Italy: Giorgia Meloni Says Italy Needs Migrants


This bitch was elected on claims she was going to stop migrants!

She quadrupled them, then started going apeshit about wanting to kill Putin!

This is the funniest thing.

You are so stupid for electing a woman.

When has this ever worked???

The Telegraph:

Italy needs migration, Giorgia Meloni said as she sought to win support from African nations on a plan to curb human trafficking into Europe.

The hard-Right prime minister, who came to power on a pledge to block migrant boats in the Mediterranean, softened her rhetoric in an attempt to build alliances with the nations migrants leave or pass through.

Ms Meloni convened a summit, of more than 20 nations and top EU officials, in Rome after largely failing to control migrant flows in the first months of her term.

Addressing an audience that included Tunisia’s president as well as representatives from Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East, she said that everyone was harmed by illegal migration.

“No one benefits from this,” she said, “except criminal groups who get rich at the expenses of the most fragile and use their strength even against the governments.”

Ms Meloni proposed working more closely with countries of origin to manage migrant flows and fight criminal traffickers.

However, she said that she was open to creating more legal routes into her country as “Europe and Italy need immigration”.

Earlier this month, Italy pledged to issue 425,000 new work visas for non-EU nationals from 2023 to 2025, increasing the number of permits available each year to a high of 165,000 in 2025. In 2019, before Covid struck, Italy issued just 30,850 visas.

Critics on the Right have accused Ms Meloni, the leader of the ruling Brothers of Italy party, of abandoning her principles after taking power.

The Italian prime minister told the conference that Western arrogance had hampered finding a solution to migrant flows, which have surged this year.

More than 83,000 migrants have landed in Italy this year, compared with about 34,000 in the same period in 2022.

Elsewhere on Sunday, Pope Francis called on European and African governments to help migrants trapped in desert areas in north Africa, and to ensure that the Mediterranean was never again “a theatre of death” for those attempting to cross.

It is not even a joke that Italy would have done better if they’d elected the leftist.

The leftist wouldn’t have been so insane about the Ukraine war, and they wouldn’t have brought in this many invaders.

Hopefully, someone learned a lesson here.

But I doubt it.
