Migrant Smugglers Making $518,000 Or So Per Boatload to Europe

33

Apparently, smuggling migrants into Europe is big business and brings big money — up to $518,000 per boatload, according to recent estimates from intelligence agencies.

Meanwhile, the European Union continues to insist it’s doing all it can to stop the flood of illegals.

Buying an ocean crossing to Italy and other European points costs plenty of money — but is a big profit venture for the smugglers.

Yet they’re still coming — by the boatload.

And it’s not as if the crafts they’re crossing waters in are exactly high speed, high tech. No.

Some of them are little more than makeshift floats, ramshackle old boats, rubber rafts, vessels that seem constructed by human hands in rapid time.

The Express has the story (thanks to Jihad Watch):

“Under the Malta Declaration signed early in 2017, the [European Union] bloc agreed to pay the Libyan coastguard to stop boats launching from the beaches.

“However, £78million [$99.5 million] later and after weeks of training, desperate men, women and children hoping to seek asylum in Europe are still making they way towards Italy.

“Most tell harrowing tales of life in Libya, from being sold on an active slave market to being raped and beaten.

“Following dramatic rescues this week by Spanish non-governmental organisation GO Proactiva Open Arms, many refugees revealed they have sold everything they own to fund their trip.

“In just one day a flimsy rubber boat, which held 128 people, was rescued by the charity, followed by a wooden ship which held 261.

“In the rubber boat, migrants paid up to £850 each, while in the wooden vessel the price of a space was up to £1,700 [$2,167].”
