    Salvini said on his Facebook page: “Two more ships with the flag of the Netherlands, Lifeline and Seefuchs, have arrived off the coast of Libya, waiting for their load of human beings abandoned by the smugglers. These gentlemen know that Italy no longer wants to be complicit in the business of illegal immigration, and therefore will have to look for other ports [not Italian]where to go.” About the Islamisation of Italy the leader of the Lega party said: “We are under attack. Our culture, society, traditions and way of life are at risk. The colour of one’s skin has nothing...

    taly and France have jointly expressed support for EU "asylum centres" to be set up in countries where many migrants begin their journeys to Europe. Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte and French President Emmanuel Macron met in Paris after a days-long row over the fate of the rescue ship Aquarius. Italy had refused to accept the vessel, carrying more than 600 African migrants, diverting it to Spain. Mr Conte and Mr Macron have now agreed the current system must be reformed. Mr Macron proposed building migration centres in countries of departure, including Libya, from which many people attempt a dangerous...
  • Nicaraguans flood migration offices in bid to flee crisis

    Managua (AFP) – One evening as she watched some local kids play outside in her Managua neighborhood, Nicaraguan Mireya Alegria was shocked to see police, motorcycles and a white van carrying hooded men speed past. “They started firing,” she says. It was the moment she decided enough was enough. Now Alegria is one of the thousands of Nicaraguans desperately seeking to process migration documents and flee to neighboring Central American countries, as two months of anti-government dissent has triggered increasingly violent state repression. “Thousands of people come daily to do paperwork,” said Nubia Manzanares, a migration agent, adding that many...

    There has been a vast, largely unheralded migration in the U.S. over the past decade. Not because of weather, or amenities. But because of taxes. Recently, Wallet Hub published a list of states ranked by their tax burden, based on property taxes, income taxes and sales taxes as a share of personal income. The five states that impose the biggest tax burden on their residents are, in order: New York, Hawaii, Maine, Vermont and Minnesota. The five states with the lowest tax rates: Alaska, Delaware, Tennessee, Florida and New Hampshire. Right away there are some obvious similarities between the groups....

    Schools across Sweden have increased security, including hiring security guards, after a rise in violence towards teachers. According to a new survey, 70 per cent of Swedish municipalities have installed security cameras and hired security guards as teachers are finding themselves increasingly threatened by both their students as well as parents, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports. Sabina Bellanius, a teacher at a school in the heavily migrant populated city of Malmö and the city’s Ombudsman’s Teachers’ Association head, said: “It’s abusive discrimination, psychological and physical violence. I have a colleague that tried to separate a brawl but got his knee knocked...

    A video has emerged showing an Arab youth attacking two Jewish men in broad daylight on the streets of Berlin on Tuesday. The attack happened at around 8 pm on Tuesday evening in the Prenzlauer Berg district, police report. The two Jewish men, who were reportedly wearing kippas, were verbally attacked by a group of three youths, who used anti-Semitic epithets against them. One youth then emerged from the group of three young men and attacked a 21-year-old Israeli with his belt, while shouting “Jew” at him. The victims of the attack were able to record footage of it on...

    Quebec warned the federal government on Monday that it has reached the limit of its capacity process undocumented asylum seekers entering Canada through Quebec and will enforce that limit in its temporary shelters beginning April 24. Quebec has 1,850 spaces in its four temporary shelters in Montreal, and 75 per cent of those spaces are already occupied. Quebec Immigration Minister David Heurtel said Monday that capacity will not be allowed to pass 85 per cent in order to maintain space and resources to accommodate those asylum seekers who used regular channels to enter the country. The number of undocumented asylum...

    Probably one of the most lucid articles on the takeover by Muslims (Moslims) in the West. I recommend it: Why are so many Western Christians either silent about, or actually complicit in, the Muslim hegira to the West? One would think Christians would be at the forefront of opposition. Some are, but most are not, and these latter include Roman Catholics, Anglicans, Lutherans, mainline “Protestants,” and evangelicals in America. These churches have made four claims... ...Samuel Huntington, too, understood this. In his Clash of Civilizations (1996) he wrote, “The underlying problem for the West is not Islamic fundamentalism but Islam,...

    Human footprints found off Canada's Pacific coast show people were living there 13,000 years ago at the end of the most recent Ice Age, scientists have found. The footprints, which are the only ones ever found from this time around Canada's Pacific coast, belong to at least three different individuals. The incredible prints could have captured the moment these individuals disembarked from their boat for the first time before moving to drier areas. Digital photographic studies have revealed that the footprints probably belonged to two adults and a child, all barefoot.

