As the upcoming elections nears, former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has upped the ante on his coalition partner populist Lega leader Matteo Salvini vow to deport 500,000 what he calls “criminal migrants” in 5 years. Berlusconi wants to deport 600,000 as quickly as possible, leaving only 30,000 Muslim legal asylum seekers in Italy.
Breitbart “The migration issue is extremely serious, with 630,000 migrants in Italy, only 30,000 having the right of asylum because they fled war and death, the other 600,000 being a time bomb that can explode at any moment because they are living off crime,” Berlusconi said.
The bombastic billionaire made his comments following the brutal murder of 18-year-old Pamela Mastropietro by Nigerian Muslim migrant drug dealer Innocent Oseghal last week (photos below).
On Sunday, Mr. Salvini also commented on the brutal murder which saw Ms. Mastropietro killed and dismembered. “In Italy, you have to respect the rules and you have to expel migrants without a residence permit, who are living off drug trafficking,” he said.
Italy may also be facing another wave of illegal immigrants as reports have revealed that the number of migrants crossing the Mediterranean from Libya has significantly increasedin recent weeks.
