Matteo Salvini, Italy’s Interior Minister, has become the most popular politician in the country by keeping his campaign promise and reducing immigration.  Parliament passed legislation to grant asylum only to those fleeing war or who are persecuted.  Migrants who received asylum for humanitarian purposes are likely to be deported when their documents expire.  Salvini also refused to sign the suicidal UN global migration pact.  The popularity of Salvini’s right-wing party, the League, has risen in the polls and nearly doubled in support.

Italy’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, the most popular politician in the country, is one step closer to making good on his campaign promise to deport 500,000 illegal migrants.

From Reuters:

The Italian government passed a law that clamps down on asylum rights and boosts funds for police, handing Interior Minister and right-wing League party leader Matteo Salvini his first major legislative win.

The lower house of parliament voted 396 to 99 late on Wednesday to pass the law championed by Salvini, who took office in June in a coalition with the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement.

The new law eliminates humanitarian grounds for granting protection to refugees — asylum that is not tied to political persecution or war. It also funnels millions of euros to law enforcement and anti-mafia administrators.

 

“I’m willing to host women and children who are escaping from war … But all the others, no,” Salvini said on Thursday, referring to the new legislation. “I don’t want to be seen as an idiot.”

Italy will still award asylum to war refugees or victims of political persecution. But it will no longer hand out “humanitarian” asylum, which was given to those who had “serious reasons” to flee their home country – a category that has often included homosexuals fleeing harsh anti-gay laws in Africa.

More than 20,000 people, or 25 percent of those who sought asylum, got “humanitarian” protection last year, and the tens of thousands of others received it in previous years will now likely lose their legal status when their documents expire.

The League’s lawmakers celebrated the passage of the law on Thursday by unfurling a banner outside the lower house of parliament that read: “The Salvini decree is law; the good times (for migrants) are over.”

The law also allows for migrants to be stripped of their citizenship if they’re convicted of terrorism.

Europe is faced by a MIGRATION issue rather than a refugee issue and migration processes MUST be stopped. In reference to the UN migration compact the EU delegates should not speak on behalf of the EU as a whole as many member countries have just rejected the migration compact. As always, one does not know the UN how far wants to go with this crap, as usual they are creating conflicts and problems instead of looking for solutions. The UN should stop with all this insanity.
