1. Nobody wants to say what needs to be done about the #RefugeeCrisis. We have allowed this hemisphere to become hell for many people and should not be surprised when they try to escape. The crime is the result of years of corruption amplified by the US thirst for illegal drugs.
2. We need to run up the white flag and declare the #WarOnDrugs lost. I would take control of the opiates on the street provide maintenance drugs and treatment to everyone afflicted. All people who obtain the public drugs would be put in treatment. Addictive drugs like opiates
3. cocaine and amphetamines get priority treatment. Pot would be legal for over 21. No drug abuse would go untreated. Nobody would go to jail for being a drug user. Nobody would make any money from selling illegal drugs. No income would be made by central american gangs here.

The rhetoric of big numbers ('there are 200 milion migrants we need a global response') is producing unplanned side effects. Rightwing parties are using it to mobilize voters against the 'invasion' by foreigners

There is huge confusion on what the #GlobalCompactForMigration is for and what it can do. It is NOT about the 220 million migrants in the world. This figure includes everyone who has left their country of origin for more than 12 months, is also someone who left Italy 18 years ago
What the #GlobalCompactMigration is really about is an infinitesimally smaller number of people who are moving now and what countries could do (it is not binding) to manage this mobility better.

Sea arrivals in #Spain are increasing.
But the closure of a #migration route doesn't mean that automatically migrants just move to a different one. There is little evidence of a 'route replacement' trend.
#migrationEU
This is an important reminder that 'immigration policies' can affect migration flows but are hardly the only factor at play. The drivers of #migration are multiple and can't be reduce to the political will 'at destination'.
There is an overall and significant decrease in sea arrivals, which should be a warning for everyone still using the word 'migration crisis', but this is not the case, see newint.org/features/web-e… #Salvini #Italy
