Filippo Grandi, the UN “Refugee Chief”, must surely know what migrant flows are doing to his fellow Italian. He could advocate for Italy and Europe working to reduce migrant flows but if he was likely to do that, he wouldn’t be working for the UN. His views on Third World migration is well known.
The Italian diplomat is not a fan of walls, as Breitbart London noted in September when Grandi blasted Hungary’s border fences for doing their job.
United Nations refugee chief Filippo Grandi has said that EU nations must prepare their asylum reception systems to cope with bigger migrant inflows.
Speaking to Refugees Deeply in Davos, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said the “big failure” in Europe’s response to the migrant crisis in 2015 and 2016 was that governments visibly struggled to house, feed, and clothe the massive influx of third world migrants who marched on the continent after German Chancellor Angela Merkel opened the border.
“We need to work more with Europe, and other countries that receive refugees, to make reception systems more effective for larger numbers than before,” he said, lamenting that migrant reception systems in the bloc had “cracked under the pressure” of huge inflows.
