  • Bill Gates: EU must make it “more difficult for Africans to reach the continent via the current transit routes” while also relieving “enormous pressure” by sending foreign aid.
  • Last year, Bill Gates called on America to open its doors to Syrian migrants.

 

From Express.co.uk:

BILL GATES has made a massive open-borders U-turn and urged Brussels to make it more “difficult” for migrants to reach Europe.

He had previously called on countries to take in more migrants but now appears to have completely reversed his view.

The Microsoft chief said instead of opening the borders, Brussels should fix the push-factors at the source by sending more foreign aid.

He said: “On the one hand you want to demonstrate generosity and take in refugees, but the more generous you are, the more word gets around about this – which in turn motivates more people to leave Africa.

“[ cannot] take in the huge, massive number of people who are wanting to make their way to Europe.”

He said instead the EU must make it “more difficult for Africans to reach the continent via the current transit routes” while also relieving “enormous pressure” by sending foreign aid.

Last year Mr Gates, who is worth an estimated 60 billion pounds, called on America to open its doors to Syrian migrants.

And he said Germany and Sweden were “to be congratulated” for opening its doors during the migrant crisis.

He said the USA “had the capacity” to follow suit, claiming: “The total number of refugees is not a world record.”
