Matteo Salvini: ‘I want to govern in order to control immigration’

In an encounter between the Italian press and Matteo Salvini, the leader of the Lega Nord, Salvini gives his opinions about illegal immigrants, mosques, and Islam.

    Salvini is expected to become the next prime minister after elections on March 4, as part of a coalition with Forza Italia (Silvio Berlusconi) and Fratelli d’Italia (Giorgia Meloni).

    Pamela Mastropietro is the name of a woman who was recently murdered and dismembered by a Nigerian immigrant.

    The Nigerian man under investigation for the murder was sentenced to four years of imprisonment, and he will never even see jail, says Salvini.

    “According to any sane person, does this aid peace, serenity and co-existence or does it lead to social conflict?

    “I condemn any type of senseless violence, but I also condemn this government which perhaps actually seeks out this violence.

    Out-of-control immigration leads to social clashes? Yes, I’ve said this for years,” Salvini said. “If there were no illegals dealing drugs on our streets, we’d have fewer crimes and fewer problems, obviously. I want to solve problems.

    “I take notice of the fact that recent governments’ immigration policies have multiplied these problems.

    “I want to govern in order to control immigration and to close mosques…illegal mosques. I want to know who’s financing them and who’s behind them, where the money comes from, who preaches and what he preaches. Because it’s a matter of fact that a literal interpretation of the Quran a woman is worth less than a man, Islamic law supersedes, Italian law and freedom of thought is limited by what the Quran provides for.”

    Earlier, Salvini noted: “In Italy, there are too many illegal immigrants who go around making a mess, I cannot take it anymore,” Salvini told the host of Dimartedì political talk show that aired on La7 news channel. “There are those who use the aircraft to bring immigrants to Italy. I would use them to bring them back home.”

    Poor Italian families were forced out of their homes by the Italian government in winter, so migrants could be put in their homes, while they and their children live in tents.
