The EU is toughening its stance on non-EU countries returning citizens who have been denied the right to stay

The European Commission has proposed new rules that would make it easier for EU countries to send some non-EU citizens back to their countries of origin if they are denied the right to stay in the EU.

The rules, which are part of the EU’s asylum package, would allow EU member states to return non-EU citizens to their countries of origin if they are found not to meet the conditions for staying in the EU.

The European Commission said that the new rules would give countries the tools to “ensure the effective return of non-EU citizens who do not have a right to stay in the EU”.

Under the new rules, EU countries would be able to send non-EU citizens back to their countries of origin if they are found to have committed crimes, been involved in terrorist activities or have failed to meet the requirements for staying in the EU.

The proposal also includes measures to ensure that those returned are treated in accordance with international law and have access to legal assistance.

The European Commission said that the new rules would help to ensure that the rights of non-EU citizens and the principles of justice and solidarity are respected.

The proposal is part of the European Commission’s efforts to strengthen the EU’s external borders and increase security.

The proposal will now be put to the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union for approval. If approved, the new rules will come into force in 2021.
