  • Malta’s MEPs’ take 

    on the migration issue

  • Therese Comodini Cachia

    "I welcome the EU's pledge to step up its response to the growing migration crisis but human trafficking must be tackled without delay."

    Marlene Mizzi

    "One of the solutions which I  expressed many moons ago is for Europe to give them a future in their own country – ensuring the billions the EU is giving to many African countries are invested in industry, education, health etc. – not in the pockets of the few. This is the only way we can stop this haemorrhage in the long run. With a future in their own country they will not need to risk life and limb to seek a future elsewhere."

    Roberta Metsola

    "... the answer is not fortress Europe. What is happening in the Mediterranean is a direct consequence of what is happening in sub-Saharan Africa and Libya. We need to do more to help the countries in the region get back on their feet and stop the push factor in the long-term. This must be coupled with a fair EU-wide quota or distribution mechanism.

    Alfred Sant 

    "This is not only a humanitarian problem. This has become a security problem. This tragic death of 900 human beings has shocked all Europe. Following these tragic events in the Mediterranean, Europe cannot keep banking on the hope that a solution to this problem will be made after an agreement is reached between the various parts in Libya. We must make sure that no boats will be able to leave the Libyan coast."

    David Casa 

    "We have contributed to this tragedy. Through our inaction we have institutionalised these suicidal journeys. And we have aided a network of criminals to profit substantially from death and misery.  Let us correct our misguided inaction."

    (www.eppgroup.eu, April 2015)


    Miriam Dalli

    "After looking at the EU leaders Council conclusions I welcome the extended Triton budget and the increase in the number of assets. The Malta EU-African Union Summit and actions to deter people smugglers are also steps in the right direction. However much more needs to be done with regards to changes to the Dublin mechanism and a fairer distribution of migrants."
