Italy’s New African Invasion Crisis
The closing of the Swiss border to the hordes of Africans pouring into Italy across the Mediterranean has sparked a new crisis for Italy—with at least 144,210 of them now “stranded” in that country.
According to the European Union border protection agency Frontex, the number of Africans who invaded Italy in July 2016 stood at 25,300, an increase of 12 percent compared to July 2015.
Switzerland—the preferred invasion route to get to Germany—has adopted a policy of turning back all those nonwhite invaders who do not lodge an asylum request in Switzerland.
The Africans, however, all want to take advantage of Angela Merkel’s open borders policy, and have little or no interest in stopping in Switzerland.
As a result, tens of thousands have been clogging up northern Italy, turning border areas into massive camps and trashing the region.
In Austria, a government spokesman told local media that it was now “just a matter of time before thousands of Africans break through the Italian border and take an alternative route to Germany, via the Brenner Pass and Tyrol”—through Austria.
The Austrian government, the spokesman continued, is keenly aware that if tens of thousands of Africans move into Austria and try and seek admission to Germany, it is unlikely that the Germans will be able to take them.
