    The “Human Dimension Implementation Meeting 2018,” held in Warsaw, asked speakers to select one of three topics: “Freedom of the Media,” “Rights of Migrants,” or “Combating Racism, Xenophobia, Intolerance and Discrimination”.

    Hopkins said during her presentation that NGO “rescue” operations are in fact a “ferry service” for migrants. She said governments aiding such operations are complicit in lucrative human trafficking schemes.

    “By accepting the human cargo of these boats, governments like Britain, Spain, Germany, France, Portugal are, by extension, part of the problem,” she noted. “Stop being part of the problem, and be part of the solution.”

    She said the example of Italy’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini to stop cooperation with such NGOs, close the country’s ports to NGO ships and impounding the vessels, should be followed.

    “To be clear: NGO rescue boats do not involve a ‘frantic search for people’ – the boats have scheduled departure times and agreed collection points in a drop-off zone off the coast of Libya. In effect, they are a ferry service across the Mediterranean and part of the business model of the trafficker,” Hopkins explained.

    Hopkins also lambasted the event as a waste of tax money in a tweet: “A peak behind the scenes at the turgid bureaucracy funded by your taxpayer dollars. Teams from 57 countries sat here for two weeks in a 5-star hotel repeating the mantra of the globalists.”
