The problem with this is that wherever they flee to is not guaranteed that they will be welcomed or continue with life as usual.
The above situation is particularly evident in Lampedusa, an Italian island very popular with refugees who flock in from Tunisia, Libya, and Syria pushed out of their countries by raging wars and unrest. The small island which measures roughly a square mile in size has a holding capacity of six thousand people but with the daily influx of refugees, it currently hosts about ten thousand refugees. The situation has contributed to straining of the island's resources, the living conditions are below the acceptable levels, the refugees are conflicting with the authorities, and worst of all, the refugees are turning against each other as they struggle to survive. This calls for an immediate resolution to end the crisis before it gets out of hand. Of all the suggestions offered, none seems as effective as finding a means of cutting down on the numbers of refugees as this will reduce the conflicts with authorities, and calm the looming civil crisis and violence in Lampedusa.
Lampedusa is an eight square mile Italian Island is known to the world not because of its small size, but because of its dense refuge immigrant’s numbers and the many disasters that recur in the region. Owing to its placement, halfway into Africa and Europe, in addition to the welcoming Italian immigration laws, it acts as an escape route for people fleeing from inhumane conditions at home. Currently, it hosts refugees from mainly Syria, Eritrea, Egypt, and Liberia. This description is contradicting about what many of them except in Europe, where they rush to go and find aid, away from civil wars and violence, but it seems that this is not the case.
A new problem has developed recently, according to Davies (n.p.). The seafront, which also doubles up as the only available space for the ever-landing refugees, is now overcrowded, having a capacity of only 300, a number that can be achieved in 3 days as more immigrants arrive in their hundreds daily.
