Bill Gates Changes His Tune: ‘Brussels Must Make it Harder for Migrants to Reach EU’

Bill Gates, yes, that Bill Gates, the man who previously called on nations to take in MORE immigrants recently changed his tune saying that the EU must make it “harder” for migrants to reach them.

Though this sounds out of character for Gates, it really isn’t. He said that Brussels must make it more difficult for migrants to reach the EU, and in that same breath he emphasized the fact that they must instead spend more foreign aid to “fix the push-factors at the source”.

The Express UK reports:

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

Gates went on to say that the EU must make it “more difficult for Africans to reach the continent via the current transit routes” while simultaneously handing away all of the EU’s money.

Rush Limbaugh commented on Gates’ “new” position:

Says the guy with $80 billion: We need governments to be giving more money to African nations so that they will be able to give that money to migrants so that they will stay in Africa and remain poor and hot rather than migrating to Europe. “Praising Germany having achieved its commitment to devote 0.7{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} of GDP to foreign aid as ‘phenomenal’, [Gates] called on ‘other European nations to follow its example.’ But Gates also spoke of a dilemma caused by ‘the German attitude to refugees,’ referring to Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision to open Europe’s borders to illegal migrants arriving from the Third World.
