The European Commission (EC) will insist that a proposed system of relocating undocumented immigrants be mandatory for all EU member countries, EC spokeswoman for Migration Natasha Bertaud said Monday.
BRUSSELS (Sputnik) – In late May, the EC proposed to relocate some 40,000 asylum seekers from third world countries, who are currently residing in Italy and Greece, to other EU member states as part of its agenda to manage the crisis of undocumented immigration.
“We understand that some people think our proposal goes too far, some people think it does not go far enough. We think it strikes the right balance and that is what we will be defending,” Bertaud said.
