Italy’s Interior Minister begins deporting migrants: “Deporting them isn’t racist, it’s merely common sense”

Italy’s Interior Minister begins deporting migrants: “Deporting them isn’t racist, it’s merely common sense”, by Ben Perchiron.

Italy’s Interior Minister, Matteo Salvini, who vowed to deport hundreds of thousands of illegal African migrants from Italy back to their respective countries, seems to have started in earnest now.

Yesterday 165 Nigerians were repatriated back to their country, more than half the number deported during the first six months of 2017, so one can expect the number of deportations this year to dwarf those of last year.

After reaching several agreements with their country of origin, Italian authorities loaded the immigrants onto a boat to Libya, where they’d then be put on a plane to Nigeria. Later, Mr Matteo Salvini commented: “there’ll be 165 fewer potential rapists of our women, and this is only the beginning.”

Robert Spencer:

Salvini is right, but he will be excoriated as a “racist” anyway. The political and media elites expect, and indeed demand, that the countries of the West commit national suicide. Anything short of that is “racist” and “neo-Nazi.”
