Police break up huge migrant trafficking ring that smuggled illegals from Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq and Pakistan to Italy and then into northern Europe.

The arrested suspects included Iraqi Kurds, Afghans and even Italians themselves. Most of the foreigners were holding residency permits issued on grounds of “international protection”, the police said.
What a farce these residency permits are.

Yes, smugglers must be punished severely but the main problem that keeps them in business…and multiplying: Each illegal migrant paid 6,000 euros ($7,200) to be smuggled from Asia, via Turkey and Greece, into Italy, the police said.

Italy and others must realize that the illegal migrants must be punished as well by deporting them out of Europe. There will always be smugglers as long as there are illegals willing to pay this amount of money…knowing they will stay in Europe.

The EU likes useless slogans like dismantling the smuggling networks, but this is impossible so long as the illegals are allowed to stay.
