The Invasion of Europe (Immigration run amok): Italian Towns Push Back on Growing Burden of Europe’s Migrant Crisis

The Italian government is locked in a battle with local towns and regions that are resisting—and even ignoring—demands from Rome to resettle the surging number of migrants in their areas.

This month, at least 20 mayors threatened to resign or occupied buildings together with residents to block the arrival of migrants sent by the government. Local associations have organized street protests.
“We should all be doing our part to deal with [finding accommodation for] migrants,” said Mario Morcone, head of migration for Italy’s Interior Ministry. “But this is not happening. It’s really frustrating.”
In the past couple of weeks alone, about 15,000 migrants have arrived by boat in Italy. Mr. Morcone expects 2015 to see as many as 200,000 boat people, surpassing the 170,000 who came last year. Since Friday, Italian authorities have rescued nearly 600 migrants, including many from one vessel that was close to sinking. Those migrants will add to those the Interior Ministry is already struggling to provide shelter and care.

3 of the comments on this article from the WSJ say it all:
Unmentioned in the article is the main cause of the influx: Nato, Hillary, and Obama's toppling of Libya's Gaddafi.
"As long as Italy and the rest of the EU accept illegal immigrants there will be a constant supply of desperate people taking whatever transport they can to get to Italy.
If you want to stop the deaths and misery at sea, start preventing people from crossing and sending back those who do."
This is exactly what should (and I hope will) happen here in America regarding the large number of illegals who are here and keep coming here. I'm already doing my part to make these people, along with those in the government who elevate above American citizens, feel extremely unwelcome.
Absent federal action to reverse course I would not be surprised at all to see a rise in the number of very activist citizens' group that go beyond being vocal to push back against these leeches and those in the federal government and state governments who aid them.
