The EU should prevent illegal border crossings and instead take more refugees directly from crisis regions, according to a survey conducted by the Infratest Institute.
The Germans want a fundamental change in the EU's asylum system. This is evidenced by the results of a representative survey of the Infratest Institute, published in the Welt am Sonntag newspaper on Sunday, July 12.
Thus, about 59 percent of the survey participants said that they are in favor of preventing the illegal crossing of EU borders by asylum seekers. At the same time, respondents indicated that they would be ready to support the decision to take more refugees who are particularly in need of protection directly from crisis regions to the EU.
The question that was asked the survey participants was: вЂњShould the reform of the asylum system in the European Union prohibit the illegal entry of asylum seekers into the EU, but at the same time bring more people in need of protection directly from crisis regions to the EU by air?вЂќ
30 percent of respondents said that such a proposal вЂњ leads in the wrong direction.вЂќ Another 11 percent of respondents could not decide on the answer.
