Thousands of migrants continue to swarm the tiny Italian island of Lampedusa in the days since more than 6,000 arrived in just 24 hours, according to reports.
The ongoing invasion of Italy’s southernmost island, which lies just 60 nautical miles from the Tunisian coast, hit ‘apocalyptic’ levels earlier this week when as many as 8,000 illegal migrants invaded in more than 160 ramshackle watercraft launched from Africa.
Since then, at least 1,000 more migrants, virtually all of whom are military-age males from Africa, have arrived in Lampedusa, and reports indicate as many as 10,000 more are on their way.
Footage depicting staggering scenes of chaos on the island has been circulating on social media, with Italian reporters at Radio Genoa calling the situation a “real unprecedented apocalypse.”
Migrants have been committing crimes, fighting with law enforcement, and terrorizing local residents – of which there are only around 6,000.
On Wednesday, Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini called the stunning influx of illegals a “declaration of war on Europe,” warning mass migration could “collapse Italian society as a whole.”
“Faced with the arrival of thousands of people, we cannot speak of spontaneous and isolated episodes, but of an act of war,” Salvini said.
“These landings are desired and organized and represent the symbol of a socialist-led Europe, distant from the needs of its citizens, starting with the Italian ones.”
