European Court of Human Rights Opens Floodgates for Thousands More Bogus Asylum Invaders

European Court of Human Rights Opens Door for Thousands More Bogus Asylum Invaders

The European Court of Human Rights has opened the door for thousands of bogus “asylum seekers” to invade Britain and other European nations after abolishing the right of European Union member states to deport illegals back to Greece.
This week’s court ruling means that any asylum seeker can be guaranteed to remain in Britain (or any other EU nation) just by claiming to have entered Europe through Greece.
The ruling was the first to be heard by the court under the European Union mechanism known as Dublin II, which allows EU member states to deport bogus asylum seekers back to the nation through which they first entered the continent.
The case arose after Belgian deported an Afghan asylum seeker to Greece under the Dublin II rules, which say that an asylum seeker must have their application heard in the EU member state they entered first.
The court found Belgium and Greece had violated articles 3 and 13 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which deal with the prohibition of “inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment” and the “right to an effective remedy.”
According to the court, Greece violated the convention because of “detention conditions and deficiencies in its asylum procedure.”
It was ruled that Belgium had violated the Human Rights laws by “exposing the plaintiff” to the Greek system.
The court also found that Belgium had “violated the convention by denying the applicant an effective remedy against his expulsion order” – in other words, that Belgium had not given the bogus asylum seeker a way of appealing against his deportation to Greece.
The ruling means that the Dublin II rules can be overturned by an asylum seeker merely saying that he or she entered Europe through Greece.
The very nature of the illegality of most asylum seekers’ entry into Europe (and Britain in particular) makes it of course almost impossible to disprove a claim that Greece was an individual’s first port of entry.
At least half a million asylum seekers are thought to be living in Greece without any legal status, which has placed an unbearable strain on the Greek state’s infrastructure.
Earlier, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees has said that the Greek asylum system had “collapsed” under the tidal wave of invaders.
Germany has already officially stopped sending asylum invaders back to Greece and all other EU states will soon follow suit. There are a reported 7,000 such cases throughout the EU, with at least 1,300 in Britain.
Ironically, Britain’s open doors policy has meant that the Dublin II rules have not even been enforced here, so the ruling will only affect asylum invaders in the sense that it will provide an added layer of legal protection against any attempts to get them out of the country.
As Migrationwatch chairman Sir Andrew Green said, “This opens a gateway into Europe and Britain for asylum seekers.
“Future asylum seekers will enter the EU through Greece safe in the knowledge we cannot send them back. Their cases will have to be settled here at the expense of the British taxpayer.”
