The joys of solidarity and a united government: Number of illegals arriving in Italy doubles in 12 months.
Draghi is delivering more to Italy than just EU aid.
Lega apparently now tolerates this by continuing to support this government. Meloni kept her principles and knew better.
– Between Aug. 1, 2020, and July 31, 2021, a total of 49,280 illegals landed on the Italian coasts. This corresponds to an increase of 128% year-on-year (21,616 people), according to ministry figures.
The vast majority of the newcomers – 40,727 – were people who reached Italy independently in what the authorities call “autonomous landings.” According to the statistics, the majority of the migrants had set sail in Libya (22,343) or Tunisia (17,677).
According to the information provided by migrants upon arrival, Tunisians were the most represented (14,153 in total), followed by Bangladeshis (6,027) and citizens of the Ivory Coast (3,312).
* The new Draghi government was not responsible for the entire twelve month period, but it has done nothing to curtail the flows. It’s interior minister is the same pro-migration extremist from the previous leftist government.
One can certainly surmise from the numbers that Draghi’s interior minister has the influence within this government regarding migration. Salvini is upset…yet Lega continues to support and is a part of this government.
Hopefully, Salvini does not become the Horst Seehofer (CSU-EPP) of Italy.
