On the southern borders of both Europe and the United States, millions of economic migrants are desperately trying to enter the West illegally.
It is impossible not to feel compassion for these people, even though the West is unable and unwilling to house, clothe, and feed such a huge swarm.
What is needed are solutions… and Egyptian billionaire Naguib Sawiris claims to have found one.
The telecoms magnate has offered to purchase an island from either Greece or Italy and create a new country where economic migrants can prosper… far from the tyrannies they are fleeing.
Is this the solution the world needs? After all, the vast majority of these migrants are simply trying to build a better life for themselves and their loved ones… but western communities are fearful of being overwhelmed.
So should we purchase land and turn it over to the migrants? Or what else shall we do? Let us know in the comments section below.
