Salvini tells Germany to handle migrant boat heading for Italy

Italian leader Matteo Salvini on Thursday told Berlin to take responsibility for 64 migrants rescued in the Mediterranean by a German charity boat and heading toward the Italian coast. The migrants include 12 women, an 11-month-old girl and a 6-year-old boy. Salvini has led a crackdown on illegal immigration by closing Italian ports to humanitarian vessels since last year.

So a charity finds immigrants off the coast of Libya and after no response from Libyan coast guard automatically think the next best place is across the sea in bad weather to Italy, not Egypt or Tunisia? The charity isn’t thinking clearly, or logically.

"New arrivals to Italy have plummeted since Salvini took office in June, with just 532 migrants coming so far this year, according to official data, down 92 percent on the same period in 2018 and down 98 percent on 2017." Seems to be working , so how is he the bad Guy? The whole migrant crisis only happens with the compliance of the host countries politicians . This is proof.

So according to the charity only 12 out of 64 are women and children, which means over 80% are military age males. Sound like helpless refugees to you?

Where are the leftist? Shouldn't they be calling this guy a facist like they do Trump? Guess looking at the EUs mass immigration and all of its failures is a little too close to what they want for the US.

Thats great. If Merkel has a dream then let her handle the goods. Her people will eventually revolt as well and Globalism will finally die completely

It's time to start prosecuting these NGO people smugglers who are wilfully engaged in international crimes and have every single death in the Mediterranean on their hands.

Merkel can't handle the "immigrants" she has in Germany. while I respect the sentiment you are going to have to handle it on your own.
