Mass deportations planned as Italy named 'frontline' of Europe's refugee crisis

Recommended Posts

Italy is to take a tougher stance on illegal migration in 2017, following a 12-month period that saw a record number of migrants enter the country, estimated at 500,000.

The move by Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni is his first major policy change and marks a different mindset to his predecessor Matteo Renzi, who adopted a more laid-back approach.

Between the refugees and the earthquakes, how is Italy even functioning anymore... oh and volcanos.

Italy is the one who rescues all the "refugees" in their sinking rafts.

More than 10,000 refugees rescued in two days in Mediterranean
October 5,2016

More than 10,000 refugees bound for Italy have been rescued in the Mediterranean in the last 48 hours in a series of more than 70 operations led by the Italian coastguard and navy.

Italy’s neighbours to the north – Austria, France and Switzerland – have essentially closed off their borders to new migrants, creating political tensions and forcing Italy to process and possibly relocate asylum seekers on its own.
