After fraudulently designating Tunisia as a safe destination for migrants in 2019, Italy violated European law by deporting these disadvantaged men, women, and children to a country from which they were fleeing due to persecution and economic despair. And, if not immediately deported, Meloni's government places them in unsatisfactory detention centers with little food or care. This must stop, and safe routes to Europe must be implemented as per EU law.
While international governing bodies try to pit Italy and Tunisia against each other, the truth of the matter is that both Meloni and Saied are in agreement on the migrant issue. Tunisia is a stopping point along the way to Italy, which means both nations are dealing with the consequences of Europe's foolish open borders rhetoric. The solution is to stop the root causes of illegal immigration in the first place, not accept hordes of them that make dangerous treks and overwhelm immigration systems.
