A Crisis in Europe

Ah, the European Migrant Crisis. A tragic event that is still occurring to this day. Also called the European Refugee Crisis. If you didn’t know about the European Migrant Crisis, then here is a short summary on it. Basically, a large number of people from countries from the Middle East and Africa are trying to migrate to Europe. Many of the migrants are either coming from poor countries and they are trying to find better jobs in Europe or coming they are from war torn countries and are trying to flee to Europe to seek refuge. These unfortunate souls have to make the journey towards Europe, fleeing their homes to try to have a better life. It is a sad tale. I do hope for their survival. There is a slight problem that is in their way though. Actually, it is more like a combination of several problems. People that want to enter into Europe must submit an application to be eligible to enter Europe. The European Union can only bring in a limited amount of people. Some countries have many citizens have xenophobia, the dislike or fear of people from other countries, which causes the those countries to prohibit the entrance of any of the refugees. There are also some economic problems that come with inviting immigrants to Europe that I won’t go into detail. In the past year, there have been around 600,000 applications sent to European Union. Of those applications, only less than 200,000 of those applications were accepted. Those who don’t get accepted must be sent out of Europe. Many try to enter Europe illegally, but most of those attempts fail. They sometimes lead to unnecessary deaths of innocent people. This is the worst migrant crisis since World War II. Unfortunately, there is no simple solution to this problem. It can’t be fixed with a simple wave a magic wand. The European Union is faced with a terrible situation. The right thing to do is to admit all applications that are sent to them, but if they admit them all, the Union will face an economic and social crisis. The Union is stuck between a rock and a hard place. There have been over 300,000 new applications that have been submitted this year. If only this can be solved with a few clicks of the heels of a ruby pair of shoes. If only this problem was this simple.
