The migrant crisis in the Mediterranean, in Calais and other places is an invasion and the people of Europe would want to wake up and take decisive action before it is too late. The biggest mistake the EU made was to place ships in the middle of the Mediterranean in order to pick up migrants and take them to Italy. If they know that there are ships waiting to pick them up half way across, then that will only encourage more migrants to try to get to Europe. The borders of Europe need to be closed and sealed as a matter of extreme urgency.
The lefties, the liberals and the bleeding heart dogooders want to let them all in, but the reality is that Europe has let in more than its share of migrants and enough is enough. Many of the above talk about the benefits of immigration, but the reality is that mass immigration only drives down wages for ordinary working people and puts an enormous strain on public services. The USA is the most unequal society in the western world and it also takes in the most immigrants. Europe needs to wake up and take action to preserve its way of life and culture before its too late.
