An asylum seeker from the Horn of Africa who did not want to be identified by name sits in a tent camp on the outskirts of Rome that was set up by an aid group.

Barely a week in office, Italy's populist interior minister lost no time in driving home his message: His government will make good on a campaign pledge to swiftly deport 100,000 foreigners from the Mediterranean nation.

The Obama/Merkel plan to remove borders is being rejected worldwide as the idiots in this country lap up fake pictures of children in cages (that one was from Obama deportations). The liberal lemmings could care less about the parents of the children that were killed by illegal aliens that are forever separated from their children.

septic1, still watching all that fake news I see. Italy is off of my places to visit list, and I urge others to join me.

skeptic, the fact that photos showed there were deportations of people apprehended at the border during the Obama years is incompatible with your untrue accusation of an Obama/Merkel plan to remove borders. You made two contradictory statements while calling other people idiots in the same sentence.

Trump often repeats his false claim that we have open borders, ignoring the fact that detainees were returned or deported by the hundreds of thousands during the Obama years and previous administrations going back several decades. Your claim that Obama and Merkel had a plan to remove borders goes beyond Trump's "open borders" fear mongering. How do you suppose Obama and Merkel could remove borders? Where do you suppose Obama and Merkel would dump their borders after they removed them? Would they remove them in the middle of the night and hope nobody would notice they were gone?

Another of Trump's grossly untrue statements was his wild 2016 campaign claim that we don't know how many illegal immigrants are in the US and it could be as high as 30 million. Apparently he pulled that number out of thin air. There's no support for it. Basically he piled one lie on top of another, using his wild 30 million claim to support his wild claim of a YUGE influx from the "open borders" which he wildly claims we have but in reality we don't.
*
Pew Research (among other researchers) estimates the number of illegal immigrants at 11 million, give or take a few hundred thousand. And they report that number is DOWN from a high of over 12 million in 2007, prior to the 2007-2009 Great Recession. The researchers have expressed agreement that Trump's wildly inflated number is preposterous.
But it makes a nice scary story for his fakery-favoring fanatic followers.

I also wouldn’t visit Italy but not because of their stance on unchecked immigration. Popes, emperors, kings and Mussolini wrecked the place over thousands of years. It’s a dumpster fire of millennia of corrupt leadership. Fascism is on the rise there as it is here. I recommend Spain, esp the Basque region, San Sebastián in particular. Spain is taking many of the migrants Italy is turning away - for the moment - but anti immigrant leadership is also gaining ground. Not to mention Basque cuisine is far superior to both Italy and France.

I doubt Italy misses DoubleBlind's money spent as a tourist.

I doubt GM possesses a passport. But then one doesn’t need one to attend white supremacist rallies in Hot Springs.
