Reports this month of abuses against African migrants in Libya have sparked anger across the continent however, threatening to drive migration to the top of the summit agenda and shine a spotlight on an issue fraught with political risk.

Italy, on the frontline of the campaign to slow illegal migration to Europe, holds elections early next year and the populist 5-Star Movement is leading opinion polls. The anti-immigrant, eurosceptic Northern League is also gaining support.

PRESIDENT TRUMP HIRED UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS FOR $4 AN HOUR FOR DEMOLITION PROJECT: COURT DOCS

President Donald Trump hired hundreds of undocumented Polish immigrants to demolish a New York City building in 1980 and paid them as little as $4 an hour without providing proper safety equipment to do the job, court documents show.

The workers and their contractor, William Kaszycki of Kaszycki & Sons, sued Trump for unfair labor practices in 1983. After litigation dragged on for 15 years, Trump ultimately paid $1.375 million to settle the case.

Kern Valley State Prison 

Kern Valley State Prison (KVSP) once again adopted Cesar Chavez Preschool in Delano, CA for the 2015 holidays.

The school is organized by the Mexican-American Opportunity Foundation. There are 159 children enrolled in the preschool offering three programs which provide child care and education to migrant workers and their children.

The 2014 Adopt-a-School Christmas Program included gifts distributed by Santa Claus and one of his Elf helpers.  In mid-December, 159 students received a wrapped gift made possible by donations from KVSP staff.

“The generosity and dedication of the Kern Valley State Prison employees once again has given back to the community. What an awe inspiring time watching the children as they received their gifts and celebrated with songs, dancing and performances,” said Warden Martin Biter.
