But Italy still isn’t being pro-active, intercepting these ships before they reach their maritime border - and until they do, they will be played by Soros and the bleeding-heart NGO’s.
Once any ship enters European territory, the migrants can claim full refugee status and instantly get all sorts of generous EU legal protections - from that point, it’s a real legal pain to get rid of them.
The Italian Navy needs to park 12 miles off Libya, just inside international waters, and keep these smugglers well away from Italy. Don’t even give them a chance to get near Europe.
Yeah, but now Italy has started seizing the migrant ships. This is a brilliant ploy, taking hold of these groups expensive boats. One German peace group has already said it will stop their migrant missions due to Italy threatening to take their boat and the flagship Netherlands saying they will no longer be responsible for those voyages.
