Ten NGO Migrant Ships Appear Near Italy as Leftists Plot to Open Borders
Italian Democratic Party pushes to open up ports to third world refugees
Ten shiploads of African migrants have appeared in the Mediterranean Sea as Italy's globalist Democratic Party (PD) pushes to open Italian borders to the third-world.
The NGO (non-governmental organization) ships are adding to the mounting pressure as leftist politicians attempt to overturn populist leader Matteo Salvini's hardline anti-mass-migration policies.
Salvini introduced tough migration and security degrees which effectively closed Italian ports to NGO ferries trafficking migrants from northeast Africa to Italy.
The leader of Italy’s left-wing establishment party (PD), Nicola Zingaretti, has broadcast his intentions to overturn Salvini’s policies, Il Giornale reports.
In preparation for the new policy, NGO human-traffickers are substantially increasing their operations in the search and rescue (SAR) zone off the Libyan coast.
The vessels collect migrants off the coast of Libya and transport them across the Mediterranean to Italy.
A total of ten NGO migrant transport vessels is currently operating in the SAR zone, Il Giornale reports.
Only one of the ships is Italian.

On Monday, the "Mare Jonio," a ship operated by the Italian-based NGO Mediterranean Saving Humans was given permission to dock at a port in Italy to offload 31 migrants.
The German NGO Mission Lifeline’s "Eleonore," despite being banned from entering Italian waters, also was able to disembark 104 migrants on Monday.
Similarly to other NGO ships whose captains have no regard for the law, the Eleonore forced its way into Italian waters.
The vessel was then intercepted by the Italian police and escorted to the Pozzallo port.
After declaring a "state of emergency," Eleonore’s captain Klaus Peter Reisch disregarded the ban and entered Italian waters anyway.
Once all of the migrants onboard the vessel were allowed to disembark, Italian police then seized the ship.
A spokeswoman for the European Commission said that steps to ensure that the migrants are distributed to various European Union member states were being taken.
