AlJazeera Video: Ethiopian Migrants Drawn to Dangerous Journey Despite Risks




The Ethiopians in the video who mentioned they will attempt to get to Europe will do so by claiming they are Eritrean. It's an open secret that thousands of "Eritreans" entering Europe are in fact Ethiopians masquerading as Eritreans. They use the Eritrean identity when applying for asylum due to UNHCR's policy position of categorizing all Eritrean migrants as "prima faice asylum seekers" (i.e. automatic recognition of Eritreans en masse).

Eritreans were given this special status by UNHCR for political reasons. It was mainly put in place to induce Eritreans to leave their country by removing the criminal aspect of their migration and to force to hand of Western countries to accept Eritrean migrants as "refugees". Without UNHCR's designation, the threat of being arrested and deported back to their country would of discouraged many if not most from attempting such a dangerous and expensive voyage. It would of also deterred many African migrants, including Ethiopians, from using the Eritrean name to attempt such a journey.

  2. Few thousands of Ethiopians leave their country while millions of Eritrean have left their country. It is a shame to talk about their country instead of misery of our people. You should address why so many Eritreans leave their country? Why so many of us taking risky journey to reach to Europe? Why our Government is not addressing, show some sympathy, or give condolence to grieving families of Eritreans who lost their sons and daughters in the Medetrean sea while the entire Ethiopian people along with its government officials took a three day to moan and remember those who were killed in Libya? Are Eritrean blood so cheap not to remember? I feel ashamed to be called Eritrean anymore. Anyway, nothing is permanent except change. It may be remote for Eritrean people to live in their homeland proudly but it will happen one day. It is just a matter of time.

    This people are the one that are destroying our image, masquerading as eritreans. by killing & torturing the eritreans that are in ethiopia so they can take their Eritrean ID. so they can use it to pass as eritreans in europe. they even kill 3 eritreans just to take the 25 year old woman ID card. if u ask me they deserve it, how can u feel sad when someone is using you and destroying your image to benefit him/her self. I only feel for my people and Eritrea. This agame they deserve to die.

  8. Eritrea has very few millions in population ( 6 million). If there are millions leaving Eritrea every year, don't you think that by now Eritrea would have been left empty? I do know that is what Woyane wants to see if Woyane can survive that long :))

  17. But what about isaias plea that he would cut the Eritrean immigrants by half if only the European Union offers him money? Is this not an act of admission of the fact that Eritrean youth have been fleeing their country in drove? And if he can cut their number by half, doesn't this imply that he has been engaged in human trafficking?
    No one can deny the possibility that some Ethiopia might have been takind advantage of the Eritrean saga, but to make a blanket statement that all the migrants entering Europe are Ethiopians masquaraded as Eritreans is self contradiction and self defeating for one can not deny what he/she already admitted.
    The UNHCR conspiracy is also the same,self contradiction and self defeating argument for the reason aforementioned.
    Isaias afewerki can try to hide behind any phony argument but the fact that he has been in the helm of Eritrean government unelected and accountable to no one but to himself demolishes all of multiple masks of pretense to good will, exposing his diabolical nature.
    He is being investigated by UN for human right violation ,the outcome of which the European Union must not in any way undercut..in fact, it should apply pressure on him to cooperate and grant visa to the inquiring commission to enter Eritrea.
