⛔What Do You Think Can Be Done to Stop Illegal Immigration From Africa to Europe?
On many occasions, we seen reports in the news about many illegal immigrants dying in the Mediterranean Sea while trying to reach Europe seek for greener pastures. Some have been fortunate enough, and have been able to reach mainland Europe after crossing the Mediterranean Sea. Some have been fortunate enough to cross and reach countries like Italy, Spain, France, Greece, Germany England etc, while the unfortunate many have drowned in the sea and died. While this is happening, the story behind where they come from is another nightmare. These young men and women, mostly come from West Africa from countries like Senegal, Ghana, Nigeria, Togo, to name a few. Before leaving their homes, they do all sorts of things like selling their property, taking loans, in order to raise money for paying people smugglers, who in turn take them across the Sahara desert up countries like Libya, Tunisia, etc. From here, it’s where their journey across the Mediterranean Sea using rude or improvised boats begins. Many have drowned died in the Sea, while the lucky ones have been able to make it to Europe. However, this is a very dangerous venture considering all the risks that are involved and the possibility of death. Despite all these, many young men and women from Africa and even Asia, are still putting their lives in this danger. Do you think there is anything that can be done to stop this dangerous and illegal immigration? What do you suggest?
One of the solution is to provide jobs in Africa. African leaders should take their responsibilities to develop their continent and give access to jobs to graduated people. They must create a good business and job environment that will recruit youth. Stability is also a factor that need to be improved in Africa.
I agree lots of things needs immediate attention
