On February 21, 2023, Tunisia’s President Kais Saied described an increasing influx of illegal immigrants from sub-Saharan African countries as a scheme to alter the demographics of the country.
Saied reportedly said those things during a session with the National Security Council, according to a Reuters story. Saied demanded that the influx of undocumented immigrants be stopped instantly.
“The unstated objective of the successive waves of illegal immigration,” he said, “is to make Tunisia seem like a completely African republic unconnected to the Arab and Islamic countries.”
Rights organizations in Tunisia called Saied’s remarks about migration from the Sub-Saharan region “racist.”
“It is a racist strategy, similar to campaigns throughout Europe,” according to Ramadan Ben Amor, spokesman for the Tunisian Forum for Economic and Social Rights, “the presidential campaign seeks to create a fictitious opponent for Tunisians to divert them from their underlying concerns.”
In general, Tunisia is a significant transit country for people seeking to get to Europe across the Mediterranean, including an increasing number of Tunisians and residents of other African nations.
A number of social media campaigns have been started in Tunisia urging the government to stop African migrants from passing through the country on their way to Europe or from settling there.
The Tunisian government started repressing migrants in February.
The Tunisian leader alleged that over the previous ten years, certain organizations—which he did not specifically name—had been resettling African migrants in Tunisia in exchange for cash.
Indeed, the effects of mass migration extend beyond the countries of white Europe. Other nations, like Tunisia, are also being affected. Mass immigration is a component of a larger globalist scheme to destroy traditional nations and virtually abolish their borders. The intention is to establish supranational political entities that lack national identities and are thus simpler to manage.
