Illegal Migrants In Italy

Posted on: under General

347 illegal migrants landed in Italy on a boat from Tunisia this week.  With thousands arriving since mid-February, Italy’s Interior Minister Roberto Maroni now fears additional illegal migration will also arrive from Libya.

“They are now fleeing to the west [Tunisia] and to the east [Egypt] but I expect in the future they could also head north [towards Italy],” Maroni told parliament.  Even though Maroni warned EU interior ministers of a “catastrophic humanitarian emergency,” some EU officials believe Rome is over-reacting to the situation.  Read more from BBC News.

Do you think Italy is over-reacting about the migration?  If so, what can they do to regulate?
