Invasion of Europe news…..
I should have posted this yesterday, but it doesn’t matter if the news is a bit old. The major point I want to make with this post is this (something that no one seems to want to get the answer to):
So where are these impoverished people from all over Africa and the Middle East (Central America too!) getting gobs of cash to pay traffickers?
Where are the investigators trying to find that answer because that answer, whatever it is, could potentially bring down the whole scam.
I have some ideas, and you probably do as well, but why doesn’t anyone (who could actually do something about it) ever seem to want the answer.
Or, do they know, and they don’t want us to know!
From the UK Express:
‘Italy has caused a MELTDOWN’ 700,000 migrants waiting to cross into Europe from Libya
A BOTTLENECK of 700,000 migrants is waiting in Libya to cross the Mediterranean to Europe, the National Crime Agency has said. The number – greater than the population of Leicester – highlights the difficulties facing the EU in controlling migrants seeking a new life in Europe.
Senior members of the NCA, dubbed Britain’s FBI, revealed the figures as they detailed the increasingly tough battle they face to stop people smugglers.
NCA directors warned of a sharp rise in attempted illegal sea crossings from Africa to Europe this year, with 300 people drowning last week.
Migrants are then crossing Europe and using increasingly devious ways to evade detection, including hiding in “coffin-sized” secret compartments in vehicles.
Tom Dowdall, NCA deputy director of organised immigration crime, said the problem was growing. Attempted crossings to Greece and Turkey are up by 47 per cent on last year, with those to Spain and Italy up by 75 per cent.
They have not reached the peak levels of 2015, caused after Mrs Merkel made a controversial decision to open Germany’s borders and allow a million refugees in.
Mr Dowdall said: “The activity by the Italian Republic has caused a meltdown in Libya, creating a bottleneck. There are about 700,000 migrants in Libya and this is making it more difficult for them to move out.”
Chris Hogben, NCA head of operations for organised immigration crime, said rescue boats manned by non-governmental organisations were inadvertently aiding people smugglers.
The NGOs are supposed to rescue people once they are more than 12 miles from the Libyan coast, but come in much closer, he said.
He said: “They make it easier for the crime groups who now send a boat with not enough fuel on purpose as they know they will be picked up.”
The main sources for migrants into Europe are Libya, Ethiopia, Sudan, Niger and Afghanistan. Mr Dowdall said that smugglers collectively make up to £6billion a year charging would-be migrants.
A single boat from Africa to Europe can net them up to £300,000 [roughly $397,000—ed].
What happened to investigative reporting? How do poor Africans have that kind of money????
