EU envoy: Three million migrants waiting to cross into GreeceTAGS:Migration, DiplomacyEuropean Commissioner for Migration Dimitris Avramopoulos on Thursday underlined the need to safeguard a deal between Brussels and Ankara to curb human smuggling in the Aegean, noting that some 3 million refugees were in Turkey waiting to cross into Greece in a bid to reach Western and Northern Europe.In comments during a visit to Athens, Avramopoulos said the deal signed last year between Turkey and the EU had reduced an influx of migrants toward Europe and curbed deaths at sea.Reception centers on the islands of the eastern Aegean, the first point of arrival for

thousands of asylum claims pending despite influx drop | news

Thousands of asylum applications remain pending even though the influx of undocumented migrants into Greece from neighboring Turkey has plummeted over the past year.A total of 2,627 migrants landed on the islands of the eastern Aegean from Turkey between January 1 and March 5 this year, according to government data. In the same period last year, that number was 121,426.However, the reception centers for migrants on those islands remain excessively overcrowded as the majority of the 14,018 people in the facilities have lodged asylum applications. Even those who are not eligible have also applied in a bid to win more time to plan their onward journeys toward western and northern Europe.According to the head of Greece’s Asylum Service, Maria Stavropoulou, the pace of processing asylum applica

Asylum seekers should not have the right to choose the EU nation in which they make their application, a Swedish MEP in charge of reforming the European Union's asylum policy has proposed.
MEP Cecilia Wikström from Sweden's Liberals has been tasked with steering reforms of the Dublin Regulation through the European Parliament by finding proposals which will be backed by a majority. The regulation covers which EU country is responsible for processing an asylum seeker.
In a new article in Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter (DN), Wikström writes that attempts to redeploy around 160,000 asylum seekers from Italy and Greece between EU nations has been a complete fiasco, and that in order for member countries to equally share

presstv-hungary to keep refugees in shipping containers

Hungary’s parliament has allowed authorities to systematically detain all asylum seekers in shipping containers in border areas, a controversial move that is in line with anti-refugee policies adopted by Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has labelled refugees as a “Trojan horse of terrorism.” The Hungarian parliament, known as the National Assembly, approved the harsh measures, which also include women and children, on Tuesday, adding that all asylum seekers setting foot on the country’s soil, as well as those who are already inside Hungary, would be held in container camps on the southern borders with Serbia until a final decision is made on their asylum requests.The harsh rules, which were adopted by legislators from Orban’s ruling Fidesz party and the far-right Jobbik party, also alarmed

twitter triples suspensions of pro-terrorist accounts in one year

This latest report is also Twitter's first to directly tackle concerns about censoring journalists and media outlets... and there's one main perpetrator. Out of 88 requests to pull content from verified media sources, 77 of them came from Turkey -- a country whose current administration is notorious for trying to crush online dissent. Twitter says it did pull 14 accounts and 15 tweets in response to Turkish requests, but it also filed objections "whenever possible." As it stands, the country didn't have any success demanding info. Turkey made 493 requests for account details, but was denied every time.There aren't many other big revelations, but Twitter is promising more news on American data requests. The internet giant now has a space in its US report for touching on those national secur

germany to test dialect analysis software on asylum-seekers

Germany plans to test software that can automatically recognize a person's dialect to help determine whether asylum-seekers are really where they claim they're from.
Germany's Office for Migration and Refugees confirmed a report on the pilot project Friday by the Die Welt newspaper.An agency spokeswoman says the software would complement existing methods used to verify a person's identity.Andrea Brinkmann told The Associated Press that officials would still rely on a range of information, including documents presented by the asylum-seeker and an expert opinion, before reaching a final conclusion.Authorities have expressed concern that some asylum-seekers from Arab countries are claiming to be from Syria in hopes of increasing their chances of staying in Germany.Last year officials commis

twitter suspends more accounts linked to 'terrorism'

Twitter said Tuesday it suspended 376,890 accounts in the second half of 2016 for "promotion of terrorism," an increase of 60 percent over the prior six-month period.
The latest suspensions bring the total number of blocked accounts to 636,248 from August 2015, when Twitter stepped up efforts to curb "violent extremism," the company announced as part of its latest transparency report.The actions come with social networks under pressure from governments around the world to use technology tools to lock out jihadists and others who use the platforms to recruit and launch attacks.Twitter said separately the number of government requests for user data rose seven percent from the prior six-month period, but affected 13 percent fewer accounts.For requests to remove content—from governments and

