ABSTRACT
Migration is an integral part of human history. It was caused by various factors, for example to gain the new lands. Today’s immigration to the European Union has significantly increased for several years. This raises the question about the capacity of the Union, that is, the question about the ability to receive such a large number of immigrants. The current European Union immigration policy dates back to the 90s and is still adapted to current needs. The immigration is perceived from the perspective of Europe’s demographic problems. The member States’ position on the admission of migrants is now extremely diverse, which threatens the security of Europe. The current wave of migration is accompanied by numerous demonstrations of opponents who fear the Islamization of Europe. At the same time, many Europeans become resistant to the needs of newcomers to Europe and to their human rights.
