    20.000.000 new immigrants from Africa and Asia for Europe

    EU proudly announces that in cheating of its citizens it takes over the USA.
    A "blue card" system should be modeled after US "green card":

    "Blue card" for Europe

    EU's Justice Commissioner Franco Frattini

    Commissioner Frattini has said there must be active encouragement to boost the numbers of skilled migrants
    Europe's governments were urged today to treat immigration as a benefit and not a burden - and a key answer to declining populations in many EU countries.

    EU Justice Commissioner Franco Frattini said there must be zero tolerance on employment of illegal immigrants but active encouragement to boost the numbers of skilled migrants.

    The traditional thinking of migration as "a world of loss and sorrow" had to change, he told a conference in Lisbon: "We have to look at immigration as an enrichment and as a inescapable phenomenon of today's world, not as a threat.

    "We should take more account of what statistics tell us: 85 per cent of unskilled labour goes to the EU and only five per cent to the USA, whereas 55 per cent of skilled labour goes to the USA and only five per cent to the EU.

    "We have to reverse these figures with a new vision."

    Mr Frattini said that despite recent EU expansion pushing the bloc's total population to 490 million people, forecasts said the figure would decline in the next few decades - with a third of residents in the 27 countries older than 65 years by 2050.

    The decline in the overall size of the working population in the 27 EU would begin as soon as 2011.

    The partial answer was managed immigration, without which EU jobs and economic growth goals could not be achieved.

    He said countries with rapid recent economic growth, such as Ireland and Spain, had clearly already benefited from the inflow of skilled workers from elsewhere in the EU and beyond.

    "All skill levels are required. The challenge is to attract the workers needed to fill specific gaps." Mr Frattini said.

    "Working together makes the EU stronger, not just when dealing with problems such as illegal migration and border management but also in seizing the opportunities which migrants embody."

    The speech comes weeks ahead of new Commission proposals, which include fast-track procedures to be adopted in all EU countries for the admission of "highly-qualified third country workers" and the launch of a "Blue EU Labour Card" - a version of America's green card for foreign workers - to enshrine key rights for skilled immigrant workers to move around the EU for jobs.

    Mr Frattini rejected accusations that such plans were promoting a "brain drain" from non-EU countries urgently needing indigenous skilled workers to stay: "Studies show that emigration of highly skilled workers can also have a positive impact on their countries of origin, in particular by easing pressure on their local labour market or in the form of remittances (money sent back home to families) and return skilled migration," he said.

    The Commissioner said immigration was still a far too negatively-loaded term in Europe, and that had to change.

    The resident population of non-EU citizens in EU countries was about 18.5 million last year - almost four per cent of the total population - and would continue to be the main ingredient in the Union's demographic growth. ... ge_id=1811

    Do the Europeans have any idea what unrestricted illegal immigration is doing to the US? Maybe you should tell them Lugundum, since it looks like they are
    too stupid to figure it out on their own.
