'Biblical Exodus' : Thousands of Tunisians Arrive in Italy

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Thousands of would-be immigrants have swamped the tiny island of Lampedusa, a part of Italy but located just 150 kilometers (93 miles) from the North African country.

In the past five days, more than 5,000 Tunisians have inundated the 20 square-kilometer island, with around 1,100 refugees reaching the shore on Saturday night alone in what Italian Interior Minster Roberto Maroni has described as a "biblical exodus." Some have been forced to wait on the pier in the cold winter weather, while others are in makeshift emergency shelters.

...

On Sunday, the Tunisian government rejected a proposal from Rome to send Italian police officers to North Africa to stem the human tidal wave.

Government spokesman Taieb Baccouche told the al-Arabiya TV station that the Italian request was "unacceptable." "The Tunisian people reject the deployment of foreign soldiers on our territory," he said, before insisting that the Tunisian authorities would retain control of the coast.

...

Interior Minister Maroni warned that possible terrorists and al-Qaida supporters as well as common criminals could be hiding amidst the wave of refugees.

Maybe they just want healthcare? If they just let them come and go to the doctor they will go back. It can be good for the local economy.

I have a solution. Relocate Italian citizens off the island and sell it to Tunisia.
