8,300 Immigrants From Africa Crossed Italian Borders Over Easter Weakend

19 Apr 2017


8,300 immigrants from Africa crossed Italian borders over Easter Weekend

A record number of sea immigrants crossed the Italian coast to enter Italy from North Africa.  On the eve of the Easter, nearly 8,300 immigrants entered into Italy from North Africa over the weekend. The migrants took an advantage of the pleasant weather conditions and silent seas to make the otherwise perilous crossing.

As reported by the Breitbart News, the Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS) had picked up around 1500 and 1800 men, women, and children over the weekend, whereas search-and-rescue (SAR) confirmed to rescue almost 2,074 immigrants.

The latest figures have revealed that the dozens of the ongoing rescue actions in the Mediterranean have led to the influx of over 8300 immigrants. Most of the immigrants have visited the country from Sahba, which is a migrant camp in Libya.

Italy has seen a rapid increase in the number of the immigrants during the first quarter of the year. Though a new record was set last year but this year the number of immigrants crossed all previous records by a significant increase of 30 percent. A total of 37,000 immigrants have already arrived in Italy during the first four months of the year 2017 itself.

Prime Minister of Italy, Matteo Renzi had cautioned last year that Italy will not survive another year of mass immigration.
