Surveillance footage taken by Frontex shows criminal traffickers unloading 81 African mainly Muslim illegal migrant wannabes from a fishing vessel onto a smaller boat just off the coast of Italy.
Summit News “A surveillance plane belonging to the European Union’s border force, Frontex, captured footage of the smugglers at work, about 100 kilometres south of the island of Lampedusa,” reports EuroNews.
After unloading the migrants, the fishing boat sailed back towards Libya but was later intercepted by an Italian patrol boat. Frontex were alerted to the fishing trawler after it was spotted towing an empty wooden boat at high seas.
“This was clearly the case of a “mother boat” used by criminals to carry a large group of illegal migrants across the sea towards their destination before unloading them onto a smaller boat,” said Frontex. The people smugglers were later arrested and the migrant boat intercepted, with the illegal migrants being sent back to Libya.
The media narrative surrounding boat migrants routinely absolves criminal people smugglers of blame for facilitating the process. Many George Soros-funded NGOs have been accused of working with people smugglers as part of these human trafficking operations.
Since Matteo Salvini came to power in Italy and instituted a new policy deterring boat migration, the number of migrant deaths in the Mediterranean has halved…and the number of illegal alien arrivals cut by about 95%.
