Salvini to France: Italy Will No Longer Accept All Migrants Arriving in Europe by Chris Tomlinson for Breitbart

Italian populist interior minister Matter Salvini has declared his country will no longer take in all migrants arriving in Europe in a letter to French interior minister Christophe Castaner.

“The choices made only in Paris and Berlin are enough, Italy is no longer willing to accept all immigrants arriving in Europe,” Salvini told his French counterpart, France Info reports.

“France and Germany can not decide on migration policies by ignoring the demands of the most exposed countries like us and Malta,” he added.
