New Delhi, December 18: After a month and a half later of sacking his home secretary Suella Bravermann for anti-immigrant remarks, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is now partnering with Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni for a roadmap to blunt the marching tide of the migrants into Europe. Sunak has said that an unabated flow of migrants would overwhelm parts of Europe.

Meloni is blunter in characterizing the challenge to Europe from the migrants, as she has dubbed the issue to be a case of incompatibility of culture, in her bid to rally support for radical measures to stop the migrants. RadioGenoa quoted Meloni, saying: “I believe that there is a problem of compatibility between Islamic culture and the values ​​and rights of our civilization. The Islamic cultural centers in Italy are financed by Saudi Arabia where Sharia is in force. In Europe there is a very Islamization process distant from the values ​​of our civilization.”

The urgency on the parts of Sunak and Meloni is seen in the backdrop of waves of pro-palestinian protests which swept through the European capitals in the recent weeks in the wake of the Israeli bombing of Gaza in the aftermath of the October 7 attacks by the Hamas. Sunak took part in an event of the political party of Meloni, which is known to have strong views against the Islamic migrants into Italy.   

US News quoted Sunak saying on Saturday that he would push for “global reforms to the asylum system and warned the threat of growing number of refugees could overwhelm parts of Europe. The news portal stated that Sunak condemned the global asylum system while making a case for sending refugees to live in Rwanda. The portal also stated that “Sunak warned that some enemies were deliberately driving people to our shores to try and destabilise our societies.”

Sunak and Meloni agreed to jointly foot the bill to send migrants stranded in Tunisia back to their respective homes. CTV News in a report said that the authorized immigration to the UK set a record in 2022 with nearly 750,000.

The Canadian television channel quoted from a report of the Associated Press saying that “the number of migrants crossing the Mediterranean or the Atlantic on small boats to reach Europe this year has surged. More than 250,000 irregular arrivals were registered in 2023, according to the European Commission.”

CTV News also stated the migrants are yet to scale the number seen in the 2015 refugee crisis, when more than one million people had landed in Europe. The wave of the migrants in 2015 had moved to Europe on the back of raging civil wars in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere. The Canadian television also quoted from an AP report which stated that more than 506,000 migrants crossed the Darien jungle between Colombia and Panama by mid-December.
