The situation of migrants who arrive in Europe remains critical.
In March, the European Union (EU) and Turkey stroke a deal on migrants, allowing every asylum seekers (Syrian included) who came illegally to Greece after March 20 to be expelled from Europe and send back to Turkey. Since the beginning of April, the EU has been applying this measure.
Greece has been facing the arriving of thousands of migrants alone, ever since the Balkan route was closed. Refugees remain in camps where the living conditions are terrible and the fear of tomorrow permanent.
In Austria, the recent and alarming victory of the far right at the first round of the Presidential elections was followed by the adoption of a new law about migratory “state of emergency”: residence permit limited in time, possibility to ask for an exceptional system in order to prevent migrants from passing the borders, and provide evidence of persecution in the home country.
