The Libyan president Fayez al-Sarraj has refused to take back any of the invaders who have crossed the Mediterranean Sea to Europe, saying that they are the European Union’s problem.
Speaking in a wide-ranging interview with Die Presse newspaper in Germany, Al-Sarraj was adamant that the invaders—most of whom set off from the Libyan coast, “cannot live with us.”
Asked if Libya was prepared to engage in an agreement similar to the one struck between the EU and Turkey concerning the return of invaders who had no hope of qualifying for “asylum,” Al-Sarraj was adamant:
No, Libya will not accept immigrants who are sent back. The situation of migrants coming from the south to us is completely different than in Turkey. This cannot be easily compared. The EU must find ways in which they send back immigrants to their home countries. They cannot stay with us.
According to the EU and United Nations, tens of thousands of nonwhites—mostly sub-Saharan Africans, but also thousands of North Africans—have crossed the Mediterranean Sea from Libya to Italy this year already.
The mass invasion is openly organized by traffickers and smugglers on the Libyan coast, aided by the almost total non-existence of any government in that country—thanks to the military intervention by France, Britain, and the US against the former Gadhafi government.
It is not just Libya that refuses to take back invaders. According to an earlier report in Die Welt newspaper, no less than 17 nonwhite countries have refused to take back their nationals who have invaded Germany.
Die Welt said that the worst offenders in this regard were in North and West Africa and in the Indian sub-continent.
The rejected “asylum seekers” in Germany alone now amount to “hundreds of thousands” of individuals, Die Welt continued, posing a huge problem to that state. This figure is likely even larger once all the other affected EU member states are included.
In 2015, only 21,000 of the 200,000 “asylum seekers” whose applications were rejected left the country, meaning 179,000 remain in Germany as so-called ‘tolerated’ people.
With in excess of 1.5 million nonwhites having entered Germany during 2015—at the invitation of Angela Merkel—this number is set to increase even further.
German officials have admitted that about 70 percent of the invaders arrive without official documentation—making it very difficult to even make an exact determination of their origin.
States like Pakistan, Algeria, and Tunisia simply refuse to cooperate with German authorities, despite being obliged by international law to comply.
Pakistan is particularly problematic. In 2014 there were only two deportations to that country despite 580 people having their applications rejected.
In 2013, 533 Pakistanis had their asylum applications rejected but only three of them were sent home.
Tunisians—who make up 4 percent of “asylum seekers” in Germany, are responsible for a quarter of all the invader crimes, and almost never have their “asylum applications” granted.
* Latest reports from Turkey indicate that the “EU-Turkey deal” in terms of which that country agreed to take back invaders is also now as good as dead. A Turkish newspaper reported that a senior government official had admitted that there was “no chance” of an agreement being reached on visa-free travel for Turks in the EU, and that an announcement by the Turkish government ending the “deal” was imminent.
