#FactOfTheDay 25/19/18- Italian government passes Salvini’s anti-migrant decree

The Italian government has passed a controversial decree, drafted by Matteo Salvini, the far-right interior minister and leader of the League: a decree turned against migrants that will abolish key forms of protection for migrants. Among the measures taken against migrants, we can list deporting them and stripping them of their Italian citizenship more easily. Furthermore, according to this decree, if migrants are found guilty of crimes- such as rape and assault- they could now be expelled. It is noteworthy that previously, this was only possible at the end of lengthy appeals process. Furthermore, if ‘socially dangerous’ asylum seekers- based on Mr. Salvini’s words- are involved with drug dealing or have been convicted of a crime, they will see their applications denied. Matteo Salvini himself talked about the measure as being ‘a step forward to make Italy safer’. Even though this series of tough measures has been approved by Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte’s cabinet, the decree still needs the backing of lawmakers: indeed, Parliament has 60 days to debate and modify it before it becomes a law.
