Hollywood actor Richard Greer got a rude awakening when Italian populist leader Matteo Salvini rebuked him after he called for a boatload of illegals to be allowed into Italy. As Breitbart reports:

Italian populist Matteo Salvini has rebuked U.S. celebrity Richard Gere over whether a boatload of illegal migrants should be allowed into Italy, suggesting he should look after them in Hollywood.

Salvini, the League (Lega) leader who serves as Italy’s deputy prime minister and minister of the interior in a now-tenuous coalition with the Five Star Movement (M5S), has taken an Australia-style hard line against illegal sea crossings, believing that if it is made clear that migrant transports will not be allowed to land in Italy, fewer people will attempt to make the journey — meaning fewer drownings.

So far, the policy has proved successful, with illegal sea migration and drowning deaths both plummeting— but the NGOs which had been picking up the migrants from small boats off Libya and taking them the rest of the way to Europe are not happy at their “rescue” operations being disrupted...

 

“Given this generous millionaire is voicing concern for the fate of the Open Arms migrants, we thank him: he can take back to Hollywood, on his private plane, all the people aboard and support them in his villas,” he suggested.


The brutal rebuke is a reminder of how out of touch soft-hearted celebrities like Greer are, who don't have to deal with the harsh consequences of illegal immigration.
