The following report from Bulgaria discusses the Great Migration into Europe. According to its analysis, the wave of immigrants has become too large to stop, and further mass migration into Europe is inevitable.
Bulgaria is a major hub on the new routes from Turkey and the Near East, but it is not a preferred destination for the “refugees”. Virtually everybody who arrives in Bulgaria intends to keep moving, most of them towards Germany. So even though they have to put up with the squalid disease-ridden crime-infested migrant camps, the Bulgarians are largely spectators to the current transformation, which mainly affects Western Europe.

|10:45||All countries on the first line [Greece, Italy and Bulgaria], including Austria and Estonia,|
|10:50||and also the next three that will take over the Presidency of the EU during the coming years,|
|10:54||insist that the protection of the outer borders must become topic #1 on the Old Continent,|
|11:01||and the issue must be handled collectively, not separately.|
|11:05||Neighboring Serbia is in no way bound to those strict rules that we have to follow.|
|11:17||There is no connection between someone’s asylum application here|
|11:22||and his asylum application in Serbia.|
|11:28||The two are separate. Coordination between the EU and Balkan countries|
|11:34||is even more complicated than coordination between EU countries,|
|11:41||who have to follow the same rules, after all.|
|11:47||The earliest migration started 50,000 years ago — from Africa to the rest of the world.|
|11:53||After the recent conflicts in the Middle East, Europe has taken 1,800,000 refugees.

“In 2050 the population of Africa is expected to reach 2.5B, 1.3 B of whom are expected to migrate towards Europe, with predicted population of 0.7B”
|12:04||the population in Africa will reach nearly 2.5 billion people.|
|12:08||It is expected that at least half of them will endeavor to come and live in Europe.

|12:13||Imagine a village of 100 people, and 1,000 migrants head to it to settle there.|
|12:20||What would remain of that village? It would disappear. And now imagine the opposite scenario —|
|12:24||a town of 10,000 people asked whether it could absorb 100 migrants.|
|12:31||Well, it could. 10,000 people can absorb and integrate 100 people.

|12:35||Egypt has five million refugees. These refugees|
|12:39||are not even in camps — they live in the cities and towns.|
|12:43||Of course, the risk is large that a part of them,|
|12:46||and even the larger part, would try to come to Europe.|
|12:49||That’s why it’s important to work in close cooperation with this country,|
|12:53||to exchange information within Frontex,|
|12:57||to carry out joint operations for identification of the routes of the illegal traffickers,|
|13:00||to have perfectly consistent penalties for those involved in trafficking.|
|13:11||[It’s been] four years since the beginning of the refugee wave to Europe.|
|13:15||There are four months left till the new spring|
|13:19||Four months till the next refugee wave.|
|13:22||Yovo Kachar tells us that the Commissariat [for Refugees] tries to help|
|13:25||all refugees in Serbia. Four months until the next refugee wave.|
|13:28||In one of the camps he has hired two migrants to help in the kitchen.|
|13:32||And in the camp nearest to Belgrade the women can even work.|
|13:37||It’s a good place. We’ve been living here for five months and are waiting to be allowed to leave.|
|13:43||I wish I could stay here forever, because this is the best place for us.|
|13:47||There are many amenities, such as the room, food, clothes, everything we need.|
|13:52||That’s why we feel good here. Our boss also is a good man, because he helps everyone.|
|13:56||We have meals three times a day, for which we are very grateful to him.|
|14:01||We are going to Germany. My family is there. We reached agreement|
|14:05||to go there simply in order to be together.|
|14:08||We try to help every time, but we can’t always help everyone here.|
|14:11||[We can’t help] in every single case.|
|14:14||It’s difficult to understand which side is right. What is true and what isn’t.|
|14:17||The truth for them is perhaps different — they believe that since they want to, they must pass.|
|14:22||We cannot say this [to them]. Even without war, they will set out.|
|14:28||Everyone looks for the tranquil life.|
|14:34||I think there will always be migration.|
|14:37||Migration can no longer be stopped.
