    According to the annual report unveiled this week by the Italian Ministry of the Interior, some 34 001 migrants arrived illegally in Italy during the year 2020, against 11 439 migrants in 2019.

    In detail, at least 1 458 Algerian undocumented migrants reached Italy via the sea between January 1 and December 24, 2020. Tunisians represent the majority with 12 847 migrants.

    Indeed, according to the Italian daily Corriere delle serra, these undocumented migrants could benefit from humanitarian protection, following a court order in Milan. Thus migrants who do not meet the conditions for asylum or other types of status, will be allowed to stay, said the same source.

    Moreover, this decision can only be taken on a case-by-case basis, after an examination to determine whether the Coronavirus represents a risk factor in the migrant’s country of origin.

    In a message addressed to Algerians on social networks, the Italian ambassador in Algiers, Giovanni Pugliese, mentioned several points which concern the relations between the two Mediterranean countries.

    In order to strengthen the ties of “friendship and political and economic cooperation” between the two countries, the Italian ambassador said he wanted to “strengthen human and cultural ties between the Italian people and the Algerian people through the promotion of the Italian language and the granting of scholarships”.

    The ambassador also spoke about the Italian visa policy, stressing that “the Italian embassy aims to promote an active visa policy” before promising to “double visa centers in Algeria”. Italy “is the only country to have a visa center in the extreme south of Algeria (Adrar)”.

      Italians certainly have cause for concern. Their government has proven completely incompetent in dealing with COVID-19. Worse, throughout the crisis it has imposed a domestic lockdown while following EU policy to keep its borders open to illegal migrants who in many cases have COVID-19, and thus reinfect the country. Utterly demented, but sanity seems in short supply. At any rate, the Italians would be advised to seek an agreement with Algeria similar to that the have with Tunisia, that allowed them to deport the flood of Tunisians that came into Italy earlier this year. Such an agreement, as Free West Media has reported recently, has aided the Spanish to deport illegals from Algeria who have entered the country. Please see: .

        They should deport them, agreement or no agreement. Just load them up on boars and tow them back.

          They should, but they have a leftist government, run by the Democratic Party (i.e., socialist), and an EU-compliant Interior Minister who hasn’t come across a Brussels diktat she didn’t like.

      “after an examination to determine whether the Coronavirus represents a risk factor in the migrant’s country of origin”?? Is Italy actually FAVORING those from the most infected countries, while keeping its own people locked up? They seem bent on destroying Italy sooner, rather than later.
