Italy on the brink: 1000 illegals in three days.
New wave of boat migrants overwhelms southern Italian island.
Matteo Salvini is livid and wants new elections, while the Democratic Party claims they are saving them from “drowning”. 🙄😂
– The arrivals of small boats, some carrying as few as eight people, brought to nearly 1,000 the number of migrants who have reached the island from Libya in the last three days.
Former interior minister Matteo Salvini, leader of the anti-immigrant League party, visited Lampedusa and the “hotspot” on Wednesday and accused the government of Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte of being soft on illegal migration.
In response, Enrico Borghi, of the governing Democratic Party, accused Salvini of being a “demagogue” and said the current government was not going to “watch men and women drown”.
* Women? Drownings? We see he has been talking to Bavaria’s Horst Seehofer. Such dramatics but it is not Salvini luring them to cross the sea. The responsibility for any “drownings” lies with the NGOs and those who grant entry or offer relocation in the EU.
