STATES CHRONICLE – There were more than 1 million migrants who wanted to come to Europe last year after their countries were too dangerous. European countries tried to help them, but they also negotiate how people will cross and shut some routes that were used by hundreds of migrants. While the authorities are thinking how to share the newcomers, an NGO offered to buy airline tickets from them to come to Europe.
The migrant’s issue was an important topic in Europe because there were many people who were worried about what they can do. Almost 2900 people died crossing the Mediterranean see this year and there are more to come. The organization who wants to help them is called “Let’s Fly to Europe” and it is located in Germany. They hope that Germans will give them money so that migrants could come from North Africa. The NGO was founded by two students who wanted to help people because crossing the sea is too dangerous for them.
The group needs to have members from seven European countries if they want to speak in the European countries and they already have people from Greece or Spain who want to help them. They had some problems with the airlines because most of them do not want to bring migrants. If their asylum application was not accepted, the airlines could be fined and they also might have to return them.
The organization hopes they will convince the European authorities not to fine the airlines if something goes wrong with the emigrants. However, we think there is little hope that something will change. Even though Germans wanted to help the newcomers at first, their attitude changed and now they are thinking about having more control over the migration.
There are thousands of people who die while trying to get to Europe. They do not have home or money, all they have is hope. Unfortunately, the situation is getting worse. If the “Let’s fly to Europe” program will be successful, they might have a normal life.
We hope that the European authorities will find a way to solve this huge issue. There are people who do not want migrants to live in their countries because they fear of them. Of course, there might be some newcomers that could be dangerous, but most of them are women and children who just want to live in a safer place.
