He may have a long wait. Nearby a group of young Gambians have had enough of living in limbo in the camp, which holds 3,200 migrants, a sixth of those in Italian centres. "I have been here 10 months and 26 days. We have no school, no papers, nothing," one of them said. "And we get macaroni every day. It's like a prison."

For migrant shipwreck survivors, a new nightmare begins

Uh; since you people ARE illegal aliens, where do you expect to stay, a country club? Sheesh!

Maybe the best way of tackling the problem is to offer them a sum of money, say 5,000 plus the cost of travel provided they agree to return to their own countries. Many from countries like Eritrea where the poorest earn less than a 1 a day would probably jump at the chance.

It'll be a lot cheaper in the long run than keeping them confined in overcrowded secure accommodation while their cases are processed. Bill for asylum seekers bed and board hits 726,000 a day - Telegraph

The problem is that they would probably just come right back unless we start arming the border and building an actual wall in the most porous places to deter them. We need a better tracking system also. Our government can't even seem to track visa overstayers. Implementing e-verify would discourage them from coming back for jobs. They also need to be denied benefits and birthright citizenship for their kids which would both be incentives for them to come back.

Well, they're already fingerprinted when they first arrive. If they break the agreement not to return in exchange for the cash incentive, they won't get much sympathy a second time around.

It's a pity Britain doesn't understand the value of ID cards because they identify who is in the country legally and who isn't.

I'm surprised that Obama doesn't want to send a Navy ship to pick them up and bring them here. I am serious.

LOL..the world now has "entitled refugees".

Remember when the mass if illegal kids came here last summer ?
They complained of cold eggs and soggy burritos and government officials went pandering to the press about the deplorable conditions.

Good idea. It would at least relieve the pressure on Italy and Greece since that's where most of them seem to be headed.
