People-traffickers of the Med

Dalrymple notes that of the 629 migrants on the boat that Italy turned away,

more than 100 were unaccompanied minors.

He points out that since they arrived in Libya—their point of departure for Europe—from West Africa,

organised, expensive, and lucrative people-trafficking must be involved.

Moreover,

once they are landed in Europe, their right to family life—the life that domestic legislation in many European countries has been dedicated to smashing up—will be recognised, thus justifying, or mandating, yet more arrivals.
