Immigrant Boot Camp

Timothy Birdnow

Here is a great idea from Italy. The city of Bergano is making making asylum seekers participate in a boot camp to enculturate them before letting them mix into the general public.

From the Al-Jazeera article:

The "students" are asylum seekers and participating in a boot-camp style one-year programme whose explicit purpose is to integrate migrants.

The school whose name translates as Academy of Integration Thank you Bergamo, hosts 35 men aged 18 to 40, all of them, except one Pakistani, from African countries - Nigeria, Ghana, Senegal and Ivory Coast.

Participants attend Italian-language classes, get internships at factories in the area and have to follow a strict routine.

They also have to do community service work for free.

If something is worth having it's worth working for,and if coming to Italy is worthwhile then young immigrants should be willing to put in a year of their lives for a much better life than they would have if they stayed in their home countries.

The article continues: The academy's students can only use their smartphones for a few hours a day. For the best part of the day, their rooms are empty, with perfectly made beds. No language other than Italian is allowed. And they look more like cadets than students.

They must always wear a uniform and have three kinds of outfits.

When they are inside, it is a blue tracksuit with the words "Grazie Bergamo" in large print on the back; the second uniform is orange, similar to waste collectors, and also bears the words "Grazie Bergamo" in large print; the third, worn in free time, is a blue shirt and grey sweater with a small school logo, which also allows them to take the city's public transportation free of charge.

"This is not a school for everyone," Giorgio Gori, mayor of Bergamo, told Al Jazeera.

It's no place for slackers, he says, because participants "must respect a series of rules of cohabitation" and professional training is mandatory, "with the aim of getting them to a job".

To get into the programme, participants must pass three interviews assessing their knowledge of Italian, the level of schooling and their ability to respect the rules.

End excerpt.

By the way, how do impoverished, desperate refugees get smart phones? I don't have one myself.

A big part of the problem both in Europe and in America is too little is done to make the aliens actually appreciate the great gift they are being given. Also, there is no pressure on them to acculturate. This sort of "training" solves both problems, at least in part. If nothing else, it is an attempt to do something about the problem. Now we let people come and go as they please, and here in America there are large areas where English is not spoken. That has to change if we are to maintain an actual country.

So let's applaud the Italians, and consider a new import.
