Dear U-debate users,
Welcome to the Illegal Immigration topic, which is discussing sanctions against the employers of illegal immigrants according to uniform standards all over the EU as provided by the Directive 2009/52/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council providing for minimum standards on sanctions and measures against employers of illegally staying third-country nationals.
The basic purpose of this topic is to exchange and collect your contributions relating to the following starting question:
Should the employers of illegal immigrants be sanctioned according to uniform standards all over the EU as provided by the relevant EU Directive?
Your contributions can highlight Issues, Alternatives, Pro Arguments, Con Arguments and Comments reflecting your main concerns, proposals, viewpoints or suggestions necessary to address problems in question. The ultimate aim of the discussion is to create a summary report of the discussion by the facilitator which will reflect participants’ concerns in a comprehensive way useful for different target groups such as citizens, immigrants workers, non-governmental organisations, decision-makers, stakeholders and media.
