You’d think from the media coverage – and the relative lack of it – that Europe has virtually stopped the flood of illegal immigrants from the Third World.
So far this year, 194,611 migrants have arrived in Europe by sea, including 156,157 by the Aegean route, according to a report Friday by the International Organization for Migration. Some 376 have died along that route, while 1,093 have died in the central Mediterranean, where two boats sank this week off the coast of Libya.
This kind of mass migration will remain a challenge for years.
Meanwhile, here in Australia
Who let them in? Why let in more?
When will we learn from this disastrous consequence of our own Australian refugee program? Have the Australian Greens Party – now proposing to triple our refugee intake – even acknowledged this phenomenon?:
As many as 30 major crime families in Sydney’s southwest are involved in a battle for the city’s multi-billion-dollar drug trade that has sparked a series of shootings and murders, and police warn that they are expanding their influence interstate and internationally.
Many of the crime families have a Middle Eastern heritage, particularly Lebanese. The commander of the NSW Middle East Organised Crime Squad, Peter McErlain, said: “I think the east coast is predominantly where we see the Middle Eastern organised crime flourishing.”
