Can you or Jon tell me what are the "rules" concerning member states having to accept migrants ?
So, the European Commission proposed that migrants should be distributed throughout the EU to take the pressure off Greece and Italy. The member states agreed to this, which made it legally binding. Once an agreement is made, it can't be reversed - otherwise every member state would reverse their position on something as soon as it didn't suit them.
Nothing more complicated than that. Poland agreed to something, and is now legally bound to it.
Virtually the same as Lebanon but the point stands. One problem was that Germany forbade translators from conveying this type of of information so they couldn't say "He says he's from Syria but his accent is Iraqi" .
Yes, it's really odd that Germany did that sort of thing. Austria was interrogating them on the border to establish their origin, including the use of Syrian translators to make sure that they really were from Syria and not from somewhere else.
As long as. Aslo not allowing for family reunification
Yes, absolutely. From what I can see, family reunification should only be permitted if the entire family agrees that they will return as soon as the conflict ends, and it certainly shouldn't be allowed unless it's a single family member reuniting with the rest of the family - for instance, the father being allowed to come to be with his wife and kids. Certainly any bollocks involving a single 19 year old then bringing the entire family over - hell no.
For me, there's no reason not to offer genuine assistance to those in need, but that help should be proportional. If a family comes here and they integrate well into society and prove that they can be an asset to the country, then of course they should be able to stay - but that should be decided against a set of strict, but fair criteria.
