Spain is facing a major problem as sub-saharan refugees pour across their border with Africa. President Donald Trump has a simple solution to this problem, and it’s exactly what you would expect: Build a wall!
“The Sahara border can’t be bigger than our border with Mexico,” Trump said to the Spanish government, laughing off their objections.
Spanish Foreign Affairs Minister Josep Borrell told the media about Trump’s suggestion. Trump is believed to have made the statement to Borrell as he traveled to the White House alongside King Felipe and Queen Letizia back in June.
“We can confirm that’s what the minister said, but we won’t be making any further comment on the minister’s remarks,” a spokesman for the Spanish foreign ministry said.
The socialist government of Spain has, thus far, done the exact opposite of what Trump has recommended. They have minimized the migrant crisis and pushed for Spain to accept more of them.
“We’re talking about 20,000 migrants so far this year for a country of more than 40 million inhabitants,” Borrell said in July. “That’s not mass migration.”
Although Borrell does admit there are problems related to the refugees, he believes that his regime can restructure the country in order to make Spain more hospitable to these third-world invaders.
“We’ve sorted the economic problem, but not the migration problem because it’s an emotional problem and not one you fix with money,” Borrell said. “European societies aren’t structured to absorb more than a certain percentage of migrants, especially if they are Muslims.”
The socialist prime minister of Spain, Pedro Sánchez, was praised by the leftist media for proclaiming that his nation would accept 630 refugees who were marooned aboard the ship Aquarius earlier in the summer. The people of Spain were less enthused about the news after third-world migrants escaped a refugee camp amidst riots and violence:
The Spanish government will not be in power much longer as long as they refuse to take measures to restrict immigration from the third-world. They would be wise to take Trump’s advice, or inevitably be replaced with a right-wing populist regime that will actually do what is necessary to protect the Spanish people from foreign threats.
