Rome, August 20 - The only way to stem the throngs
of migrants who brave the perilous crossing from North Africa to
Italy every day is "pushing them back" while still at sea,
Lombardy governor and Northern League leader Roberto Maroni said
Tuesday.
"Endless landings of illegal immigrants in Lampedusa. A
remedy exists: push-backs and bilateral agreements to prevent
them from leaving (Africa). Government wake up!!", Maroni wrote
on Twitter.
The anti-immigrant League was one of the main sponsors of a
controversial 'push-back' policy under the last government of
three-time premier Silvio Berlusconi.
Over 500 migrants, including women and children, were
rescued off the coast of Sicily on Tuesday morning alone after
one of their three boats fell apart at sea.
EU border agency Frontex has sounded the alarm, noting that
over 12,000 migrants landed in southern Italy in the first seven
months of this year, 75% more than last year.
