Italy: See why the Italians are so ticked-off

Invasion of Europe news…..

France has admitted that it ‘mistakenly’ dropped a couple of African migrants (supposedly minors) off into Italy.  See earlier story.

Since it is directly on the Mediterranean, Italy gets the brunt of the migrant invasion while France plays the phony welcoming holier-than-thou nation (along with Germany) in the EU.

 

Macron and Salvini angry
French President Macron says he is the main opponent of the European nationalists represented by Italy’s Matteo Salvini

 

The row between France and Italy continued yesterday in the wake of the latest border incident.

From The Express:

Matteo Salvini accuses France of forcing unaccompanied child migrants back to Italy

 

ITALY’S far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has accused France of pushing two unaccompanied child migrants back into Italy, further straining relations with Paris.

Mr Salvini, the head of Italy’s ultra-conservative League party, said on Twitter: “France tried to send child migrants back to Italy: this happened on October 18, at 10.30pm, but we managed to block the procedure.”

[….]

Tensions between Rome and Paris have reached boiling point in recent months, with Italy’s populist government accusing France and other member states of failing to share the burden of the hundreds of thousands of migrants who have reached Italy by boat since 2013.

While French President Emmanuel Macron has denounced Italy’s anti-immigrant policies, positioning himself as the “main opponent” to Europe’s nationalists, Mr Salvini has accused him of encouraging illegal immigration and of turning a blind eye to Europe’s migration crisis.

[….]

The head of the Hautes-Alpes region admitted that its police had crossed the border, calling the incursion an honest mistake.

[….]

Mr Salvini, for his part, said on Saturday that extra police officers had been deployed to “control and guard” the shared border.

And, no wonder that Italy is turning back the migrant transport ships!

Thousands of migrants are caught each year trying to enter France and returned to the Italian border.

And, you wonder why Italy has budget problems?

France has sent back to Italy more than 45,000 migrants since January, according to the French interior ministry.

DR Congo tops the list for highest number of refugees resettled in US in FY18

I’ve previously reported that the African country, DR Congo, holds the distinction of being the country sending (at present) the highest number of refugees to US towns and cities.

 

Congolese-refugees (1)
35% of the refugees who entered the US in FY18 were from the DR Congo. The UN wants us to take 50,000 total.

 

Filling Obama’s promise…..

And, I told you that Obama’s State Department promised the United Nations that the US would take 50,000 in total over five years.  We are almost there.

Since that promise was made in 2013 we have resettled 46,041 DR Congolese, placed them in 47 states with Texas being the top ‘welcoming’ state.

This years’ data….

The Refugee Processing Center data for FY18, the year that just closed, will be harder to find by next month, so I thought I should capture the numbers here for future reference.

22,491 total refugees were admitted from October 1, 2017 to September 30, 2018.  Here is where they came from:

Previous posts on the DR Congo are here.  You probably recognize the DR Congo because it has been in the news a lot lately due to an Ebola outbreak there.

The nub of the problem: the African population is rising at an unsustainable rate

I guess you are shouting at your computer screen right now!  DUH! OF COURSE IT IS!

And, frankly, Europe, by allowing itself to be the pressure release valve for that expanding population is actually encouraging even further population growth there and in the Middle East.

Here is a picture worth a thousand words at Quartz.  It is to illustrate an opinion piece entitled:

We need to talk frankly about our rapid population growth in Africa if we want to beat poverty

No kidding and it better be more than talk!

Africans in car

 

You can read the whole thing yourself, but here is one small snip:

Based on current trends, Africa as a whole is projected to double in [population] size by 2050. Between 2050 and 2100, according to the United Nations, it could almost double again.

Once the migrant taxi service is stopped in the Mediterranean, the UN, the EU and African leaders better get to work on the African continent and stop being too chicken to address the population growth there.

By the way, the same goes for the US. Encouraging the flow of refugees from Africa to your US towns does nothing to help Africa get their population under control.

Corruption and bribery alleged in UN refugee office in Sudan

And, the allegations are coming from a humanitarian publication under the UN umbrella.

Why do you care?

Because the UN High Commissioner for Refugees is the first stop for most refugees coming to your towns. (We took 53 from Sudan in the last 7 months). 

This is just more evidence that the US State Department should be cutting the umbilical cord to the United Nations Refugee Program. If we are going to be taking refugees from third world hell holes we should be doing the choosing and the processing without UN ‘help.’

(Don’t miss the chart below showing the UN as the first step in the screening of refugees to be your new neighbors!)

You know this is going on everywhere!

Trump is right! Don’t bring Africa to America

This is an incredible report from Karin McQuillan at American Thinker thanks to reader George for sharing it.

