Ministers call for an ‘EU border’ in Africa to stem the flow of migrants into Europe as it emerges 42,500 have landed in Italy in just one month

Rescuers saved 484 migrants from boats in the Mediterranean on Saturday – as politicians called for a EU mission in the Sahara to stem migrant crossings.

The bodies of seven men were also discovered by the Italian coast guard during the latest rescue mission.

The migrants were rescued from four separate rubber boats by the Italian coast guard and navy, an aid group and two private vessels, the coast guard said in a statement.

    Insanity. You just can keep taking people and more people and more… it is a disaster now and will be worse shortly if it’s not stopped.

    There are already bits of the EU in Africa – Ceuta and Melilla.
    Their presence contributes nothing to a solution.

    50million African workers into EU…2008

    ‘Brussels economists claim Britain and other EU states will “need” 56 million immigrant workers between them by 2050’

    Rumour has it, that feminist Trudeau is hiring cruise ships to bring them here.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Nonsense. Europe can and must accept 10 million more of these people. There’s always room and tolerance.

    • There are over 500 million Europeans. So why not 50 million more immigrants? No big deal. — this is how the pro-immigration people think. They think it won’t make a noticeable difference.

  • Manual Paleologos

    They invited those people into their country. Their circus. Their monkeys.

    When their country implodes, we must absolutely seal our borders against European refugees. Let them stay home and fight or die. Euronate on them. We don’t want their disease here. We have enough of their kind already.

      What are you talking about, we are exactly the same.

  • We may see the demise of Europe in our lifetimes. When the invaders are numerous enough, they will be rioting and looting and killing and raping in large numbers. Most Europeans will be like sheep to the slaughter, so pc that they will be unable to fight back. Sad times ahead.

      If we won’t shoot the fuckers now—-we are going to be toast.

    • Bataviawillem

      I don’t know about that, they proved to be brutally efficient in killing in the past.

      • Their bite has considerably diminished thanks to constant education in pc.

    What good is a Border or a Wall if you won’t defend it ?
    If you intend to Defend it —then save taxpayer money and prove that you can defend a line on the ground.
    If you can’t even do this then don’t waste money building a fucking wall.

  • Shebel

    Fuck me–“‘The Ministers call for an EU border in Africa” .
    What a bunch of bullshit.
    You don’t need a fucking border. You already have one.
    It sort of like a big fucking moat.
    The reason you have a moat is to stop the enemy from invading and storming your Castle. If you rescue every murderous piece of shit that jumps in to the ‘moat’—then you may as well just fill the fucking thing in. .
    Oh Yeah ! ” We will build a border on the the other side of the Moat”.

    NO . You won’t.

    Mafia controlled Italy migrant centre, say police [15 May 2017]

    One of Italy’s largest migrant centres has been in the hands of the mafia for more than a decade, police have said.
    Police say the Arena clan made money by providing services at Isola di Capo Rizzuto in Italy’s far south and siphoning off state funds.
    The clan is alleged to have hidden behind a local Catholic charity which officially runs the centre.
    The claims came to light on Monday, when officers arrested 68 people, including a local priest.

    It is alleged the Arena clan, part of the powerful ‘Ndrangheta crime syndicate, may have taken more than a third of the €100m ($109m/£85m) destined for the centre in the past 10 years.
    The priest, named as Edoardo Scordio, had received €132,000 already this year for “spiritual services”, an assistant prosecutor alleged.

    One wonders if any of these migrants will take their soon-to-arrive social security cheques to hop on a plane to Minnesota or upstate NY to avail themselves of Justin Trudeau’s open invitation to multi-culti Canada?
