EU helping Libya to stop immigrants

The EU is providing Libya with 50 million Euros in order to stop the illegal immigration into the EU from Libya, which is an important transit-country from immigrants.

This is disturbing in many ways. First, that Libya is blackmailing EU in order to stop the migrants. Secondly, and more important, that the EU is closing its borders for people that desperately needs our assistance. Third, giving people smugglers/ traffickers an ability to make even more money out of the desperate migrants and finally, EU is then responsible for migrants ending up in makeshift refugee camps in Libya under terrible conditions.
