Mega-corps of border guards to EU is far away: it’s not an egg sandwich

BRUSSELS – the plan to the European border – and coast guard in 2020 to build out the current 1300 to 10,000 employees is hardly feasible. “You can not from the supermarket,” said the Austrian minister Herbert Kickl after talks in Brussels with his EU colleagues. “We do not stand on the brake, but it must be qualified personnel.”

EU commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos talks with Herbert Kickl, the current chairman on behalf of the EU countries. They do not agree.

He suggested that in the long term, perhaps also with 5000. The German minister Horst Seehofer moved by 2025 to emerge as a more realistic date.

The European Commission presented in september for the European corps of border guards quickly and sharply to expand. According to EU commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos is the number of 10,000 carefully chosen and that are also attainable.

The cost would be 1.3 billion euro up to 2020 amounts and 11.3 billion in the period 2021-2027. Prime minister Mark Rutte said earlier that “lots of money”. He called the plans “a little bit wild.”

The ministers were in agreement with the extension of the powers of the Warsaw-based agency. This gives it a larger role in the return of asylum seekers to their country of origin. Also, the service must go together to work with countries where migrants come from.
