If a society is to have a successful future, its young population certainly play a key role. Nigerian Cardinal Francis Arinze seems to know this.

In calling out African governments, "left-wing religious leaders" and others "pushing mass migration," the 86-year-old Arinze has said, "Europeans must stop encouraging the departure of young Africans. Africa needs them."

Emphasizing the harm in African countries caused by the mass exodus of its young people, the Cardinal has stated, "The best way that countries in Europe and America can help Africa is not by encouraging young people to come to Europe . . . but [to help] countries where they come from. It’s better if someone stays in their own country and works there.”

Israel seems to have adopted this general idea -- paying African migrants to leave Israel; to go back to their own countries.

Catholic Cardinal Robert Sarah puts things in somewhat less practical, more moral terms with respect to the "result[s] of mass migration." Moreover, he adds that “The European Union no longer protects the peoples within it. It protects the banks."

So the clear conclusion is that the supporters of mass migration don't seem to really care about the well-being and future of African countries.
