Via the fake refugees and Daspo to the suspected terrorists. Salvini: “The objective of this government is to close all Rom camps in Italy within the legislature”. Conte explains: “Guarantee for the protection of fundamental rights of persons and international conventions”. Martina (Pd): “More insecurity and more clandestinity”. Cei: do not feed fears for short-sighted interests.
The Council of Ministers approved the so-called “security and immigration decree“.
Among the innovations introduced by the document, some concern the presence and legal status of citizens of immigrant origin on the national territory.
In particular, the residence permit for humanitarian reasons is removed, replaced by the permit for “special reasons”.
Factors such as social danger or a conviction of first instance will result in a halt to the application for international protection.
The Protection System for Asylum Seekers and Refugees (SPRAR) will be reserved for migrants who have already obtained recognition of international protection and unaccompanied foreign minors.
The decree also provides for the revocation of Italian citizenship against those who have been definitively been convicted of terrorism.
The happiness and declarations of Matteo Salvini after the approval of the illustrated provision, then, in a press conference
“The decree was approved unanimously – he began – then it is about enriching it, I accepted proposals that modify the text, a text that is not armored – said Salvini specifying that – It is the most shared, most modified dl more updated in history than at least this government “.
“The humanitarian protection is regulated by six specific cases, there will no longer be the free interpretation of the individual – he asserted during the conference – We‘ll have a recognition of the rights of the true refugees For asylum seekers the suspension of the asylum application is foreseen in case of social danger or in the event of a conviction at first instance “.
In addition, the minister explained that for the drafting of the rule was inspired by an episode of news that took place in Como.
“If the commissioner will consider dangerous – he underlined – an asylum seeker, he can suspend the application“.
Within the provision passed, said the head of the Interior Ministry, there are no ad hoc measures on the Rom – otherwise the uproar would have erupted – but the goal is to close all the Rom camps within the legislature.
After the yes to the security / immigration decree, Matteo Salvini announces the figure that “from October” will be spent by the State for the maintenance of every asylum seeker present in Italy.
How much will be spent for the maintenance of every asylum seeker present in Italy?
A cut that the Minister of the Interior had announced weeks ago and that explained: “We want to reach a European average, cutting a part of these 35 euros and ensuring all the essential services with a much lower amount that I think can come around at 20-22 euros maximum. There will be about a billion savings for the benefit of Italian citizens and that I want to reinvest safely, by hiring new law enforcement agencies. By October we will cut 35 euros “.
The main measures concerning immigration
Salvini decree on immigration and security consists of a total of 42 articles: in the draft entered into the Council of Ministers, those from 1 to 16 contain measures on the issue of residence permits, international protection and citizenship.
Close on permissions;
More offenses for revocation asylum;
More time in the CPR;
3.5 mln on return fund;
Via citizenship for terrorism offenses.
Isaia Sales, well-known essayist and former undersecretary, speaks harshly of how Minister Salvini is managing the fight against the mafias and immigration; indeed, he comments saying: “Salvini protects evil security, its policy on migrants favors terrorism“.
The provision of the Government doesn’t like the center-left opposition. “With Salvini decree – attacks Maurizio Martina, secretary of the Democratic Party – there will be more insecurity and more clandestinity, less rights and less duties, so the country risks“.
Finally president Cei, Gualtiero Bassetti: “Politics does not give in to the temptation to exploit the fears or the objective difficulties of some groups and to use illusory promises for short-sighted electoral interests“.
