Libya has declared a SAR rescue zone north of its coast which will extend perhaps 100 km or more from the coast. NGO vessels will not be allowed to enter, except on request from Libyan authorities, who will coordinate all rescue activities in this SAR by Libyan coast guard.

Italy will support the Libyan coast guard with air surveillance.

In parallel Libyan authorities wit EU help are trying to clamp down illegal human trafficing and to uncover terrible slave-like conditions for migrants in the hands of the smugglers in hideaways, where the criminal human trafficers try to hide the migrants from official Libyan authorities.

Unfortunately Swedish news do not report this very promising new strategy.

Support for the new strategy comes also from pope Fransesco, who highlights that it is not ethical correct to blindly follow naivity (referring to some NGO activities).

This might combat the problem from Libya to Italy/Greece.
But it still does not solve the problem of the current influx, smuggled into the EU.
The open borders between EU states due to "free movement" is a failure.

Unless the borders are closed between EU states, the smugglers are taking full advantage of the situation, whether it is from Libya, or within Europe. Trafficking is a billion dollar business.

The whole of North African coast is the HQ for smugglers.
As said, Libya was just the beginning.

How much do you think the boat + person cost.
This is the problem. But Spain is in need of refugees, to be honest.
They have high unemployment, aging population, and may revive some small villagers.

So on an economic perspective, Spain may benefit from economic migrants who are looking for work (especially as if initial cost comes from EU commission).
Common sense would be for EU to have a new visa type just for economic migrants - not work permit.

Spain has an unemployment rate of 18% and youth unemployment rate of 39%, how on earth would the country being filled with economic migrants from Africa be of any use? If their holiday hot spots start becoming overrun with these migrants their tourism industry would take a beating.

EU commission pays for every "asylum" seeker.
Only use, is the villages, who are in need of people who can do the hard labor in the farms.

Millennials do not return back to the villages, they move to the cities for work, obviously. But there is no stopping economic migrants. Not anytime soon.

It is better they just find a solution rather than just have them sitting idle while their application is in the process of being rejected.
What do they do all day?
