A town in Italy with only seven inhabitants — seven — is being told to take in 80 migrants from mostly Muslim nations.
Talk about a culture shock.
The mayor, rightly so, has deemed the demand a total upheaval.
Police and migrants have already been involved in several clashes over the months.
This new demand isn’t like to calm tensions between citizens and migrants.
Jihad Watch has more:
“Seven people and eighty migrants. The Mayor: “Upheaval of our territory,” translated from “Sette abitanti e ottanta migranti. Il sindaco: “Territorio stravolto,” La Stampa, November 10, 2017:
In Contrada Vaccarozzi (Verona), there is no barricade, but there is mistrust. The refugees are in a former NATO barracks. The co-op reassures: they will be monitored.
He is a farmer. “I’m afraid to go outd at night. What can we do, seven against eighty?
Welcome to “Profugoland.” Welcome to the Vaccarozzi district of Erbezzo above Verona, 1185 meters above sea level, seven people, two of whom are extremely elderly, with nearby caretakers, and 26 refugees, destined to become 80 soon. With a ratio of almost 11 to 1, this destroys the very optimistic claim of Minister of Interior Marco Minniti, that the refugees would be 3 every 1,000 inhabitants. The Mayor of Erbezzo, Lucio Campedelli…makes the statement: “The sending of 80 refugees to our territory is to completely overthrow it. We were only told just before the summer that they would arrive. We cannot do anything with it. As an administrator, I do not want to throw gas on the fire, but I hope that they will stop at least with these 26.”
The first 26 arrived just two days ago….They are Ghanaians, Nigerians, New Guinea, Sudanese, and Ivory Coast. All men. All still traumatized by the barge crossing and, it is also thought, by the fog from the rain and the cold that hammers these hills…
The refugees for now are housed in the former NATO barracks managed by the Prefecture of Verona…”To send them here is madness. The total upheaval of our territory. Even sending two here would be too many if we did not ask for them….”
