The European commission is expected to propose scrapping arrangements that mean refugees have to claim asylum in the first country European they arrive in.
Because it’s not really just an EU regulation. That’s the way the whole international asylum seeker set up works. Claim in the first country you get to where it is safe for you to do so.
Aid and succour to those fleeing a violent death, starvation or oppression is the point of the system, not allowing people to pick and choose which place they’d like to receive it in.
