Aquarius migrants step ashore in Spain after week-long ordeal

Aquarius migrants step ashore in Spain after week-long ordeal

The Italian coastguard vessel Dattilo arrived just before 7am yesterday.

The U.S. 6th Fleet said the migrants rescued by its fast transport ship on June 12 were moved to the Italian ships on Sunday near tiny Lampedusa.

Abalos said the Spanish government "will act within the law and with a message to Europe that it doesn't have an immigration policy up to the challenge at hand".

"These people could not be left adrift in the Mediterranean, where they would face death", she told Spanish radio Cope. The Aquarius came hours later with another 106 migrants.

Salvini said he plans to meet this week with Pope Francis, who has dedicated much of his pontificate to urging countries to welcome and integrate migrants.

According to Salvini, a census would allow the authorities to "see who, how (they live) and how many there are".

Salvini refused to permit the migrants saved by the Aquarius to land in Italy.

Most of the 630 migrants rescued off the coast of Libya on June 9 are from Africa, including 450 men and 80 women, as well as 89 adolescents and 11 children under the age of 13, Valencian authorities said.

This is not the end of the story, ' said Jean-Pierre Bernes. " My knee is super good ". He added: "I am with the France team, I am happy to be here".

The Aquarius picked up the 630 migrants off the Libyan coast last week. A private aid ship said it couldn't assume the unexpected passengers from Trenton because Italy wasn't assigning it a port within its navigational capacity.

Interior Minister Matteo Salvini told a Lombardy television station Monday that he wants to conduct a census or "registry" of Roma in Italy. While there is a sense of relief for those who were rescued by the ships, David Noguera, head of Doctors Without Borders in Spain, said he's anxious that other European nations will close themselves off to future rescued migrants.

The Aquarius, operated by Doctors Without Borders, pulled into the port of Valencia. "Finally the Germans, the French, the Belgians, the Dutch and even the Spanish are listening to us", said Salvini, who is also deputy premier and leader of the League party.

France will examine asylum requests from Aquarius migrants who want to come over from Spain on a "case-by-case basis", government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux said Sunday, adding it was "impossible" to know how many will arrive.

It found that only 26 percent of Spaniards feel the arrival of immigrants from outside of Europe is "mainly a problem", compared to an average of 38 percent in the entire European Union.

The warmer weather has caused a spike in migration from North Africa to Europe. Spain's coast guard rescued nearly 1,000 people on Friday and Saturday.

At least 792 migrants have died crossing the Mediterranean so far this year, according to the United Nations.
