    Italy’s Interior Minister Luciana Lamorgese consulted with Prime Minister Mario Draghi on how to deal with measures to deal with the recent influx in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Transport.

    Meanwhile, demands from the Lega and Fratelli d’Italia (FdI) parties have outraged Lampedusa’s pro-migration mayor, Toto Martello. Lega boss Matteo Salvini had called for a meeting with Draghi stating that the smugglers, like the non-governmental organizations in the Mediterranean, must be stopped.

    FdI chairwoman Giorgia Meloni had reiterated her call for a sea blockade. “The idea of ​​setting up a sea blockade is so obvious nonsense that it doesn’t even deserve a comment,” Martello said ins response.

    Meanwhile, the Sicilian judicial authorities seized the ship operated by the Berlin organization Sea-Watch, because too many life jackets were found on board. The sewage system on board is not designed for such a large number of people. The Sea-Watch 4 recently took hundreds of migrant boats on board. The crew had previously also been criticized for hoisting an Antifa flag.

    The number of migrants coming to Italy across the Mediterranean rose sharply in the first four months of 2021 compared to previous years. As of May 10, the Ministry of the Interior in Rome registered almost 13 000 arrivals. In the previous year there were around 4 200 in this period, and two years ago it was around 1000.

      The problem at hand is caused by EU mass migration and open borders policy, which has been subscribed to in full by Italy’s current and previous leftist governments. Now that Italy faces a flood of illegals from Libya, aided by globalist-funded NGOs, both the Italian government and its masters in Brussels are calling for help. Neither wishes the issue to become any more serious than it is now, as to allow that to happen would clearly show the insanity of EU immigration policy and its devastating impact on Italy. So the fig leaf they seek is to distribute the illegals all over the continent, in the belief that it will mitigate, and help hide, the consequences of the problem. In reality, all it would do is encourage more and more illegals to enter Europe. The reality, however, is increasingly evident: Europe is not, and should not be, the solution to the problems of Africa and Asia.
