It’s Been Tried Before

     Several times, really…and it hasn’t worked, ever:

     Days after closing a deal with Albania to hold part of the migrant flood there while awaiting asylum processing, Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni is trying to limit the number of arrivals in the first place, by a new partnership with Africa.

     She unveiled a long-awaited plan to ‘boost economic ties, create an energy hub for Europe and curb immigration’.

     More than two dozen African leaders attended the one-day summit, where Meloni outlined a series of initiatives with an initial pledge of 5.5 billion euros ($5.95 billion).

     Meloni called the summit a success, that ‘produced many areas of potential cooperation, particularly with regards to energy’.

     The superpowers have all tried to accelerate African economic development. Corruption and inter-tribal hatreds have killed every previous attempt. Why does this obviously bright and well-intentioned woman believe that she and Italy can succeed where others have failed? Has she already bought into the “government can do anything” mindset?

     Illegal immigration can be held down to a trickle by energetic and unforgiving enforcement of a nation’s borders. Nothing else has ever succeeded to any degree. The approach with the slightest prospect of success is to throw money at it…but I’m not telling the Gentle Readers of Liberty’s Torch anything they don’t already know. We’ve seen both approaches tried in the United States, and the one that worked is the one the Biden Regime has done its utmost to thwart. There’s a lot of information in that.

    The solution is simple but I admit the political implication is difficult.  Treat all the migrants as invaders and use the military to capture and imprison them.  House them in a derelict ship anchored off shore and once a week offer them free transportation back to the place they embarked from or in the case of overland migrants where they crossed into the country in question.

    There is a way. Capture the boats. Sell the occupants in the open-air slave markets in Libya. Watch that pipeline dry up.

  1. I would sink every NGO boat who is initiating and assisting in this invasion. A torpedo through the illegal alien assistance vessels would do wonders for clarifying the situation.
