Here’s a thing I keep noticing, and it drives me nuts.
In Italy, a ship captain is arrested for bringing immigrants to shore after rescuing from them near death at sea:
The number of migrants reaching Italy’s shores has drastically diminished – just 2,800 so far this year – and the country is now led by a right-wing populist coalition elected partly on an anti-migrant platform.
Yet, at the same *exact time* a town in Italy is offering money to people to move there.
…one town in the country is offering foreigners $10,000 to move there. Another says it will even pay newcomers more than $1,000 per child to make babies.The deals may seem too good to be true for many who dream of escaping the rat race for the idyll of a rustic Italian village. For the destinations involved, they represent a last-ditch battle to save the souls of their dying communities.