    If you’ve ever lived in a small town or city, these new census figures will not surprise you:More Americans, especially retirees, are moving to small towns for the safer, cleaner, more affordable life. Even those younger Gen X types who put off families for the bright lights of the big city are moving out of there, usually to suburbs.One major reason for urban flight is the rising cost of housing, which if you’re paying rent, is like burning money. City populations are still growing slightly but much less than before and mainly because of immigrant arrivals. In the last...

    A growing homelessness crisis. Complaints about traffic congestion. Worries that the economy is becoming dominated by a wealthy elite. Those sound like California’s problems in a nutshell. But now they are also among California’s leading exports. Just ask the citizens of this city, where growing numbers of Californians and companies like Tesla have migrated to take advantage of cheap land and comparatively low home prices. A four-hour drive from Silicon Valley, across a mountain range and a state line, Reno is finding that imported growth is accompanied by imported problems.

    Far-left activists and illegal migrants invaded the Basilica of Saint-Denis on Sunday to protest the French government’s new asylum law before they were forcibly removed by police, resulting in evening mass being cancelled. Around 80 illegal migrants and far-left activists from the group Coordination des Sans-Papiers (CSP 75) protested the new law holding up banners, Le Parisien reports. After around an hour of occupying the Basilica, police were called and arrived to remove the protestors and illegal immigrants. The area was cleared by around 5:30 pm but evening mass was cancelled in case the protestors returned.

    Hungarian leader Viktor Orbán issued a stark warning to the peoples of Europe on his country’s national day, telling them that “Europe is now under invasion”, and that “the empire of George Soros” is seeking to “break Hungary” for standing in its way. “The situation, Dear Friends, is that there are those who want to take our country from us,” said the conservative heavyweight, whose Fidesz party is heading into national elections in April. “Not with the stroke of a pen, has happened one hundred years ago at Trianon; now they want us to voluntarily hand our country over to...

    here have been three muses in Ramoncito “El Andino” Rodríguez’s life: love, lament and la isla, Puerto Rico. The founder of one of the oldest musical acts here, Rodríguez croons boleros and lyrical anthems that at times quicken the heart and at others create a daydreamy lull. Many of them are homages to his motherland, love songs to this Caribbean island. It was a place he never wanted to leave. But leave, he did.

    Does the changing political climate affect population migration between states? Of course, it does, but how? What if we were to express the movement of intra-American migration, not in words, but in the language of numbers? A convenient measure of internal migration could be the U-Haul Index. If the number of orders for trucks at both destinations is the same, then U-Haul has no problems. If the number of orders is not the same, then U-Haul must hire drivers to relocate the empty trucks, and then pay to transport these drivers back. In this case, the prices for traffic will...

    An estimated 90 migrants are feared to have drowned off the coast of Libya after a smuggler’s boat capsized early on Friday, leaving three known survivors and 10 bodies washed up on shore, the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) said. Survivors told aid workers that most of the migrants on board were Pakistanis, who form a growing group heading to Italy from North Africa, IOM spokeswoman Olivia Headon said. “They have given an estimate of 90 people who drowned during the capsize, but we still need to verify the exact number of people who lost their lives during the tragedy,”...

    Just a month ago, as friends and families prepared to gather for the holiday season, the men and women at the U.S. Census Bureau were busy releasing their latest annual estimates of population changes across the United States. With the hustle and bustle of the season, many Americans missed the important new data. The new census estimates detail how states have grown since the last full census in 2010. The estimates provide some fascinating insight on what we can expect from the quickly approaching 2020 Census.

    Subway drivers are refusing to stop at some stations in Paris because of a surge in violent crime at some stops, it has emerged. Frightened drivers say they are not calling at certain stations in the French capital's north east in order to 'protect passengers' and themselves. Some stations are increasingly being used by crack dealers, they say, with Marx Dormoy on line 12 and Marcadet-Poissonniers on lines 12 and 4 said to be among the worst hit.

    First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has announced the government is working to change the narrative around migration to persuade Scots that the nation needs huge numbers of people from abroad. Speaking at the launch of a Scottish government paper which argues for continuing open borders with Europe after Britain’s exit from the European Union (EU), the SNP leader claimed a population that is ever-expanding as a result of mass migration is “essential to our economic prosperity”.

    United Nations (United States) (AFP) - Governments that crack down on migrants are only harming themselves, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned Thursday ahead of UN talks on a global response to migration boycotted by the United States. Guterres presented a report to the General Assembly on ways to address the plight of the 258 million international migrants, some of whom are trapped in legal limbo. "Authorities that erect major obstacles to migration - or place severe restrictions on migrants' work opportunities - inflict needless economic self-harm," Guterres said. "They impose barriers to having their labor needs met in an orderly,...
