Invasion of Europe news……
You have probably seen all of the news this week from Calais, France where illegal aliens who got into Europe elsewhere are piled up looking to get into the UK where they think they will get the most social service benefits. BTW, legitimate asylum seekers are supposed to ask for asylum in the first safe country in which they arrive. Asylum shopping is what is happening here.
From the International Business Times:
After thousands of migrants made repeated attempts to storm the Channel Tunnel that connects the French port of Calais with Britain this week, politicians and newspapers in the country have begun talking tough. Whether British authorities can match the determination of migrants, many of whom have endured dangerous, months-long journeys in their quest to reach England, however, remains uncertain.
Over 3,500 attempts have been made by migrants, many of whom are from countries in Africa, the Middle East and central Asia, to enter the tunnel this week. The deployment of French riot police, armed with pepper spray, dogs and batons, has not succeeded in stopping the attempts, though on Wednesday, the latest day for which data is available, only 300 people were reported to have tried to access the tunnel, down from 1,500 each of the previous two nights.
A Sudanese man died on Wednesday, after being hit by a truck that transports vehicles through the tunnel, French police said, according to Reuters. French media said he was the ninth migrant to be killed in the crisis since early June.
Prime Minister David Cameron warned migrants Thursday that the U.K. was “no safe haven,” for them, adding that illegal immigrants would be removed from the country. Earlier in the week, he described the thousands of migrants gathered in Calais as a “swarm,” prompting angry condemnation from rights groups and opposition politicians.
I am continually amazed that our so-called leaders, especially the Republicans, don’t see what is happening in Europe and know that we are headed down the same path. Do you think that some Romans saw the fall of Rome in advance?
