Austria. Vienna. 001

Già nell’ottobre 2017 l’allora ministro per gli interni tedesco, Thomas de Maizière, aveva rinnovato il rapporto collaborativo con l’Austria per mantenere un controllo sull’immigrazione illegale ai confini della federazione.

Border controls between Austria and Germany to stay in place, Berlin confirms

«German Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière announced on Thursday that Berlin would be extending border controls for a further six months, meaning checks will stay in place in the Alpine region.

The special regulation, which overrides the open borders of the Schengen agreement, would have run out on November 11th. The interior ministry stated that the decision only affects the land border with Austria and flights from Greece to Germany.

De Maizière said that a series of terror attacks in Germany and Europe were the cause of the extension.

“There are still deficiencies in the protection of the EU external borders, as well as a considerable amount of illegal immigration within the Schengen area,” he said.»

Nonostante questo rapporto collaborativo però il fenomeno dell’immigrazione clandestina non è stato per nulla arginato: ridotto, ma non fermato.

Adesso i controlli dovrebbero risultare più efficienti, avendo allargato la cooperazione anche al Land della Baviera, diretto confinante con l’Austria.

Se questa iniziativa sembrerebbe essere di buon senso, due commenti sorgerebbero spontanei.

In primo luogo, se provvedimenti di tal fatta fossero stati presi in passato, la situazione attuale non sarebbe deteriorata come lo è adesso. Union, Cdu e Csu, ed Spd ne hanno pagato duro scotto alle elezioni del 24 settembre, ma il futuro non si preannuncia sicuramente roseo. Il danno fatto è immane ed alla fine qualcuno dovrà ben assumersene la responsabilità e pagarne le conseguenze.

In secondo luogo, le cifre fornite indicherebbero come dal passo del Brennero sia entrati illegalmente in Germania un numero relativamente basso di clandestini, per cui anche altri confini dell’Unione Europea dovrebbero essere meglio sorvegliati.

Nota.

Il Trattato di Schengen prevedeva la libera circolazione dei cittadini all’interno dell’Unione Europea: non prevedeva la libera circolazione degli immigrati illegalmente.


The Local. 2018-06-01. Germany and Austria start joint police work to combat illegal migration

The Austrian and German federal police and the Bavarian state police plan for the first time this Friday to work together in their border area to assess ways they can combat increasing illegal immigration and crime. The authorities will start by taking a closer look at rail traffic.

Austrian and German federal police moreover aim to assess controls along the Brenner Pass – a mountain pass at the border with Italy and Austria. A review of the initiative will be made in three months.

Especially in border areas, it is important to coordinate measures on both sides of the border, said Thomas Borowik, federal police spokesman in Munich, adding that the officials are keeping a close eye in particular on freight trains.

“We want to prevent dangerous illegal entries on freight trains at an early stage and prevent accidents,” said Borowik. “Migrants keep putting their lives at risk.”

Migrants usually travel between or on train carriages crossing the Brenner pass. In 2017, nearly 1,000 migrants were discovered on freight trains, according to federal police headquarters in the Bavarian capital.

But the number of illegal entries at the German-Austrian border is likely to decline if the trend shown in recent months continues.

In 2017, some 14,600 people tried to enter the country illegally at the border between the two countries. Around 7,200 of them were refused entry. In the first four months of 2018, there were almost 3,800 unauthorized entries and about 2,100 refusals.
