More Illegal Immigrant Deaths
2003-10-20
An Italian coastal patrol has found a small boat with 11 dead would-be immigrants near the southern island of Lampedusa. Also on board were 24 survivors of a trip that an Italian refugee official suspected began near the Tunisian-Libyan border. The dead had apparently succumbed to exhaustion and starvation, and the survivors were emaciated. It is the second tragedy involving illegal immigrants off Lampedusa in the past three days. On Friday, seven Africans died before their boat could reach Lampedusa. A further 25 survived.
The problem is universal. People don’t like to live where it sucks.
So they go live someplace else, and try to make it suck like home. Go figure.

#3  At least the survivors won't be able to sue the Italian government for not making easier for them to migrate illegally to Italy.
