The Sea Watch Saga (Cont)

Hat tip Vlad Tepes, Gates of Vienna. Translation by Fousesquawk.

For two weeks, another migrant saga is playing out off the Italian coast. The Sea Watch, a ship flying a Dutch flag and operated by a German NGO, has been sitting off the coast of Italy near Lampedusa, prohibited by the Italian government from off-loading some 40+ migrants who were picked up off the coast of Africa. An appeal was filed to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg asking them to order Italy (That's the way things work in the EU.) to offload the migrants. That appeal was denied by Strasbourg except in the case of people needing medical attention.

Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has stated that these migrants should be the responsibility of the Germans and Dutch rather than the Italians. Why should Italy have to accept wave after wave of people plucked out of the sea by ships and NGOs from other countries?

Salvini's video can be accessed below at Vlad Tepes. I am having trouble posting it myself at the direct link (Bitchute).

Soon enough they will all need 'medical attention'!
