Malta takes another 44 migrants from ship Italy refused

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 21, 2018

But, there is something you, Americans, need to know about Malta.

Before giving Malta ‘high-fives’ for humanitarian zeal, consider this:

The European island nation has been sending its excess migrants to the US ever since the George W. Bush administration in what is a possibly illegal maneuver by our US State Department.

Malta is a safe European country and anyone who gets there seeking asylum is their problem, not ours!

The practice of sending a few hundred to Yourtown, USA has been going on for years. Although the numbers are down under President Donald Trump, we are still taking some.

First here is the latest from the European migration crisis.

From France 24:

Malta takes migants after Italy stand-off

 

VALLETTA (AFP) –
Migrants rescued at sea by a merchant vessel are being taken to Malta after two days in limbo following Italy’s refusal to accept them, the Maltese armed forces said Wednesday.

Malta ship

So where will this group of 44 Africans be resettled?

The Just Fitz III plucked 44 migrants from a rickety wooden boat late Monday after they ran into difficulty during the perilous crossing from North Africa.

The Marshall Islands-flagged vessel, which had been headed to Tunisia, was diverted to help the migrants as they floundered some 60 nautical miles south of the Italian island of Lampedusa, in Malta’s search and rescue zone.

Valletta said those rescued at sea should be taken to the nearest safe port, on Lampedusa.

But Italy’s new and hardline interior minister Matteo Salvini, the head of the far-right League, has vowed to stop migrant arrivals.

“Following the refusal of Italy to provide for the nearest place of safety, shelter and logistical support to the ship and in view of deteriorating weather conditions affecting the area,” Malta agreed to take the migrants, the army said.

An offshore patrol vessel picked up the migrants from the Just Fitz III and was expected to disembark them on Malta late Wednesday.

The Malta to US express!

Ambitious readers might want to have a look at my Malta archive, here, which I have been building for over ten years.

See here, that even in Trump’s first full year in office we are still bringing ‘refugees’ from the safe country of Malta.  We ‘welcomed’ 128 migrants from Malta in FY18.  We are not told where they were placed in the US.

And note that there were 93 cases for the 128 migrants which tells us they were mostly single people (probably single men)!

Migrants and asylum seekers who make their way to Europe are not our problem.

We have enough problems with fake asylum seekers coming to our borders.

Surely Malta isn’t going to step up and say we will take a few of those Hondurans off your hands!  Not in a million years!

If he knew this was happening, Trump could stop the Malta to Yourtown express with a phone call.

  1. Would it be possible to send the refugees to both Djibouti and Zambia? Both Djibouti and Zambia are praised for accepting refugees. Here are the links:

    Anyways, there would be nothing wrong by forwarding the refugees to Djibouti and Zambia instead of USA. Plus the refugees could bring diversity to those places. I would also recommend bringing the Central American refugees to both Djibouti and Zambia too. Actually Djibouti and Zambia have lower rates of homeless than cities like Los Angeles or NYC.

    This is all clearly madness. We’ve built a wonderful country and have every right to demand vetting to the Nth degree of those wishing to benefit from our great generosity. Instead, stunted soft-bodied virtue signaling Marxists have ushered in migrant after migrant who refuses to assimilate much less conduct themselves in any manner showing appreciation or understanding that their citizenship is literally one in a million.

    People may say:: “Oh what’s another 44 people”? Well it’s 44 too many because then the migrants will see that as an invitation+ from Italy to send more ! Nations can’t be lax about this ! They have to show that “NO MORE”!, means NO MORE !
