I won’t miss those lousy immigrants and all the buzz around it. I’m not against immigration. I’m against those that come here thinking that Europe will fix their lives. I’m against those who come here illegally. I’m tired of the train of thought of the people around me about the immigrant crisis. And I’m fed up with the stupid governments and local population siding with those criminals. That’s right, I said it.
That said, in a few weeks I’m an immigrant myself. And again, I have nothing against legitimate immigration. The huge difference between me and those coming to Europe is that I’m not a criminal. I consider myself a somewhat educated and smart person. I know there are certain rules and requirements. And as a result I have prepared my trip to the Philippines reasonably well.
I’ve saved up some money. Got a plane ticket. I have a visa. And that gives me the right to be in that country. If after a while the Philippines decides they don’t want me anymore, I’ll go someplace else.
At the same time, I’m not expecting a job, I don’t expect a house or any sort of special treatment. I won’t loiter around or use up millions of pesos in tax money either.
They’re desperate to get a better life. So what? The streets are not paved with gold here. What are they expecting to find? Clearly they don’t read the papers… It’s certainly no reason to break just about every law and become a loitering criminal.
If you can pay a vague organisation several thousand dollars to ship you across the border you can also buy a proper plane or ferry ticket and apply for a visa the normal way. You know, like a sane person. Just follow procedure and wait your damn turn. If the country won’t let you in, either make a compelling appeal as to why you are valuable for the country. Or better yet, go back to where you came from and try to make it a better place there.
But no, instead they come here on a overloaded boat, stowed away in freighters or trucks. They break into compounds, trucks and yards, many carry knives as a weapon and cross the border illegally.
You know it’s a sad state if the bus driver has to reassure his passengers to not be scared. This was filmed recently in Calais, France.
And then some…
I mean, what the hell France! Protect these streets!
When they finally ‘succeed’ they get free housing, food, healthcare and preferential treatment. Because they’re poor immigrants needing help? Criminals is what they are. And everything they get for free is all paid for with your tax money. Paid for by your local government, supported by the idiot population of Europe that believe that helping everyone is a duty.
Help yourself first
Why does Europe feel the need to help those people? We as a union have enough problems of our own. We don’t need a million plus people extra to take care of. I’d argue that until Europe sorts itself out there is no room for helping illegal immigrants.
You can’t provide them jobs if there aren’t enough jobs for your own people.
You can’t fix an economy by taking in people who don’t have money.
You can’t provider proper healthcare if you keep taking in people.
You can’t improve education levels by letting in more and more uneducated folks.
It just won’t work.
All you achieve by doing that is increase unemployment numbers, make the economy even less profitable and overload healthcare even further. And well, before the immigrants even start to comprehend our languages, culture and customs who are you kidding about education… Not to mention the millions of euros spent on them. That money is better spent elsewhere.
No, this is not Africa. That’s near Calais, France. Where the Eurotunnel is. And there are tent camps all over Europe. Some inhabit thousands of illegal immigrants.
Earn your keep
The common person already living here; Dutch, Germans, French, Italians, Spanish, English (and whoever else…). They’re all getting screwed over. Most Europeans worked for their welfare benefits, healthcare and retirement funds. Most of us worked for what we have. Some of us saw it disappear are a supposed result of the economic crisis. Then some criminals walk across the border and get it all for free. How unfair and twisted is that.
Countries are going to shit because of this idiocy and apparently nobody in power seems to realise that keeping the illegal immigrants out is, for now, the only sensible solution.
I’m not sticking around for any fixes. I’ve had it. Goodwill, gone. Trust, long gone. I believe that before you can help others you need to have your own affairs in order. Especially if everything these illegals do costs us money. Tons of money. Millions! All that money should be spent for the benefit of Europeans by creating jobs. Stimulate economic growth. Or even to do stuff that allows governments to reduce taxes. Lower VAT, anyone? More bank interest? Yes, please! Better health insurance? Sure.
Governments should help their tax paying people. Those who worked all their life for what they have. Cut them some slack for once. But no, they rather waste their money on helping immigrants who have nothing to contribute.
