….maybe they are here to see how to get more of their people across our border!
This is not a joke, this is not a Saturday Night Live skit, but it will make you chuckle on several levels.
First, they say they are here to learn from us—the experts—on how best to secure their borders. And, my question is are they trying to keep illegal immigrants out of Libya, or their own people in, because Libya has been the jumping off point for Africans (Libyans and others) trying to get to Malta* or Italy and to the rest of Europe.
Apparently invited by the Obama Administration, here is the story and video report (hat tip: Gary, who knows the Texas border well):
WESLACO – Members of the Libyan government were in the Rio Grande Valley to learn about the way the United States secures its borders.
More than a dozen Libyan officials toured Valley ports of entry this week. They said Libya faces some of the same problems with drug smuggling, weapons smuggling and illegal immigration.
The Libyans said that, contrary to United States, their borders have little security.
They said 3,000 miles of border separate Libya from six other countries. Their borders are open, with no natural or manmade barriers. Their borders have no ports of entry or checkpoints.
They came to the Valley to learn how Customs and Border Protection officers stop drug smugglers, human traffickers and illegal immigrants.
Members of the delegation said they need more resources and training to secure their borders.
What do you want to bet that Obama is about to give them the “resources.” It’s O.K. for Libya to want to secure its borders while the US border is still a sieve and the Democrats cry foul when some of us want to secure it even further.
Watch for it! US tax dollars to Libya for border security!
Libya’s history with illegal immigrants and allowing them to embark from Libyan ports has been a long one. During Gaddaffi’s reign he turned the spigot of “refugees” leaving Libya on and off at his whim, but in years leading up to his getting the heave-ho from Obama and friends, he had tried to stem the tide of migrants launching from Libya.
Then when the ‘beautiful’ Arab Spring began (thanks to Obama and Hillary) the flow began in earnest and many died in vessels attempting to carry immigrants across the Mediterranean Sea to Europe. As a matter of fact, Libyan “refugees” are still dying as this article from last month highlights.
Also, as the racist Arab rebels consolidated power in Libya after the fall of Gaddaffi, we have many posts here reporting on the treatment of black Africans in Libya (here is just one on the subject where Hillary slaps the rebels’ wrists).
The Arab Spring created tens of thousands of additional refugees running for their lives. The Arab Libyans do not like blacks and I suspect that is the real reason behind their desire to close their borders to the rest of Africa (I doubt that guns and drugs are foremost on their minds). It’s those low-life blacks (Muslim or not) that the Muslim Arabs hate.
* For new readers: We have paid special close attention to Malta for over 5 years now, as the US continues to take illegal immigrants who arrive on Malta to the US as refugees. Reader Charles sent us this article just a week ago today. Look at the video clip associated with the Texas article above which shows a map of the region—the island of Malta is in a direct line from Libya. These African illegal aliens now on the way to America, surely launched from Libya.
From the Times of Malta:
20 migrants from Somalia, Eritrea and Sudan, all single adult men, except for a family of four and one couple, have left Malta for the US under the US Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP). On arrival, they will be assisted by NGOs in the USA to proceed to their final destinations in various states.
This latest departure brings the total of beneficiaries of international protection who were resettled to the United States from Malta since 2007 to 1,118 migrants. Since the start of the USRRP in 2008, the number of beneficiaries of protection resettled to the United States amounts to 1,090.
307 migrants have been resettled from Malta to the United States of America since the beginning of this year.
15 more of Malta’s illegal aliens came to the US the week before that! Here, thanks to Charles. This precedent-setting practice of taking off Malta’s hands some of its economic migrants began in the Bush Administration and was instigated by Jesuits in Malta with the help of a succession of US Ambassadors to the country. Legitimate refugees are to seek asylum in the first safe country in which they arrive. There isn’t supposed to be this ‘pass through’ ticket to the US. This is the European Union’s problem, not ours!
How about if we tell our “friends” running Libya now to stop the boats from launching as a first step in their border security!
