 

Cue israel to kick off the show. Blame the whole thing on hapless muslim sheep, led by false muslim leaders. Nice work elites ! 

As rare as life is on planets, it truly is insane that the leaders of us are so evil.

@Paveway--that is a great idea. Anybody else who causes willful damage to persons or property is held liable. Why should he get off the hook. 

During WW2 he trafficked in confiscated gold for the Nazis, yet he has never been hounded by the Holocaust groups. Do they think that the gold was just handed over to him? Where do they think it came from? 

Why does Soros get a pass and someone else who was a camp guard and has spent the post war years bothering no one get arrested? 

Soros is way past his shelf life and if his wealth is not confiscated while he is still polluting the air with his death breath, it should be seized at the moment he croaks and distributed to all his victims.

Whether you ar referring to SJW Sunday-afternoon Tyler or George Soros ... I agree with you.

SJW logic = 1,000,000 immigrants no problem for "rich" nations

Fact: "Rich" nations no longer actually rich.

SJW attitude - trifling detail

Fact on SJW's: "You can't fix stupid."

I guess soros will be cutting a check to help pay for all this, right? and Im sure he has plenty of unused rooms in the houses he owns. How many will YOU be taking in, george?


Anyone proposing anything that doesn't have, as the first step, to stop US/EU intervention in that region is completely full of shit.

'We paid a trafficking agent for false visas to fly here to Germany,’ says 34-year-old Atif. ‘We claimed asylum and came to Giessen camp with other migrants. Three weeks ago, because we had families, they gave us a proper home.’

Atif is well-dressed and speaks perfect English. He used to be a transport manager at Karachi airport and is from a well-to-do family. Between mouthfuls of curry, he adds: ‘But there is violence between political gangs in Karachi. Lots of people are leaving for Europe. The trafficker decided that Germany was the place for us because it is welcoming refugees.’
