State of ‘Collapse’: Italy Overwhelmed as 13,500 African Migrants Arrive in Past Two Days


#1

Italy’s migrant welcome centers are in a state of “collapse” as huge waves of African migrants take advantage of the temperate climate to make the crossing from Libya to the Italian peninsula.

On Tuesday, 8,500 African migrants are reaching Italian shores aboard 14 different ships, adding to the 5,000 who arrived on Monday. The massive arrivals have led local media as well as politicians to speak of an authentic immigrant “invasion” exceeding the country’s capacity of assimilation.

Officials reported on June 15 that more than 65,000 migrants had arrived since the beginning of the year, but that was prior to the latest influx. Figures for the year now stand at 73,380 migrants into Italy, or a rise of 14.42 percent over the same period in 2016, when then-record arrivals had reached 64,133.

The exodus from Libya to the Italian coast has continuing unabated with no visible action on the part of the Italian government or the European Union to halt it.

The illegal immigrants who reach the Libyan coast from all parts of Africa (most recently, from the West), embark in the Mediterranean on makeshift boats. The majority of these are picked up either by NGOs or humanitarian organizations or official Italian Coast Guard or naval vessels.

Despite their intention to travel up through Italy into northern Europe, the vast majority of migrants end up remaining in Italy, mostly because the northern borders with France, Switzerland and Austria are closely watched.

Italy’s migrant welcome centers - I had to repeat that out loud a couple of times.

When I want to travel to Italy, I have to hold a valid US Passport and pass through Italian customs at the airport. If I am not cleared through customs for whatever reason that customs decide, I don’t get to enter Italy and must return home. If I am allowed to enter the country, I am not housed, fed, and transported at the expense of the Italian taxpayer. I do all of those things for myself. When in the country, I respect the people that I meet and follow the laws. I even have to turn over my Passport at the hotel as that is the custom.

Migrants break all of the rules and get rewarded for it.

They aren’t refugees they’re immigrants… immigrating for a free ride. And why are there still so few women and children in those pictures? Pussy cowardly men leave them behind for ISIS? Good luck with that Italy you’re going to need it.

Here is a better picture than the one in the article. EU men are beyond cucked. I hope that they look at this picture and realize that these men will soon be raping their women while they sit around and do nothing about it.

They should be lighting up the beaches like the Nazis did in Normandy.

Italy used to turn them away, Germany was so enraged by their shipment of BBC not reaching their population that they fined Italy. Italy still turned them away, so Germany fined them more. In the end Italy decided to take them in, and let them pass into Germany and northern Europe. Luckily for Italy, very few stay because there are no gibs and the general attitude towards them is negative, why would they want to stay there instead of going to Germany or Sweden where they can rape some blondes and get paid for it?
