The Berlin prosecutor’s office has announced that 1,900 police officers are searching premises in the German capital as part of large scale human trafficking operation. 

Authorities tweeted Wednesday morning that federal police are searching 100 homes and businesses all over the city as the probe gathers pace.

The investigations are based on allegations of human trafficking for work exploitation, along with organized trafficking of foreigners to work in construction, the prosecutor’s office said.

Human trafficking and link to EU migrants

The news comes a month after Italy's populist leader Matteo Salvini rejected the EU's globalist migrant plan, vowing instead to "crush human trafficking."

Italian Interior Minister Salvini refused to change his country's position on mass-migration during emergency talks in Helsinki on the distribution of Mediterranean migrants.

The discussion in Finland's capital was regarding the formation of a coalition of countries within the European Union who would open up their borders to accept mass-immigration from mostly African nationals.
