  2. It’s terrible that they go to Europe. There are no extra jobs, money, houses, or opportunities for illegals in Europe. Europeans are struggling. Just like America, we have nothing for illegals. Americans are struggling and in need of help and jobs.

  3. Mr Minister shut up ur stinky mouth out there,we know home is home, but u and ur politicians can not be sharing the wealth of the nation, 🖕🖕🖕

  4. We must go to Europe and bring back our goods the whites tooked from Africa. It’s truth the backway is very hard I passed through it and thank God im now in Italy waiting for my documents. For those who went back home or those who had been deported in their homeland u think is something cool hence u can’t cross to Italy rather than staying in that hell which is Libya..

  9. I’m a Gambian and i personally know people who left their good paying job in the Gambia to go suffer in Libya. Is a mentality issue not an economic issue. I’m studying in the United States and i only have 1 year left but when i tell people that am going to back home after my studies they think that am stupid for even thinking of going home permanently. Is a sickness.
