Human Traffickers Arresting in Spain for Smuggling Migrants
Four people were arrested in the Ceuta territory of Spain for Human trafficking. The alleged criminals were using speedboats to move migrants quickly across the sea from Africa.
“Such were the profits of the organisation that its members found it better to devote themselves to this criminal field rather than that related to drugs,” police said in a statement.
Since the beginning of the year, 40,600 migrants have arrived in Spain by sea. There have been another 398 in casualties in the process according to the International Organisation for Migration. This is three times the number of people from this time last year.
Government crackdowns are becoming more common as Italy, Hungary, Austria, Poland, and Romania voice their opposition to migration.
“They should know that Italy no longer wants to be an accomplice in the business of illegal immigration and therefore they will have to aim for other, non-Italian, ports,” Salvini said.
