Update: Record 8.300 Migrants Cross from Africa to Italy over Easter Weekend
-- What is going on with Italy and Immigrants? With other European countries closing boarders, stiffening immigration laws, Italy lets in 8000+ immigrants in one weeekend?
Via Breitbart --
Easter weekend saw a record number of sea migrants into Italy from North Africa, with more than 8,300 migrants taking advantage of the good weather and calm seas to make the perilous crossing.
As Breitbart News reported earlier, the Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS) picked up between 1,500 and 1,800 men, women, and children over the weekend, while other search-and-rescue (SAR) assets rescued another 2,074.
The latest figures reveal that literally dozens of rescue operations in the Mediterranean have resulted in the arrival of over 8,300 migrants as vessels continued streaming in to Italian ports throughout the morning on Monday.
