The Italian president of the northern Italian region of Lombardy has said he will no longer allow any migrants to enter the region following the huge rise in people trafficking to Italy.
In comments supported by other senior leaders in the region, Roberto Maroni, former leader of the right-wing Lega Nord, said he had told mayors and other officials in Lombardy to refuse the central government’s demand for the settling of migrants in the region.
Maroni, who has been the region’s president since February 2013, has reinforced his demand by threatening to cut the funding to any municipalities who disobey his banning order.
Veneto regional president Luca Zaia, has already shown his support for Maroni’s views. The fellow right-wing supporter said that the immigration problem was ‘like a bomb ready to go off.’
The news comes after European warships reportedly rescued up to 6,000 migrants in the Mediterranean, attempting to cross into Europe over the weekend.
