The mayor of the Italian island of Lampedusa, destination for many migrants setting off from Tunisia, complained on Sunday that his town was on the verge of societal collapse.
Groups of migrants were flouting laws, harassing women and getting drunk, Mayor Salvatore Martello said in an open letter to Italian news agency ANSA and in comments to Italian news outlets.
"Threats, harassments, thefts, Lampedusa is about to collapse," Martello wrote, calling for the closure of the "useless" migrant center on the island. "Police are powerless," he wrote.
"The bars are full of Tunisians who are drunk and harass women. I receive tens of messages from frightened tourists, hoteliers, traders and restaurateurs who suffer daily."
After a decade out of power, Martello was re-elected recently as mayor of Italy's southernmost island, which over the past 20 years has become a primary entry point for migrants to Europe. At times its temporary migrant population has outnumbered the island's 6,000 permanent residents.

These creatures are NOT immigrants. They are NOT refugees.
They are INVADERS. Kick them out! If necessary, PUT THEM ON BOATS AND DUMP THEM ASHORE WHERE THEY EMBARKED FROM.
Pope Frankie ain’t gonna like that.
Priest denies problems
The island’s parish priest said he was surprised by Martello’s comments, in comments to La Stampa(Italian language).
“He said the recent Tunisian arrivals were “very young and certainly noisy,” but that the island remained calm and it was possible to live there. He said he had recently brought a delegation to the island and that the migrants remained almost invisible.
“I’m not at all aware of disturbances or crimes.” He said it was probable that Martello was seeking to boost his political position.”
Pope Dope II sent the word out. The Mayor of Lapmedusa should take them all, put them on buses and drive them to Vatican City and dump them all out there. In a very short time the Romans will remove this idiot pope and replace him with a rational mind.
The mayor speaks the truth. The politicians in Rome have sacrificed Lampedusa to the invading hordes of goat-porkers.
a country either defends itself or it goes down the toilet
certainly Italy should realize this, based on its history

Where’s the mafia when you need them?
The mafia supports the invasion.
I would say martial up a militia but you’re outnumbered and probably outgunned.
They’ve invaded and took your island.
Now there are a bunch of Lampedusa folk singers.
