African immigrants are trying to travel to Europe for a better life, but many don't make it. These desperate immigrants go through so much. For one thing, traveling is so hard. First the immigrants must save up a years salary worth just to ride on the boat. This boat cost 200 dollars. This seems a good price for us, but this is there salary for a year. Ours is 42,000 dollars! Big difference. Also it is not a good deal even for us, the boats are squished, tiny and filled with about 80 people standing on fuels for the 40 horse powered motor. These immigrants must do this for 8-10 days. You think this is bad; well almost all the ships do not even make it to Europe. The ships either sink out in the ocean because of a storm, make it to Europe to have the EU turn them back or have a happy life in the new country. The third option rarely ever happens. These immigrants still come knowing about all these dangers. Why do you think they still come?
Do you think the EU should keep turning the immigrants around; after all they have come through? I think that the EU should have a spot in Europe for the immigrants to stay. If people hear about this in Africa then more will come. When the space is full, it’s full. No more room should be provided. I think this is fair because, if Europe just lets immigrants in and they can go were ever they want the EU will have to pay for their food. Also there would be fewer jobs open for the people of Europe. Even worse the Africans have no money so they can’t buy food. If you put the immigrants in one spot with every thing they need you can solve most of those problems and have them grow their own food.
Questions to consider:
Do you think it is right to send the immigrants back after all they came through?
What is your idea of helping the EU?
