Issa Joseph Muscat qed tara b'ghajnejk ghaliex kont tghid lil Gonzi huwa mpotenti quddiem l-Unjoni Ewropeja, ghaliex anke lilek qed jortulek
idejk.
Jien illum inhossi cert li jekk mhux ser issir xi haga drastika ta malajr, bin negozzjati li qed isiru Malta tilhaq issir is-Somalja.

L-Unjoni Ewropeja ghandha id-dmir li ttina l-fondi biex jghamlu tajjeb ghal flus mit-taxxi taghna jekk dawn iriduna
nzommhom fostna. Hekk alumenu ghandha tkun is-solidarjeta.

Innutajtu x'qal wieħed minnhom? Qal telaq min pajjizu biex ifittex ħajja aħjar wara li xahar ilu mietitlu il-mara. Qal li ħalli 7 titfal warajħ. Mela dan qed juri biċ-ċar li il-maġġoranza tagħhom mhux veru li jkollhom hajjithom fil-periklu, għax min hu dak il-missier li jitlaq mil-pajjiz u jħalli lill-uliedu warajħ meta jaf li dawn se jkunu fil-periklu li jiġu maqtula. Min hu daqshekk ipokrita li ma jindunax b'dawn is-sangisugi li qed jiġu hawn biex jgħixu ħajja min fuq dhar il-poplu Malti?

Push back is the only solution for us. The shame will be on Europe's head not us for leaving us to our fate.

We either take the bull by the horns and take immediate action or suffocate with immigration.
By the way timesofmalta.com does not think the latest arrivals are newsworthy. There is not a mention of this fact. Shame on them.

Dear PM,
For a start Lets have a Referendum asking the People if they think we should sign out of the Dublin II Regulation.
Also, this could be coupled to the ECHR convention of which we are signatories.
Please Let The People decide their future!

George Farrugia.

It is not fair that Europe does not help Malta enough.We cannot take any more illegal immigrants.It is nice to help.But enough is enough.I know that that the present Govt.is doing it's best.We shoud follow the example of Australia.These cost Malta a lot of money everyday.If we want to work in a foreign Country we need good qualifications and a valid passport.No Comment.

Fejnhom dawk il-qabda pulċinelli li kull darba li xi ħadd jiftaħ ħalqu biex jiddefendi pajjizna jiġi ittimbrat li hu razzist. meta ha tirrejalizzaw li Malta ma tistax tibqa tilkqa dan l-ammont kollu ta' immigrant illegali? Meta fl'aħħar il-poplu jixba u jieħu pass hu stess biex iwaqqaf dan il-influss darba għall dejjem. Meta l-awtoritajiet se jieħdu passi bis-serjeta' u ma jħallux lill-Unjoni Ewropeja titnejjek bina aktar? Meta fl=aħħar il-poplu jisplodi? Imbgħad ikun kollu għallxejn li wieħed jgħid, Hi ara x'ġara f'Malta. Ikun tard wisq biex treġġa l-arloġġ lura.
