While the EU deploys its Frontex anti migrant army and forces the last rescue ships off the seas, while European countries build walls and fences, and fail even to accept even their miserable agreed quotas of refugees. While Greece and Spain confine them on small islands. And States like Spain pay off local elites to close borders on desperate would be migrants.

But worst may be Turkey, which has extorted over 5 BILLION euros from the EU to close its borders to refugees (mostly fleeing from the western financed eternal wars in Syria and elsewhere). The Turkish regime benefits 3 times over from the refugees, by also letting them be abused as near slave labour, thus forcing wage decline for all workers, and by using them as a recruiting ground for the Islamic extremist mercenaries it uses in Syria, Rojava, Libya, Armenia …

At least 39 more immigrants die when two boats sink off Tunis

At least 39 migrants were killed when two vessels sank off Tunis on Tuesday while trying to cross the Mediterranean to the Italian island of Lampedusa, the Tunisian Defense Ministry said.

In 2019, some 90 African immigrants drowned when their boat sank off the coast of Tunisia after leaving for Europe from neighboring Libya, in one of the worst disasters of its kind that Tunisian authorities have ever faced.

The number of Tunisian immigrants landing on Italian shores increased fivefold to 13,000 in 2020, said a human rights group, which attributed the increase to economic difficulties in Tunisia.

En 2019, unos 90 inmigrantes africanos se ahogaron cuando su embarcación se hundió frente a la costa de Túnez después de partir hacia Europa desde la vecina Libia, en uno de los peores desastres de este tipo a los que han tenido que enfrentarse las autoridades tunecinas.

El número de inmigrantes tunecinos que aterrizan en costas italianas se quintuplicó a 13.000 en 2020, dijo un grupo de derechos humanos, que atribuyó el aumento a las dificultades económicas en Túnez.
