Salvini sent a letter to EU

Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini is making good on his pledge to restrict illegal migration into his country.

Late last week, Salvini, head of his country's Ministry of the Interior,†refused to allow a rescue†vessel loaded with shipwrecked Muslim migrants to dock in Italy until the European Union agreed†to transfer those aboard to other sites in Europe.

In a letter to the European Commission, Salvini asked European Union†officials to arrange the relocation, warning: "I have already given indications that a port is not to be assigned before there is the redistribution of all 140 onboard all over Europe."

As of Sunday, none of Italy's fellow EU member states had agreed to redistribute†the migrants.
