A ship carrying more than 600 rescued migrants, including 123 unaccompanied minors and seven pregnant women, remained stranded in the Mediterranean Sea on Monday after Italy's new populist government refused to allow it to dock the day before, in a move described by rescuers as unprecedented. Matteo Salvini, Italy's hardline interior minister and leader of the anti-immigration League party, called on the country to "close the ports" and pledged Sunday to "STOP the filthy business of illegal immigration."

A response is yet to be had.

Funny how with The Dotard around this whole thing about human rights, Christianity and family values has been wiped from the slate of those on the right...

...A French NGO's rescue ship, the Aquarius, was given the go-ahead to dock in Spain's eastern port of Valencia on Monday.

"It is our obligation to avoid a humanitarian catastrophe and offer a safe port for these people," Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez's office said in a statement, adding it wanted to comply with its international responsibilities on humanitarian crises. Sanchez, a socialist, issued the instructions after Italy and Malta refused to let it dock.

The French organization SOS Mediterranee said the ship carrying 629 migrants, including 123 unaccompanied minors and seven pregnant women, was picked up off the coast of Libya on Saturday. Among those on board were 400 migrants rescued by the Italian navy and merchant vessels before being transferred to the Aquarius....

If something serious happens in Italy, does this mean no one should take Italian refugees?

Parts of it. But they have openly admitted that for some time in their campaign.

The level of hatred Trump supporters feel toward the poor and the dispossessed is numbing.

As with Syria, nations should be charitable and accommodating ... to a point. The citizens of one country do not get to simply change countries because they don't like the mess they allowed to happen in their own country. In this case, let the defenseless women and children (20%) in and send the working/fighting aged men (80%) back to fix their own country.
