If you've ever been to Thailand, you'll know that as a foreigner, you have to pay ten times the price the locals pay for everything including entrance fees to national parks. That derives from their misguided belief that every foreigner is stinking rich and can afford to pay a higher price. No change in Phi Phi national park fees

That in turn leads migrants to believe that the streets of Europe are paved with gold and all they need to do is to pay the traffickers around $1,000 to get there and they too will become rich beyond their wildest dreams.

3700 asylum seekers plucked from the sea in one day! Italy migrants rescue: 3,700 saved from smugglers at sea - Channel 4 News

According to the accompanying news report, Italy expects around 200,000 for the whole of 2015. But if today's rescue operation is anything to go by, it'll mean more than 1,376,000 will be arriving on Italy's shores instead.

Something has to be done to curb this kind of influx because it's ludicrous to expect any country to be able to deal with those kind of numbers in the short term. After all, they have to be housed somewhere while their request for asylum is being processed. Somehow or other I doubt if Italy has the kind of secure accommodation available to house refugees arriving in their millions even if a large proportion of them will declared to be economic migrants and sent back home again.

Also, I wonder how 500 of them managed to make it to Paris where they've camped out under bridges hoping to get to Britain: More than 500 British-bound migrants set up camps in the heart of Paris | Daily Mail Online
