Migrants are getting ’desperate’ aboard rescue ship

Migrants are getting ’desperate’ aboard rescue ship

Officials from the Spanish humanitarian rescue ship Open Arms said another man had to be rescued after jumping into the sea as the stand-off with Italy continues. Open Arms described the situation on board Tuesday as ’desperate’. Italy has refused port access to the ship, docked just off the island of Lampedusa, even though six other European countries have agreed to take the passengers.

"Humanitarian Rescue Ship" you mean "Illegal Human Trafficker Ship"?

Take them back to Africa and kick them off and stop with the emotional blackmail. Italy doesn’t want them.

Not a humanitarian ship, A human trafficking ship. These are organized crime syndicates masquerading as NGO's. This is a business. An illegal business trafficking in people. People that they sell. Shut it down and arrest the organizers starting with Angela Merkel.

“Even though 6 other countries have agreed to take the passengers” must not be that desperate eh?

Won't try to dock at another country out of the many that would take them, mixed up with human trafficking, and we are supposed to believe that they are the victims here? People in general aren't stupid enough to buy this.

This is a full on invasion on a daily basis and our countries are welcoming these people in. Italy is doing the right thing. their next move should be to follow the UK in saying bye bye to the EU

The people of Europe do not want any more economic migrants from the third world in their countries even if the governments do. How clearly do we have to state this? Well done Italy!

Then turn the boat around and take them back were they came from! playing chicken with Italy is very unwise, when they have nothing to lose.

Now here's a good opportunity for the US and China to show some consideration for people in distress. If only they can brush aside their idiotic squabblings.
