New law in Cyprus gives hope for racism

Published February 10, 2021 at 5:59 p.m.

In recent years, the small island nation of Cyprus has been hit hard by immigration from the third world, not least as Turkey, which occupies half the country, has opened its borders to the south for illegal immigration to the Greek-speaking part of the island, which is a member of the EU.

Cyprus is now tightening its legislation on asylum immigration in such a way that anyone who has immigrated illegally or has a parent who immigrated illegally to Cyprus will never be able to obtain citizenship in the country during his or her life. It includes Turkish Cypriots who moved to the Greek Cypriot side, writes Cyprus Mail.

An immigration NGO criticized the proposal on Tuesday, saying it violated the Geneva Convention and meant racism because third-world asylum seekers will now be forced to “forget” their plans to “become” Cypriots, no matter how many generations they stay in the country.

On social media, however, the public highlighted the finding that racism does not create any problems in Cyprus, as does third world immigration.

“Now, frankly, more racism and less immigration are required,” stated one user.

The Geneva Convention does not give refugees any right to citizenship.
