The European Parliament has approved Vox’s proposal to identify immigrants entering the European Union at the border as asylum seekers or illegally, with the aim of creating a database that allows their monitoring within the member countries.
The one known as Buxade report whose defense has been carried out by the party’s MEP, Jorge Buxadehas obtained the approval of the Committee on Civil Liberties, by 39 votes in favor and 15 against, and must now be negotiated in three bands by representatives of the European Parliament, the European Council and the European Commission for its definitive incorporation into the database Eurodac which is being reformed.
After a year and a half of blockade by left-wing groups, the European Parliament has reactivated the updating this list of immigrants to adapt it to the current migratory flows that are produced in Europe and that are used by mafias to traffic people, including children.
To try to put a stop to this situation, which represents a challenge for the security of the continent, Vox has asked to collect the data of all foreigners who arrive in Europe: fingerprints, images or physical features, to incorporate them into a database accessible to countries of the EU, Frontex and the Asylum Agency, so that a person can be located even if their identity is not known.
The objective, as explained by Buxadé in statements to digital freedomis to create a work tool for the security of the continent and facilitate coordination between countries. Another novelty is that these biometric data will be collected from minors over the age of six to prevent child trafficking, who in many cases cannot return to their countries of origin with their parents because they have fallen into the hands of mafias.
