“Stop your policy of open borders in Europe, we need our youth here” urge African leaders

Many African heads of state are surprised by Europe’s open border policy and urge the continent to change it, Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said to German tabloid Bild.

“According to Ethiopian President Sahle-Work Zewde it’s better if the African youth remained in their countries and don’t even want to come to Europe.

“‘It is clear that we must not lose our youth because they flee to Europe. We need to tackle the causes rather than worry about the symptoms.

“‘The escape is dangerous. Criminal human smugglers make money with it. We must keep the people who will lead Ethiopia – and Africa – into a better future,’ Sahle-Work Zewde said.

So, why this push to import more migrants from developing nations, including African ones, on the part of some Europeans? As I have commented before, an unholy alliance between open-border (a euphemism for anti-European, anti-Western) ideologues, and corporate interests looking for a cheap labor pool.

But maybe the worm is finally beginning to turn, as both ordinary European and source nations begin to push back. We can hope and pray!

  1. When Western countries allow third-worlders in because they have the education and skills to be self-supporting, then they are guilty of Intellectual Strip Mining. They are taking the very people that are needed in their native land to make it a better place so they aren’t tempted to leave. We just make the problem worse and accelerate the decline of those third world countries. This, of course, is no problem for the Leftist – the only thing that matters is their twisted virtue signaling.

    1. I am, of course, resolutely opposed to illegal immigration. But I also think we need to start looking seriously at how we conduct legal immigrant, as well. Partly due to the issue of intellectual strip-mining, a.k.a. the immigration “brain drain”: if most or all of a developing country’s best and brightest end up emigrating to another country, it is never going to be more than a failed state.

      But I also think we need to get right away from our current fascination – and I would argue, idolization – of “diversity,” and of immigration-for-its-own-sake, and start thinking about who will fit in best with American culture and society. And I’m not talking about the global-Left cloud-cuckoo-land idea of American society, either; I mean traditional American society: the kind that brought about “the American century,” and led us to global leadership, before we chucked it out the window.

      If we don’t, we’re going to end up with a mixed-up, jumbled-up mess, and we’ll be the “developing” (or devolving) nation. We’re a long way down that road, already, unfortunately!
