Italy’s Salvini keeps campaign promise and reduces number of migrant crossings by 80 per cent

Spain now leads in number of migrant crossings than any other European country. Whilst at the same time, crossings into Italy have fallen 80 per cent, Reuters reports.

The European border agency, Frontex, reported that 150,000 migrants entered EU countries illegally in 2018. Spain’s portion of those was double previous years’ having 57,000 using the now most active wroute through Morocco. Iraq and Syrian illegal migrants to Cyprus and Greece were up to 56,000.

On the other hand, Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini has kept his campaign promise of reducing illegal immigration to Italy.

They’ve seen an 80 per cent drop since Salvini said in June, “From today, Italy will also start to say no to human trafficking, no to the business of illegal immigration.” There were 23,000 crossings into Italy, the majority during the first half of the year.
