Comment worth noting: Reader from Malta says betrayal must be exposed

This morning in response to my post on Malta a few hours ago a reader from Malta has sent us further information that I think is so important it shouldn’t be lost in the comments section of that post.

From Charles Sammut:

Please allow me to make a few observations about this article.

Libya is not the terrorist hellhole it is made out to be for the sake of political expediency. It might have been in the past, but is now busily tapping the tourism market and is a perfectly safe place to visit, probably more so that certain areas of the USA.

Some of these illegal immigrants have been in Libya for many years, even 10 years, working and earning a decent wage to save money to get their whole family to Zuwarah (a port in north western Libya) and pay for the boat trip to Malta or Italy. This has now stopped thanks to Italian Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi and his interior minister, Maroni. Boats are turned back to Libya, no ifs and no buts. Libyan coast guard vessels also carry Italian military personnel on board.

The traitorous US ambassador, Kmiec is back in Malta. He was responsible for the death of both his passengers.The nun died on the spot and the 94 year old Monsignor died after 3 weeks (here).

Like his predecessor,Molly Bordinaro, this character, Kmiec, has a soft spot for African illegal immigrants. Molly even sent that Congolese criminal rapper Akon in the ambassador’s official Mercedes limousine to entertain the illegal immigrants (here). Good to know how your tax money is being spent.

Kmiec is busy relocating Somalis to the USA. I mean, with people like this, who needs Al Qaeda?

The Jesuit Refugee Service in Malta receives hundreds of thousands of tax free Euros from the EU for the service it supposedly provides to illegal immigrants (here).

On the JRS Malta website you can find detailed instructions on how an illegal immigrant should apply for asylum so as to avoid rejection. Since this is considered ‘philantropic work’, the JRS is exempted from paying income tax. It is simply a convenient way of diverting profits from other lucrative Jesuit businesses to avoid tax.

It is good to know that the immigration policy regarding illegal immigrants is mostly dictated by a Catholic Monsigneur, Philip Calleja. I have personally seen illegal immigrants at the immigration office telling immigration officers that Mons.Calleja told you to do this or that. He is known to help illegal immigrants to leave the island illegally and supports this policy (here).

I could go on for ages. This is big business, up there with drugs and weapons running. The biggest profiteers from this are the Catholic Church and the leftist unions. Note that the General Workers’ Union (GWU) also receives EU funds to ironically help illegals undercut its own union members’ wages. The betrayal is total. We must expose it.

Mr. Sammut, you can go on for ages here!  Please feel free to send us whatever you have to further expose what is happening in Malta. 

Readers, this isn’t just about Malta and Europe, this is about setting a terrible precedent regarding immigration law—ultimately driven by Far Left activists (hiding under a humanitarian cover) who are working to create a borderless world using your money to accomplish their Socialist/Marxist political aims!

Endnote:  You know what puzzles me the most?  Are Bordonaro and Kmiec just naive dupes trying ever so hard to be loved (and appear not racist), or are they true believers—Leftists hiding in Republican garb?  Guesses anyone?


LA Times reports on Malta but misses the important point

Update:  A reader from Malta comments, here.

Longtime readers know that we have followed the so-called refugee situation in Malta for several years.  The tiny island nation in the Mediterranean is, unfortunately for them, a landing place for illegal aliens (are they truly asylum seekers or economic migrants?) coming in boats from North Africa often from that terrorism hellhole known as Libya.

On Saturday I see the Los Angeles Times has a report on the situation that begins with your usual sympathetic character—a Somali chemistry teacher (or so he says, LOL! wonder what sort of chemistry he was teaching) who is now stuck in limbo in Malta.

The LA Times:

As a member of the European Union, Malta is obligated to grant asylum to individuals who qualify, but the country maintains one of the strictest detention policies in Europe. Migrants who enter illegally can be held up to 18 months while their cases are processed; the Somali teacher’s story is not uncommon.

Most asylum seekers who end up in Malta on boats from Libya are trying to go farther north to Italy, where they believe there are job opportunities and where some hope to be granted asylum. Many are hoping to avoid detention and slip over the border toward northern Europe.

“Nobody was planning on coming to Malta,” the teacher said. “We all bought new clothes for when we landed in Italy so we could just go and disappear.”  [just disappear!—telling comment]

An increase in illegal immigration [note even the Times knows they are illegal aliens—ed] has led countries such as Malta and Italy to boost coordination with Libya in search and rescue operations as well as with the signing of several agreements to crack down on smuggling networks.

What is the Los Angeles Times missing?

The Times is not reporting a critical element of the story—maybe reporter Meris Lutz doesn’t know about it.   A couple of years ago a Bush Administration Ambassador to Malta set a new precedent.   In 2008 some illegal aliens arriving in Malta were transformed into refugees and sent to resettle in a town near you.  Legitimate asylum seekers are to seek asylum in the first safe country in which they arrive.  Ambassador Molly Bordonaro helped to subtly change that long standing policy (apparently with much internal angst in the State Department).  See this early post on the issue in which Molly (and the US State Department) sent Somalis off to Colorado with a  tea party (a real tea party, not the new kind of Tea Party) send-off.   The tea party-feted Somali was quoted as saying he was happy to be going to Colorado because lots of “black people” lived there.

Many feared, and rightly so, that the new policy would attract African illegal aliens to Malta not as a stop-over to Europe, but as a possible opportunity to win the lottery, so to speak, and get to the US.  See my post which confirms that here.

The Obama Administration Ambassador to Malta has continued the same policy.  Douglas Kmiec, one of those despised ‘Republicans for Obama’ in the last presidential election has continued that policy, here.   Incidentally, Kmiec was the driver of a car in California that went off the road resulting in the death of a nun and the serious injury of a priest who were riding in Kmiec’s car.  I don’t know if Kmiec is back in Malta yet after that August accident. 

Note the LA Times does mention the Jesuit Refugee Service office in Malta which I believe has played a key role in helping create the new policy of transforming illegal aliens into refugees bound for the US.
