Just 18 months ago, I was sitting on the steps of the train station in Como, Italy. I was on holiday in the breathtaking Swiss city of Lugano, and had taken a day trip across the border to visit the hallowed retreat of ‘refugee’ super cheerleader, George Clooney, and other Hollywood elites. Lake Como and the surrounding scenery did not disappoint, but the town itself was a stark contrast to its Swiss-Italian neighbor. The empty buildings, dirty trains, and generally deflated atmosphere reminded me that we were in a PIIGS country, with an imploding economy, and high unemployment.
Now, Como has a new set of problems – one that is quickly turning the city into a nightmare: African welfare hounds, i.e. ‘refugees,’ attempting to continue their nearly-unabated journeys to self-destructing E.U. states who will lavish them with cash, housing, food, and other goodies, like Germany, where they refer to themselves as ‘Angela Merkel’s guests.’
Enjoying your European vacation? Tourists visiting Lake Como are forced to step over migrants at the train station rather than mingle with the Clooneys as up to 500 are sent back to Italy from Switzerland.
Swiss authorities have effectively shut their border to asylum seekers forcing the men, women and children to sleep out in the beautiful Italian town.
Prior to June, would-be asylum seekers could board a train in Como and cross the border into Switzerland and seek refuge.
Now, they are stuck and local politicians fear the situation is getting worse.
In July, Swiss authorities expelled 4,149 people, a figure nearly four times greater than the previous monthly high since 2014. Most were Eritreans, while many others were from Nigeria, Ethiopia and Gambia. Border guard spokesman Attila Lardori said over 60 percent had expressed a desire to pass through Switzerland to reach Germany.
This is the difference between a nation that defends its borders, its economy, and its laws, and one that does not.
Since when do ‘refugees’ have cell phones, functioning international SIM cards, and mountain bikes?
These are ‘economic migrants’ – and many of them are very dangerous criminals.
In six weeks, I’ll be back in Lugano, but there isn’t a chance I’ll even consider crossing the lake this time. I may even shorten my visit there, in favor of staying in more secure locations. The hell that is the borderless European Union is putting the wiser, self-protective sovereign nations at great risk, and killing the tourism upon which the European economies have long thrived.
It was all so easily preventable, had there been principled leaders defending the interests of their own nations and citizens, rather than those of bankers, globalists, and foreigners.
