Commission plans tantamount to accepting pushbacks

The European Commission has just announced that it will allow Poland, Lithuania and Latvia to ‘re-direct’ asylum seekers to a formal border crossing point, where they can be detained for up to 20 weeks.

It would send the EU’s climate and energy policy on a completely wrong path!
