George Clooney’s wealthy neighbors are furious that hundreds of migrants have set up a makeshift camp near their homes in Lake Como, Italy.
The migrants are living in tents near the actor’s multi-million dollar mansion as they wait to get into northern Europe after Switzerland closed its southern border with Italy.
They are reportedly surrounded by “discarded clothes, shoes, food containers and even rats.”

“I don’t want them here,” Maria Grazia, a restaurant owner in the area, told the Daily Mail Thursday. “Italy has enough problems without trying to solve the problems of the world. We should not have to deal with these people on our own.”
“Europe does nothing to help us. Now they make us — me, my family and other Italian families — pay for them.”
“A small number of immigrants is not a problem but now they are so many,” a housewife added.
“You see them arriving at that the San Giovanni station. They are not poor hungry refugees but they are big and strong. People here in Como don’t like them. There are simply too many of them.”
“It is good for Switzerland that they have closed the border to migrants but it is bad for Italy,” a chauffer then said. “We simply don’t have the resources to deal with all these new people.”
“Italy has lots of problems of our own without having to try to deal with other people’s problems. It is a complex situation.” (RELATED: What George Clooney Just Said About A Donald Trump Presidency Will Have Voters Fuming)
