The NGOs of the sea have landed in Italy, since January, over 10 thousand migrants. 22% of the total departed from Libya, thanks to the traffickers, came to us. This year, with the Minister of the Interior Luciana Lamorgese, we are back to record numbers. Until yesterday, the Interior Ministry recorded 79,647 arrivals by sea. And the estimates, if we do not put a stop to it, foresee 91,500 landings at the end of the year. “If it goes on like this, like Tuesday, with 1,150 arrivals in a single day, we will also exceed this figure” explains a source of the Giornale on the front line. The fear is to return to 100,000 landings, as in the worst years of illegal immigration by sea. The NGOs immediately declared war on the Meloni government, ready to do battle with a fleet of about twenty ships, small and large, as well as three reconnaissance planes that also take off from Lampedusa. Since the beginning of the year, they have brought 10,031 migrants to Italy (9,945 left from Libya and 86 from Tunisia). At the moment there are 384 other migrants aboard Ocean Viking, the French of Sos Mediterrranee and Humanity 1 of the German reception Taliban.
The Minister of the Interior, Matteo Piantedosi, does not want to give in to NGOs that challenge the States. Head of Cabinet at the time of Matteo Salvini at the Viminale, he was the one who technically managed the policy of closed ports and the fight against illegal immigration, which had evident effects. In 2019, there were just 11,471 arrivals. The following year they tripled (34,154 landings) and exploded in 2021 (67,040) with Luciana Lamorgese at the Viminale.
On Tuesday, two large and ancient fishing boats with over a thousand people on board arrived from Cyrenaica. At least one departed from the Tobruk area, near the border with Egypt. It is no coincidence that the first nationality of the landings are the Egyptians (16,371), who overtook the Tunisians (16,292) and the migrants from Bangladesh (11,510). All people who do not flee from war zones. The latest arrivals to Italy from Bangladesh say they paid 7 thousand dollars. The Egyptians 4 thousand and the Syrians 6500 for the entire journey.
At sea there are three NGO ships and the others are waiting for the “change” moored in Sicilian and Apulian ports or in Spain. Sea Watch 3 is the only one in custody. The intentions, including political ones, are clear: on the day of the appointment to form the government for the FdI leader, Sea Watch International “fired” the first tweet. “Liz Truss (the British premier, ed.) Resigned today after only 45 days. We hope that the new Italian prime minister, Meloni, will have a similar, stellar career ».
