Migrants: draft legislation to change Bossi-Fini next week

Permits for regular economic migrants to be discussed

12 November, 17:19

    (ANSAmed) - ROME, NOVEMBER 12 - The Lower House next week will resume a debate on legislation proposed by popular initiative "Ero straniero" (I was a foreigner) to change the Bossi-Fini law on immigration by introducing the possibility of regular permits for economic migrants, said the president of the House's institutional affairs commission, Giuseppe Brescia, a member of the 5-Star Movement (M5S).

    Brescia said debate will resume next week after it was presented a year ago by Riccardo Magi (+Europa), who drafted the proposal.

    "Promoting regular immigration, in agreement with the country's productive sectors - said Brescia - needs to be a structural response to fight crime and illegal labor. We say no to initiatives of the past and with these auditions we open in Parliament a debate for an immigration that is able to produce wealth for the State and our companies".

    "Many claim that the decree for annual flows does not guarantee the needs of the labor market anymore", he continued.

    "Data proved this: at the start of July more than 44,000 applications were presented by seasonal workers compared to the 18,000 arrivals authorized. Tomorrow with a question time in the commission I will ask the interior ministry for an update on the applications presented. Reality always speaks louder than propaganda", concluded Brescia.