A new method of assessing the age of asylum applicants by examining their teeth and knee joints is now under way in Sweden.
The new system, unveiled in September by the national forensic medicine agency (Rättsmedicinalverket), is designed to make age assessment during the asylum process more accurate.
The Swedish migration authority (Migrationsverket) has previously been criticized for failings in its initial age assessments of applicants, with some municipalities reporting suspected cases of adults being registered as a children and placed into residential care homes for young people or sent to school.
The first cases in which the new method will be used are to be sent from Migrationsverket to Rättsmedicinalverket on

court to rule on turkey's 'safe' status after appeal of syrians denied asylum |

Greece’s highest administrative court is expected to rule later this month on whether Turkey can be considered a safe country for refugees being returned under a deal with the European Union.The Council of State’s plenary on Friday heard arguments based on the appeal of two Syrian nationals whose asylum applications were rejected by the Greek Asylum Committee.The Syrians’ lawyers argued that the rejection is a violation of the UN Charter of Human Rights and the Geneva Convention as the committee based its decision solely on Turkey’s assurances, without a proper assessment of conditions in the neighboring country.Another plaintiff acting on their behalf, the Greek Council for Refugees, has also raised questions regarding the partiality of the judges serving on the Asylum Committee’s panels.

exclusive: trump admin. plans expanded immigrant detention

The Trump administration is planning to radically expand the program and facilities for the detention of immigrant families seeking asylum in the United States, according to documents obtained exclusively by All In. In a town hall with Department of Homeland Security staffers last month, Asylum Division Chief John Lafferty said DHS had already located 20,000 beds for the indefinite detention of those seeking asylum, according to notes from the meeting obtained by All In. This would represent a nearly 500% increase from current capacity. The plan is part of a new set of policies for those apprehended at the border that would make good on President Trump’s campaign promise to end the practice critics call “catch and release.”  “If implemented, this expansion in immigration detention would be

future of thousands of asylum seekers in limbo as government 'changes goalposts'

Refugee support services have slammed the Federal Government’s decision to reduce the time asylum seekers have to lodge claims for asylum. More than 12,000 refugees are receiving letters from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection, warning them they now have only a matter of weeks to lodge their claim.That has been cut from the initial deadline of one year.If that deadline is not met, asylum seekers could lose their right to claim asylum, welfare payments and access to Medicare.‘Alarming' decision: refugee groups“We’re extremely alarmed,” said Tim O’Connor, from the Refugee Council of Australia.“It’s having an enormously negative impact on people who have been kept in limbo, sometimes for many many years,” he told SBS News.“These people have come to Australia seeking safety, t

edward snowden: refugees who helped him seek canada asylum

Refugees who sheltered former NSA contractor Edward Snowden in Hong Kong are now seeking asylum in Canada, their lawyers said on Thursday.The three families are at risk for persecution and grave consequences if they stay in Hong Kong, according to their layers from a non-profit called For the Refugees. “More than ever, relocating our clients to Canada is a question of life and death,” one of the Canadian attorneys, Marc-André Séguin, said in a statement.Snowden fled the United States in 2013 after leaking thousands of files about the NSA’s surveillance operations. The refugee families fed and housed him for two weeks before he left for Russia, according to the BBC.In recent weeks, the refugees’ lawyers felt they needed to speed up their asylum process, Séguin told the South China Morning P

refugees trapped in russian airport win compensation payout

Russia has been ordered to pay more than 80,000 euros ($86,870) to
four men forced to live in the transit zone of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport
while applying for asylum.Three of the men, from Iraq, Palestine and Syria, were
forced to wait in the airport for more than five months after being turned away
at the Russian border. The fourth man, a Somalian national, lived in the
transit zone for almost two years before giving up on his asylum application.The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) ruled that Russia
had deprived the men of their liberty and subjected them to “inhumane treatment.”
The men survived thanks to weekly deliveries of food and
toiletries by Russia’s UN Refugee Committee, but were not given access to basic
facilities such as showers, the ECtHR found.The Russian

The support provided to children during the asylum process in Sweden is often inadequate, according to the Ombudsman for Children (BO), which is tasked with representing the rights and interests of children in Sweden.
In its new annual report, BO interviewed 600 refugee children and found that they describe the asylum process and the long waits involved as "difficult" and "painful".
Some felt like the discussions which took place during their asylum application were not designed for children, as they did not understand the questions and did not feel secure. The children also told stories of unsafe living environments and disruption which impacted their schooling.
It is not clear what proportion of
