This is a topic that VERY few people have a brain big enough to discuss.
I am one who cannot comment on the rights or wrongs,BUT I would point out that if ANY MIGRANT enters a country and is later found NOT TO HAVE COMPLIED with the entry laws of that country such a migrant becomes AN ILLIGAL IMMIGRANT Therefore that person has no cause to complain if they are flown back by aeroplane.

DEAR READER would like to submit a post and give us all an insight into their feelings on this topic that would be great !
President Adama Barrow told the visiting Interior Minister of Spain that any progressive discussion on migration between Spain and the European Union, must take into account domestic socio-economic challenges facing The Gambia and other African countries.
President Barrow made the remarks during a courtesy call by the Spanish minister to the State House yesterday. He is in the country to discuss and strengthen bilateral relations with The Gambia’s Minister for the Interior, Ebrima Mballow, who accompanied them to State House.

The president said cooperation with European partners must include development strategies focused on building capacities to empower youths as well as strengthen the national economy for jobs creation in order to reduce the exodus of youths and the risks cross-border criminal activities.
While stating that The Gambia has a longstanding relation with the people and government of Spain, the president said his government is committed to advancing the ties from strength to strength.

Following the closed-door discussion with the president, Minister Fernando Grandea Marlaska Gomez spoke to the press reaffirming the position of the president on the migration debate: “We agreed that security should not be our only area of consideration… other social and economic areas are equally important to security. If we want to get a peaceful relations between Europe and Africa, we have to get into development.”
He added that Spain and The Gambia are going to work to improve the human resource base of Gambians, particularly security outfits in the areas of civil protection. He argued that fighting irregular migration networks and transnational criminal organisations such as narcotic networks are a common concern for both countries.

The minister maintained that everyone has the right to live anywhere they want. “People should also be given the opportunity to live where they want. Therefore, Spain and The Gambia have to work together to be in equal partnership,” Minister Gomez concluded.

"Simple is good" & I strongly dislike politics. You cannot defend the indefensible.
