EU: Mostly Illegal Migrants Now Entering Italy; EU Plans to Cut Flow of African Illegal Migrants

European Union (EU) officials -- including EU Council President Donald Tusk -- have admitted most of the migrants coming from Africa into Italy are not legitimate refugees or asylum seekers, but illegal migrants, the Breitbart website reports today (June 24, 2017).

Tusk said that illegal migration had gone up 26 percent in Italy compared to last year.

He added the current EU policy was "not enough" and the Mediterranean route needed to be controlled, proposing the EU support the Libyan coastguard.

The EU also plans to work closer with Libya and other countries in north Africa in order to ease the return of illegal migrants.
