Italy’s EU Ambassador Says No To More Migrants

Due to the recent onslaught in migrants in Italy, Italian government officials stated Wednesday that the Italian government might start preventing NGO ships from bringing migrants to Italy.

“Italy has reached saturation point,” an Italian official requesting anonymity told Reuters.

The EU Observer reported that more than 12,000 people arrived to Italy in the past five days, causing difficulties with accommodating the large portion of refugees.

EU’s Commissioner for Migration Dimitris Avramopoulos wrote on Twitter that the other EU states “must deliver” help to Italy based on the large amount of migrants coming through the country. U.N. figures noted that approximately 82,000 migrants have arrived to Italy in the past year.

 

The EU seeks to redistribute migrants throughout the member states, however, Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic have refused to accept asylum seekers.
