Unprecedented numbers are risking their lives to reach Europe, and local authorities in coastal communities where they land are struggling to cope. Lizzy Davies reports from Catania while photographer Massimo Sestini accompanied the Italian navy on its rescue missions earlier this month, offering a rare up-close glimpse of the men, women and children who make the dangerous trip to start a new life

Soon and very soon we will be one of them, but where will go to escape. There will be no ‘beacon of hope, or Reagan’s ‘shining city on the hill’ anymore. All will have become third world. Then the communists and social engineers will have achieved their nirvana.

Just read the book The Camp of the Saints and it will be clear. When fiction becomes reality.

According to Save the Children, around 5,840 unaccompanied minors have arrived on the Italian coast this year. Not all of them decide to stay in the system. At a soup kitchen opposite Catania station run by the Catholic charity Caritas, manager Valentina Calí explains that among the people who have called on its services have been “many minors who don’t want to be identified. They avoid being fingerprinted so they don’t have to request asylum in Sicily. They’re running away."

why does this sound familiar? And they all want money. End all foreign aid until these countries get their act together.

While it may sound cruel cutting off or weaning off these nartions that can’t feed themselves is actually a mercy.One must also stop them from coming to developed nations.
The reason its a mercy is because the more you send them, the more children they have and they become even less self sufficient. In other words the problem simply gets larger with each generation.

I'm afraid that it's almost a certainty that your concerns are on target. I am grateful that I won't be around in 20 years, heck, it might be bad as soon as 10 years.

What is worse, they WILL NOT assimilate and they bring their failed social/’religious’ ideas with them to their host country.

They recreate, in their new home, a situation identical to what they just left...THEN they wonder why they remain poor and marginal.

Why you have the rise of anti-EU and anti-globalist parties in Europe.

Nothing has been planned in advance it’s “just a coincidence” it’s happening allover the world at the same time, yea, that’s it, it’s just a coincidence.

AND! AND! AND!

It’s a “spontaneous” response to a video, yea a video caused this “spontaneous” response of third world “refugees” swarming into western developed countries all over the world at the same time.

AND! AND! AND!

It’s all white peoples fault because “white folks greed leaves a world in need” and these refugees want what white folks got.

Want, need, I always get those two mixed up.

Right.

When MY grandparents came to the United States, they were overjoyed to be here to have the opportunities that were available.

They were poor but even poverty HERE was better than what they left and they were glad to be able to work and succeed.

They brought a great deal with them and it was all positive. They wanted to BE American, they wanted to work, they wanted to show their gratitude... they had NO allegiance politically or otherwise, to what they left behind.

The ‘immigrants’ who are here NOW could care less about US citizenship... they retain their hatred for us and only want the benefits of American abundance and generosity... while they continue to HATE us. They bring NOTHING positive to this country

Pick them up, then ship them directly back where they came from and drop them off at the dock.

And you thought we are the only ones who have a problem? Driven by a dumb religion, legions of destitute humans are trying to escape from the cesspool of the Middle East which is mired in strive and conflicts. The best of all is that once they get to their destination they are hell bent on continuing with the same crap they just escaped from, pretty much dictated by their dumb religion. And to top it of they want their new host to conform to their way of thinking. Any way you look at this, it doesn’t look promising, neither does the ending.
