WARSAW (Reuters) – Migrants entering the European Union should be stopped and turned back to their home countries, Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis said on Thursday in Brussels ahead of negotiations surrounding a new EU migration plan next week.
A meeting of EU heads of government to discuss a new migration plan, Belarus and coronavirus was postponed from Thursday until next week because European Council President Charles Michel, who normally chairs such gatherings, was quarantined.
“We have to change the system of grants and the quota system, it’s unacceptable for us. That’s why we should keep negotiating… the strategy should look like this – the people coming from these countries, they should be stopped and turned back to their countries and be given help there,” Babis said during a press conference.
People moving in from expensive cities and locals with changing needs are contributing to rising home prices and fast sales even as tourism industry takes the brunt of the pandemic’s economic impact
SEATTLE, Sept. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — (NASDAQ: RDFN) — The typical home-sale price in the Las Vegas metro grew 7.8% year over year to $310,000 in August, according to a new report from Redfin (www.redfin.com), the technology-powered real estate brokerage. More than 41% of homes sold within two weeks of going on the market, up from 28.3% last year.
Meanwhile, the unemployment rate in the Las Vegas area—where much of the economy depends on the tourism industry, heavily impacted by the coronavirus pandemic—stood at 16.4% in July (the most recent data available). That’s an improvement from 30% in April, but higher than the 10.2% national rate posted in July.
