More and more European countries are wising up and putting a stop to mass migration. Italy is a case in point where mass migration of Africans into Italy has gone from 180,000 a year to just 3,000, and this is a direct result of the government taking action to prevent it.
So one can easily make the argument that Trump’s attempt to limit mass migration from Mexico and Central America is far from unusual. In fact, it is the clear trend internationally. Countries just don’t want to be swamped by masses of poor immigrants. It’s that simple.
