Italy Makes Migrant Deal With Tunisia
Italy and Tunisia have struck a deal to choke off the flood of Tunisians heading to Italian shores, with Rome agreeing to give short-term residency papers to 20,000 illegal migrants but intent on deporting new arrivals.
Italian Interior Minister Roberto Maroni told reporters that the measures would allow Italy “to turn off the faucet” on illegal immigration. Maroni, a key member of the anti-immigrant Northern League ally in Premier Silvio Berlusconi’s coalition, spoke in the Tunisian capital, Tunis, after wrapping up two days of talks to nail down an agreement.
