Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has vowed to deport over half a million illegal migrants, including Nigerians if he is re-elected.
The octogenarian who criticised the EU for failing to bear Italy’s burden of African migrants warned of a ‘social time bomb ready to explode’, in a recent TV interview.
“Immigration has become an urgent question because, after years with a leftwing government, there are 600,000 migrants who don’t have the right to stay. We consider it to be an absolute priority to regain control over the situation. When we’re in government we will invest many resources in security. We will boost police presence and reintroduce the ‘Safe Streets’ initiative. Our soldiers will patrol the streets alongside police officers,’ “
It’s such a shame that the same old man who previously faced countless trials for fraud, corruption and sex-related offences still has the impudence to declare this publicly. It is an even bigger shame that this is coming barely two days after a Nazi-loving Italian killed six Africans in a targeted shooting at the Italian city of Macerata.
Guess what? African leaders are unlikely to rise and unanimously condemn him because they have not done enough to stem the tide of hazardous illegal immigration to Europe.
