All of this could have been avoided if Europe took the measures by Australia and enacted them straight from the beginning.
‘Time to act’ Italy calls for mass migrant deportations as half a million refugees arrive
TERROR attacks across Europe have sparked a new push to see illegal immigrants sent home from Italy as the police are told to toughen up on refugees in 2017.
Paolo Gentiloni will take a much harder stance on the problem than his party colleague Matteo Renzi, under whose leadership hundreds of thousands of migrants entered the EU through Italy.
A two-page directive has reportedly been sent out to police stations across Italy ordering officers to increase efforts to deport economic migrants.
The document was drafted by chief of police Franco Gabrielli and part-published in Italian newspaper Courier della Sera.
Indicating fear of terror in Europe, the notice says the change is important to battle “a growing migratory pressure and an international context marked by instability and threats”.
