Matteo Salvini – Manifestazione Piazza Duomo – 24 Febbraio 2018
Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has been at odds with the European Union over migration since taking power in June. Earlier in the year, he declared that Italian ports were off limits for the Soros-backed ships that enable large numbers of economic migrants to flood the European periphery on their way to the golden land of Germany and other parts of Western Europe where they can get free everything. Now he is taking his battle to the airfields and threatening to close Italian airports to German/EU planes that are rumored to begin flying migrants back from Germany to Italian territory.
“We’ll close our airports like we closed the [sea]ports,” he tweeted today.
This battle is a long way from over and with millions of migrants already on The Continent, one wonders how this will all turn out for Europe. Central Europe has refused to take more migrants since 2015 and the EU has begun ‘infringement actions’ against Hungary, Poland, and the Czech Republic over the issue.

Se qualcuno, a Berlino o a Bruxelles, pensa di scaricare in Italia decine di immigrati con dei voli charter non autorizzati, sappia che non c’è e non ci sarà nessun aereoporto disponibile.
Chiudiamo gli aeroporti come abbiamo chiuso porti.#aeroportichiusi https://t.co/XvYgELGTML
