Europe is again debating who should look after refugees and migrants who've risked their lives to escape war and violence in their own countries.
More than 500 who are stuck on rescue boats in the Mediterranean Sea have nowhere to go.
Italy and Malta have refused them entry, and no European country has offered to take them in.
Italy's anti-immigrant Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini is riding high in opinion polls, and is hoping to force a snap election.
Statistics show migrant arrivals in Italy have fallen by nearly 80% over the past year.
So is being tough on migration the answer for the rest of Europe?
