Refugees in the UNITED Europe?

Okay that is the title of the supposed union of European countries that should work together to form something approaching a United State of Europe. There is no doubt that the influx of refugees from the war-torn Middle East, not to mention South-Sahara Africa, has resulted in the display of the most discouraging lack of unity in the decades-long history of the EU. Here are the official EU statistics on the number of refugees accepted in 2015 and 2016 by various key pieces of this perplexing puzzle.

Germany Р1,200,000 РGermany is the biggest country in the EU; France is the second-largest and has accepted about one-seventh of the number in Germany
Italy – 206,500. Another 90,000 have already arrived in 2017 and it is estimated that another 200,000 are scattered around in Italy.
Sweden -191,240
Austria – 130,415
Denmark 27, 115.
Poland – 24,495
Ireland – 5,520
Czech Republic – 2,990
Slovakia 475

Not included are the statistics for the now remote off-shore land ironically called the United Kingdom, which voted to remove itself from the United Europe, though they clearly didn’t mean to. (But that’s a story for another day.)
The statistics speak for themselves with regard to the currently disunited and arguably disintegrating EU. The only bright spot on the horizon. As long as Trump is in power, the EU countries are going to show an increasing desire to huddle under some kind of umbrella in face of the endless rain.
