Reader comment on item: [West Africa:] New Route to the West

Submitted by Octavio Johanson (Italy), May 30, 2006 at 18:02

It was good to talk about Spain and the Canary Islands. But the situation is far worse in Italy's Lampedusa, Mr. Pipes. Hundreds of people enter the country every day. My prediction: immigration from the Third World will only stop when the economic conditions of the West will resemble those of Less Developed Countries.
