'Human lives more important than borders' says Boldrini

War refugees deserve protection says House speaker

(ANSA) - Milan, October 26 - Protecting human lives is more important than defending borders, House Speaker Laura Boldrini said Monday.
    "Protecting our border cannot be held above protecting those fleeing war and human rights violations," she told the Institute for International Policy Studies (ISPI) think tank in Milan in regards to the current refugee crisis.
    "Border protection cannot come before the protection of human beings," she said.
