Buon Lavoro, Italia!

Italy has rejected a record 24,800 asylum applications in the last four months, and aid groups say hardline policies introduced by the rightwing populist government are beginning to have a devastating effect on migrants in the country.

The rejections were up 25% on the previous four months, from June to September 2018, and coincide with the bringing into law of the Salvini decree on immigration, named after the far-right interior minister, Matteo Salvini.

The decree suspends the asylum application process for individuals considered to be “socially dangerous” and also removes permission to remain for some of those denied formal refugee status but who are unable to return home.

And it’s not often a Brit says that!

    I particularly liked the removal of status. Won’t be long before everyone starts rolling that out, including our scumbags.

    If they’re up 25% then the number of ‘applications’ must be phenomenal.

    And what about those who don’t bother to applly, but just disappear into the population and black market?

    You wouldn’t mind so much if the Lefties who brought them here were forced to pay for them and be imprisoned along with their crimes, but they don’t. It’s us who is forced to shell out.
