Rome, August 1. (askanews) – “We know that immigration is a lasting phenomenon and cannot be addressed with an emergency logic, but now we are in an exceptional condition. The government cannot invoke the health alarm to ask for more powers and then not to exercise them also to prevent uncontrolled entrances from causing a new surge in infections. We have closed the borders for months, even to our compatriots living abroad, we do not let them become a colander today. ” This was stated by Mara Carfagna, vice-president of the Chamber and deputy of Forza Italia.
“I have always been in favor of a line that combines humanity and rigor. For this reason I continue to believe that a solution can only be found by signing serious and binding agreements with the countries of origin and transit, addressing the issue in a unitary and united way in Europe and investing in international cooperation “, Carfagna continues.
“People who are at sea must be saved, there is no doubt about this. But we must originally prevent those people from leaving, we must block all routes, from the Balkan to the Libyan one, to the Tunisian one recently returned to reopen. It is a matter of national security and health “, concludes the president of ‘Voce libera’. “We cannot risk that the infections return uncontrolled, that citizens are again denied fundamental rights and that the economic system collapses definitively”.
