Have a look at this article:

What would you do if you were running a European government? As it stands, any EU country can issue a temporary resident permit that allows migrants like these to enter any EU country without a passport. In my view, this is one of the fundamental problems of the EU: many of the countries are so vastly different when it comes to perspective on such issues that issues like this can occur.

I say fly em or ship em over here- no one cares (at least I don't). More tax dollars. ;)

The issue for the French is that many of these people are likely to want to stay illegally there.

They just booted out a heap of eastern european people with no fixed address who were littering the countryside.

If I had a choice where to live in europe I'd probably gravitate there too.

I am siding with the French in this issue ...sorry !

More tax dollars buwish? I would say more of a tax burden as they will most likely be uneducated and unskilled workers seeking social services.

Ye have no hope! Give em' "x" amount of time to get their affairs in order, get a job, etc.. and it works out. If it doesn't, give em' the boot. I know the French have concerns and I do not blame them, but if you give a fair amount of them a chance, they may do rather well. Plus it beats being in North Africa/some Middle East countries right now.

Ok, i'm all for giving someone a chance and a hand up. As long as they don't turn into a parasite and contributes to society in a positive way, then i'm all for it.
