After all, they are dancing in Mogadishu again (we learned that from reader ‘riveratlantic’)! The Netherlands and Denmark are planning to refuse more Somali ‘asylum seekers’ and the new President of Somalia told Somalis in America to come on home last month!
It came to a head over a broken toilet!
A group of Somali illegal alien/asylum seekers on the tiny island of Malta stormed to the police station to say that they had been evicted from a ‘center’ where they were being housed until their asylum claims could be processed.
Before I get to the toilet destruction news, remember that we have helped exacerbate Malta’s African illegal alien problem because we (beginning with the Bush State Department) have been transforming the economic migrants flowing across the Mediterranean from Libya into legitimate refugees and bringing them to the US.
Just last month we learned that an attache’ and another employee of the Italian Embassy in Kenya were helping facilitate the flow of Somalis to Malta (for a handsome sum).
Here is the story from the Times of Malta (emphasis mine):
It started with a broken toilet, led to a mass exodus to the Ħamrun police station and ended with a handshake.
A group of 32 Somali men marched to the Ħamrun police station yesterday morning, claiming they had been evicted from Marsa open centre by management for no reason and flashing their centre residence cards in indignation.
But according to centre director Ahmed Bughri, the men were never kicked out and had simply been told that if they did not abide by open centre rules, they could “go live somewhere else”.
The incident came on the back of rising tensions between a Somali contingent and open centre management, stemming from damage done to some of the centre’s newly refurbished toilets and kitchens.
According to Dr Bughri, a small group of residents were systematically dirtying and damaging bathrooms and kitchens at the centre, to the detriment of their own colleagues.
Open centre staff on Monday found that one of the new toilets had been completely broken and knocked onto its side. Dr Bughri fined each of the residents who had a key to the toilet €10, to make up for repairs.
This did not go down well with many of those affected, who say they already live from hand to mouth on the monthly €130 allowance given to them. [I think this is about $170 in US Dollars—-ed]
And matters reached a head yesterday, following an argument between Dr Bughri and one of the fined Somalis.
“I cannot have residents damaging or dirtying facilities and then not doing anything about it,” Dr Bughri said. “We’ve worked hard to improve this open centre and we won’t let it slide back into its previous state.”
He denied evicting the residents and said they had misunderstood his warning to either abide by the rules or leave.
Airlift to Mogadishu anyone?
