Austrian military intelligence has concluded that if the EU does not rapidly revise its policies towards sub-Saharan Africa, it will soon be facing another massive wave of migrants.
Secret Service Raises the Alarm
Europe will be facing a new wave of migrants

Estimates by the Austrian military Secret Service (Heeres-Nachrichtenamt) say that the number of African migrants will increase massively if the EU does not pay appropriate economic aid to the affected states, and does not take countermeasures as part of their asylum policies. This especially concerns Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Sudan, and Ethiopia.
An analysis by the secret service that will be published in a few days, and was made available to Bild in advance, draws this conclusion: Between 2013 and mid-2016, 550,000 asylum seekers from Africa migrated to the EU.
The Top Ten List of countries of origin is led by Eritrea (ca. 100,000), Nigeria (80,000) and Somalia (60,000), followed by Gambia (40,000), Mali and Algeria (each 30,000), Sudan, DR Congo, Guinea and Senegal (each more than 20,000).
While migrants from Eritrea and Somalia indeed were fleeing terror and war, the largest portion (300,000) of the African refugees have come to Europe “mainly for economic reasons”.
