    Europe's Plan to Deport More Migrants Meets African Resistance

    European Union plans to clamp down on migration met resistance from African leaders, who called on the EU to open more channels for their people to live and work legally in Europe.
    At a summit in Valletta, Malta, the EU offered more development aid in exchange for an African pledge to take back -- or “re-admit” -- more people who cross the Mediterranean Sea and settle in European cities without job or residence rights.
    “Readmission is a difficult subject, we can’t just have this discussion from the European perspective,” Macky Sall, president of Senegal, told reporters Wednesday before the summit. He called for a “frank discussion” of legalizing the status of Africans already in Europe.
    The clash over deportation or legalization echoed debates over immigration in the U.S. presidential campaign, and showed how hard it is for Europe to get to grips with the continent’s biggest wave of migrants and refugees since the end of World War II.
    ‘Demands and Expectations’
    Europe’s open societies and porous land and sea borders make deportation difficult. Fewer than 40 percent of “irregular” migrants who were ordered out of European territory in 2014 actually left, EU data show. Some throw away their passports to make them hard to identify and trace.
    “We have to be firmer about readmissions,” French President Francois Hollande said.
    The 28-nation bloc’s main offer at the summit with representatives of more than 30 African countries was a 1.8 billion-euro ($1.9 billion) trust fund that will be used to promote economic growth to keep people at home and to fight the traffickers who exploit those who want to leave.
    German Chancellor Angela Merkel said extra financing comes attached to “clear demands and expectations” directed toward the African side.
    EU leaders scheduled the Africa meeting in April, when most migrants were coming through strife-torn Libya across the central Mediterranean Sea. Now most are fleeing Syria or Iraq -- not represented at the Malta summit -- and passing through Turkey before reaching the European shore in Greece.
    The EU-Africa meeting runs until Thursday afternoon, followed by an EU-only summit to review the refugee-control efforts.

    LOL at the idea the EU wants to deport Africans. This is all theater. The EU wants as many Africans in Europe as humanly possible, and that number is going to be in the billions over the coming decades. If they didn't want them, they wouldn't be there. Just look to Hungary or the Czech Republic where you can probably count the total number of Africans present with two hands. "Solutions" to the problem are simple and have already been successfully implemented in the Eastern European nations that want to remain European. Western Europe has been unsuccessful in dealing with this because for the Western European elite, European Genocide is the solution.

    Is that an 'on topic' answer to my question?
