Richard Gere -the actor- I like him a lot, been in some good movies.
Richard Gere -the person- don't really care.

I admire anyone who sticks up for their cause in a peaceful non- violent manner. IMO non violent doesn't apply to far left/right groups..they are already known to use violence on multiple occasions.

That being said.......I nominate Richard Gere to play Epstein in the movie....he could pull it off.

Why would people with little infants risk this trip?

Probably because they do not have the conditions to be left behind. If only the man supports the family and he goes away then the family doesn't have any income during the time the man is looking for a job, so the best option is to move the whole family.

If there’s proof of trafficking, then the ships shouldn’t be aloud to dock. But they should be escorted safely back and the passengers protected and fed if necessary en route.

This should be funded by the EU and any parties making profits from the fled regions.

The UNHCR and IOM have said that the migrants should not be returned to where they came from .. .

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) have both called on European nations to take in the 43 migrants, arguing that they should not be returned to Libya.
(bold emphasis, mine)

Also .. .

Why safe ports in nearby African countries such as Tunisia are unsuitable was not made clear.

Does anyone know the reason such countries are unsuitable?

Oh I get it...... They can't go to Libya because Europe had a major hand in destroying Libya and letting slave markets and Human trafficking develop.

Instead, they should just be allowed to go to Europe, the very nations who caused this misery, along with the U.S.

Brilliant plan.

How many do they have to let in?
It's a serious question.
