Immigrazione Lampedusa - Italia ( i continui sbarchi dei migranti)

Lampedusa and Immigrants

Within weeks 7 thousand immigrants from Tunisa arrived on the small island and Lampedusa has become a refugee camp in the open.  Many of the Tunisians speak Italian very well.  They hoped to use the island as a bridge to enter into other EU countries.  A lot of the immigrants have not eaten for days, and Amnesty International reports that there are lots of children without their parents.
Italy has since, divided the immigrants into different regions of Italy and shipped some of them back to Tunisia.