Entitled:

What I Learned in the Peace Corps in Africa: Trump Is Right

It is one woman’s account of a year in Africa in which she describes the huge cultural chasm between African countries and America and she begins with one literal difference that relates to Trump’s supposed s***hole comment.

Africans in Concord
After you read the American Thinker piece, read this that came across my desk at the same time from “welcoming” Concord, NH. The liberal disconnect will be obvious.  http://www.concordmonitor.com/Welcoming-in-Concord-14954581

Three weeks after college, I flew to Senegal, West Africa, to run a community center in a rural town. Life was placid, with no danger, except to your health. That danger was considerable, because it was, in the words of the Peace Corps doctor, “a fecalized environment.”

In plain English: s— is everywhere. People defecate on the open ground, and the feces is blown with the dust – onto you, your clothes, your food, the water. He warned us the first day of training: do not even touch water. Human feces carries parasites that bore through your skin and cause organ failure.

Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that a few decades later, liberals would be pushing the lie that Western civilization is no better than a third-world country. Or would teach two generations of our kids that loving your own culture and wanting to preserve it are racism.

Refugees joyful about going home!

“I am so happy for the chance to return. Even if we face challenges at least we will be in our home country, among our relatives.”

 

going home to Darfur
Halima Ibrahim happy to go home!  http://www.unhcr.org/news/latest/2017/12/5a33b44c4/refugees-fly-home-darfur-security-situation-improves.html

 

The whole UN/US Refugee Admissions Program needs to be redirected to do this: Protect refugees close to their home countries and repatriate them as soon as possible.

The US is too quick to bring (expensive) refugees to the US for PERMANENT resettlement disrupting their cultures and disrupting American towns and cities.

From UNHCR News (Hat tip: Joanne):

SOUTH DARFUR, Sudan – Mother of six Hamila fled insecurity in Darfur a decade ago, seeking safety in the neighbouring Central African Republic, or CAR.

But this week, she was among more than 230 former refugees returning home on a UNHCR flights from a camp near Bambari.

“I am so happy for the chance to return to Sudan, especially for my children,” said Hamila, who had four more children while in exile. “Even if we face challenges at least we will be in our home country, among our relatives.”

Time for a repatriation fund!

It is the humane thing to do!

Now that Donald Trump is in the White House maybe we can go back to the idea a reader presented to us a couple of years ago—-let’s have a repatriation fund for refugees who are unhappy with America and want to go home. 

And, I don’t want to hear from critics who don’t want their money spent for such a fund.  Believe me, the cost of returning them is going to be far less to you than the cost of their dependence on our social services going forward.

The refugees should not be blamed, any blame for their unhappy presence here rests with the Congress, the US State Department, and the contractors whose income depends on paying refugee clients.

There would be one other side benefit to this fund!

It might well show which of the nine contractors*** were doing the worst jobs of helping refugees get resettled. In other words, it could be a gauge of sorts that might highlight the resettlement agencies doing the lousiest work and producing the most unhappy refugees.

*** I try to post the names every day or so of the nine contractors (aka VOLAGs) that monopolize all refugee resettlement in America because every day we have new readers:

NY Times: In FY 2017, record number of Somalis were deported from US to Somalia

Adding more information to the strange story we reported yesterday about an ICE flight to Africa carrying 92 Somalis destined to go home to Somalia but instead did a U-turn and returned to the US after landing in Senegal.

Kim hunter
Minnesota immigration lawyer Kim Hunter talked to the NY Times about her Somali clients.  http://www.kimhunterlaw.com/staff/

The NY Times after many whinny paragraphs devoted to lawyer Kim Hunter, whose clients were on the plane, tells us a few bits of information we didn’t know.

Besides learning that the new government in Somalia is cooperating with the US and that the flight is being returned to Louisiana, here is some useful data:

Many Somali citizens who are in the United States without documentation have been able to stay for years despite deportation orders because Somalia would not grant them the necessary travel documents. Mogadishu, which opened an embassy in Washington in 2015, appears to be cooperating with American officials to accept more of its citizens back.

Even Obama was deporting Somalis!

The number of Somali people being deported from the United States has risen since 2014. During that fiscal year, 65 Somali citizens were removed from the United States. That number jumped to 120 the next year, and 198 the year after that.

Trump administration picks up the pace!

In the fiscal year 2017, 521 Somali citizens were deported, according to the most recent report from ICE. A spokeswoman for the agency said there were five chartered flights to Somalia that year.

Read it all here.

One advantage of this ICE flight mess-up is that we now know about these deportations and so do a whole lot of other people—including those Somalis who are trying to figure out how to illegally enter the US right now.

And, will we see more “undocumented” Somalis headed to Canada via frozen northern Minnesota and North Dakota?
