Organisasjoner som Røde Kors og Leger uten grenser inntar alltid standpunkt som gavner åpne grenser og fri flyt av migranter dit de til, selv om alle må forstå at migrantene ikke selv kan bestemme hvor de vil i det lange løp.nytimes.com.

Men hensyn til vertsland eller bæreevnen hos europeiske land figurerer ikke på Røde Kors eller Leger uten grensers horisont. De opptrer som advokater for migrantene med menneskerettskonvensjonene som legalt våpen.

The aid group Doctors Without Borders is warning of possible renewed chaos at Greece’s border with Macedonia after Hungary launched a security crackdown to stop people crossing its southern border with Serbia.

The group’s humanitarian adviser Aurelie Ponthieu said Tuesday that border closures «tend to have a domino effect» as neighboring countries follow suit.

The chief of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies says European countries are misguided if they think erecting fences will help solve the continent’s immigration crisis.

Fresh from a trip to Hungary, Elhadj As Sy told The Associated Press on Tuesday that «we know throughout history that fences will never be a solution to anything.»

Hungary has put up a fence with razor wire along its border with Serbia to block an influx of people — many from war-torn Syria — heading to the European Union. The IFRC secretary-general said he hoped European «solidarity will prevail» to help the arriving masses.

The International Organization for Migration is predicting more deaths in the Aegean Sea and increased strains on Greece because of EU «indecision» about how to handle an influx of migrants and refugees to Europe.

IOM spokesman Leonard Doyle said Tuesday that decisions by some European countries to clamp down travel across their borders might have a «domino effect» and affect countries like Greece, where it’s harder to stop people — mostly Syrian refugees — from crossing from the Turkish coast.

Hvis det er solidaritet å legge landene åpne for fri migrasjon som vil tømme offentlige kasser og redusere velferden for landets borgere, har man en spesiell definisjon av ordet «solidaritet». Det har kommet til å bety: Alt som er godt fro migrasjon.
