Over the past several years, hundreds of thousands of refugees and immigrants from the Middle East, many of which fled the violent civil war in Syria, flooded into European countries.
At the beginning, most countries readily accepted the refugees and migrants and those that didn’t were highly criticized by other nations.
Some of those European countries are regretting their acceptance of the Middle East and North African refugees and migrants.
Crime rates in those countries have skyrocketed, let alone the huge financial cost of helping the refugees and migrants.
One of those counties is Italy, who just passed a tough immigration law that not only prevents more refugees and migrants from entering the country, but it also makes it easier to deport those that are in the country.
(BBC) – The Italian government has passed a decree which will make it easier to deport migrants and strip them of Italian citizenship.
Migrants could now be expelled if they are found guilty of serious crimes such as rape and assault.
Previously, this was only possible at the end of a lengthy appeals process.
Interior Minister Matteo Salvini described the measure as “a step forward to make Italy safer”. The measure needs the backing of lawmakers.
The decree also envisages that asylum seekers accused of drug dealing will have their applications denied, Mr Salvini said…
My friends in Great Britain tell me of the horror stories tied to areas where many refugees and migrants have located.
They tell me of the high crime rates, especially sexual assaults and rapes of British girls and women.
However, they tell me that the British government has become so liberal that they are afraid to do anything about the problem, unlike Italy just did.
Now realize that Obama wanted to welcome tens of thousands of the same type of refugees and migrants into the United States without vetting them or taking into consideration what they were doing in other countries.
