The President of the Sicilian Region, Nello Musemeci, has announced the immediate evacuation of all detention centers for immigrants in the region, including the island of Lampedusa, due to the “invasion of migrants”.
“Sicily cannot continue to suffer this invasion of migrants. In a few hours, the order in which I am ordering the evacuation of all detention and reception centers will be on my table,” said Musumeci.
“An airlift will be activated immediately and Sicily will be freed from these shameful structures, starting with Lampedusa,” Musumeci riveted.
In particular, it is denounced that European and Italian standards have been violated. “Europe is pretending that nothing is wrong and, despite our demands, the national government has decided not to apply the current laws and not to close the ports, as was the case last year,” said then Interior Minister Matteo Salvini.
