Law and order must apply to refugee crisis

It has been reported in an Irish newspaper that a “refugee” family are demanding to be settled in Germany or they will go back to Syria.

The father says his disabled son need specialised medical care in Germany and will not accept asylum in any other European country.

The media needs to be more objective in relation to the influx of “asylum seekers/refugees”.

Instead of relying on “sensationalism” to sell papers — and face up to the reality that “Europe is now facing anarchy”.

The continuing violation of international immigration Laws must be addressed.

Asylum seekers/refugees should be dealt with by the appropriate agencies in accordance with “established procedures”.

They can not be disregarded in a crisis.
