Italy to fine migrant rescue boats without okay to enter ports

Italy’s government has approved stiff fines for migrant rescue boats that defy orders to stay out of Italian waters. Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said Tuesday that a new decree allows fines of up to 50,000 euros ($57,000) when charity boats carrying migrants who were rescued at sea enter Italy’s ports without authorization.

I love how nobody ever mentions that they sail to 12.5 miles off the coast of Libya, the migrants are in rubber rafts bc they're only dropped off at the edge of national waters and were never planning on getting to Italy on their own, and how maritime travel records show how conveniently the NGO boats seem to arrive right after drop off in the perfect place as if they were in communication with traffickers, something they've been accused of by European governments, and that constitutes trafficking in itself.
