The definitions and explanations are foggy and require some surgical dissection in some cases under a new directive from the Italian government. It states that they will now seek to deport more migrants who have no right to be in the country and will open new detention centers to hold them before their expulsion.
There are quite a lot of undefined variables in that policy. What determines which illegals the Italian Government picks up and holds and how many? What is the difference between “seeking to deport” and deporting. How many will “more” actually turn out to be – one, ten, thousands, hundreds of thousands? Is this just a poorly thought out public relations stunt intended to quiet dissent following the ousting of former Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi?
On Friday, Police chief Franco Gabrielli sent out a two-page directive to stations across the country ordering them to increase efforts to identify and deport migrants following the Berlin Christmas market attacker, Anis Amri, being shot and killed on their own soil, near Milan.
Utilizing extremely vague and convoluted wording, the directive mandated police to take “extraordinary action” before the “growing migratory pressure in an international context marked by instability and threats” to “control and remove irregular foreigners.”
Irregular foreigners, meaning in all likelihood the illegal aliens, aren’t the entirety of the problem. Why are they leaving out the Muslim component, as is often the case with cowardly officials. Their status as legal or illegal is irrelevant, they’re all a potential threat. Perhaps they recognize this as their reality, and it may be that they are unwilling to make the public declaration, prefering to choose their battles for the time being.
Interior Minister Marco Minniti announced plans to open multiple new detention holding centers for those awaiting and being processed for their expulsion. This is the first major policy change made by the new government of Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, which took over following the resignation of Renzi in mid-December. Renzi had refused to build such detention facilities for those who “did not qualify” for refugee status. They’re postponing the inevitable and only making it more difficult once the time for a purge of the threat becomes inescapable, but at least they are starting to move in the right direction.
At present four pre-deportation detention centers exist with a total of approximately 360 beds. The Interior Ministry has plans to open 16 more with capacity for a minimum of 1,000 additional detainees. That represents a token amount of the illegal alien population presently in Italy. In 2015 27,000 expulsion orders were given with fewer than 5,000 actual deportations. Thousands more exist outside of the system.
The time will come where trucks, buses and boats will become the means by which Italian sovereignty is regained. Processing should be a matter of interdicting vessels prior to docking, seizing those vessels as necessary to interrupt the flow, and repatriating the occupants to their native countries or to the country, such as Turkey or Libya, from which they began their trip to Europe. Ships serve as excellent detainment and processing centers and don’t require additional construction. If they do need more capacity, simply confiscate the vessels of the traffickers, and lock them up.
It’s really not as complicated as their “solutions” and their directives make things out to be.
