Huge surge in Italy migrant arrivals despite PM Meloni's 'naval blockade' pledge
By Andrea Carlo Updated: 12/01/2023
The new PM’s first two full months in office -- November and December -- saw almost 20,000 migrants arrive by boat: a sharp rise from the same months the year before when there were 12,600 migrant landings.
The upsurge in arrivals by boat in the first ten days of 2023 has been even more dramatic: 3,709 so far this year compared to just 378 during the same time period in 2022, marking an 881% increase.
