Lega's Matteo Salvini wants to deport 500,000
President Sergio Mattarella is expected to approve the formation of a Government following the successful conclusion of negotiations between the anti-establishment Five Star Movement, led by Luigi Di Maio, and Matteo Salvino’s Lega party.
One of their stated policies is the removal of 500,000 immigrants, and both parties are committed to renegotiating EU rile which require migrants to be dealt with by the first country they arrive in.
They have also said they will build more more detention centres and review the policy of saving the lives of migrants whose boats capsize.
In addition, the coalition’s manifesto also calls for the renegotiation of various EU treaties, including the Stability and Growth Pact, which sets a tough budget deficit limit of 3 percent of GDP.
They are also seeking the cancellation of €250billion in Italian government debt by the European Central Bank, and a revision of Italy’s contribution to the EU budget.
Mr Salvini has said the deportation of undocumented migrants was ‘a priority’, and has pledged to rid the country of what he called ‘delinquents’.
Leader Luigi Di Maio's Five Star Movement is going into coalition with Lega
Luigi Di Maio, the Five Star leader, said money to fund tax cuts would be found through investments coupled with the results of the EU budget budget negotiations.
Lorenzo Fontana, a top Lega official, told Politico: “We think that people come ahead of economic obligations and that it’s not possible to impoverish citizens in order to respect constraints decided by others.
“The people come before the economy. For too long these priorities have been backwards.”
Five Star’s Alfonso Bonafede said: “We’ve always been critical of the excessive budgetary restrictions imposed by the European treaties.
“They impede expansive polices in periods of recession or stagnation, damaging not just the Italian economy but putting at risk the financial and political fabric of the entire European Union.”
Their stance, especially on the subject of migrants, is likely to raise tensions throughout the bloc, especially given that Dutch migration minister Mark Harbers earlier this month caused Italy of failing to register migrants properly before allowing them to “slip into Europe” leaving other countries such as his own to deal with the problem.
In a letter to the European Commission, he challenged assurances offered by the EU’s governing body which stated that “the registration and fingerprinting of migrants arriving in Greece and Italy has reached a rate of almost 100 percent”.
Mr Harbers said: “95 percent of irregular migrants and asylum seekers arrive from other Schengen states.
“This means about two thirds still manage to enter and travel through other member states undetected and unregistered, despite all measures taken to improve registration.
“The Netherlands ends up granting protection to large numbers of asylum seekers who consciously refuse to apply for protection in the member state of first arrival.”

Is EU’s Worst Nightmare Becoming Real in Italy as Far Left and Far Right Join Talks to Form a Eurosceptic Government
Posted on May 10, 2018
United against Brussels? After months of deadlock, Italy’s antagonist Eurosceptic Left and Right parties, who won the most votes, mull a coalition government! In what will surely be a double whammy blow to the supremacist European Union, Italy’s anti-establishment 5-Star Movement and the anti-immigrant Lega are reportedly close to forming a coalition government. Despite lying on opposite ends of the political spectrum, both parties share Eurosceptic views.
Italy’s March 4 parliamentary elections resulted in a crushing defeat for ruling centre left Democratic Party, with Lega taking 37 percent of the vote, and 5-Star finishing not far behind with 32 percent. However, without a majority in parliament, both parties have struggled unsuccessfully to form a new government on their own.
The political deadlock was so bad that President Sergio Mattarella recently signaled that he would nominate a political outsider to head a “neutral” technocratic government, and make preparations for new elections. However, Mattarella agreed to halt his plans on Wednesday after 5-Star and Lega said that negotiations about the formation of a coalition government were making progress – but that the two factions would need more time to iron out a deal.
“We still need to talk about programs, things to do, taxes, labor, pensions, immigration, schooling,” Lega leader Matteo Salvini told reporters after meeting with 5-Star head Luigi Di Maio.
5-Star has repeatedly offered to form a government with their right-wing rivals, but only on the condition that the new coalition exclude former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi and his Forza Italia party – a Lega ally. Salvini had previously rejected the idea of abandoning his party’s alliance with Berlusconi, but the former prime minister has apparently given Lega the green light to pursue a coalition government with 5-Star, saying that he wouldn’t support the coalition in parliament, but would maintain ties with the party at a local level.
Before the March elections, Berlusconi branded 5-Star as a “sect”whose politicians are “worse than Communists”. But apparently even Berlusconi’s open disdain for 5-Star has not prevented Italy’s far-right and far-left from joining forces. Together, the two parties already form a Euroskeptic majority in parliament.
What unites Lega and 5-Star?
Despite any differing views, the two parties unite when it comes to Euroskeptic policies. One of their major points of contention with the EU is what they view as budget limitations imposed by Brussels.
Both parties strongly reject what they see as the elitist, old-fashioned style of mainstream Italian politics. Between them they hold a majority in both houses of parliament.
They admire US President Donald Trump and Russia’s Vladimir Putin and advocate lifting sanctions against Russia.
They both want to lower the retirement age and take a tough stance on immigration.
Both believe that austerity has damaged Italy, and that economic expansion through additional spending and tax cuts is the only way to restore growth. A deal between the two parties would likely see a disregard for the EU’s calls for budgetary corrections, as Lega’s leader Matteo Salvini has already said he would implement policies that are the “opposite” of what Brussels wants.
Both parties are critical of Italy’s use of the euro, with Lega being the most outspoken critic of the bloc-wide currency. Its leader, Matteo Salvini, has repeatedly called the euro a failed currency that is bound to collapse and only benefits Germany. The Five Star Movement has called for a referendum on euro membership, with the party’s founder recently stating that goal. However, the party’s political leader, Luigi Di Maio, says such a move would only be a “last resort” if the EU doesn’t change its economic policies.
The two parties have also been extremely critical towards new EU banking rules, specifically “bail-in” requirements that force holders of banks’ junior debt to take losses. They also believe that nationalization of weaker banks would be a desirable alternative to recapitalizations or resolutions under EU rules.
When it comes to trade, the two parties are equally discontent with current EU policies. Among their desired changes would be to restore protections and subsidies for Italian farmers. They also believe that the current government has been too welcoming of foreign investment, pushing Italian companies into a vulnerable position.
Lega also takes a stricter view towards immigration than the EU, particularly as Italy is a stopping point for boats arriving across the Mediterranean from North Africa. The party has vowed to deport more than 500,000 migrants who have arrived to the country over the past four years. Although 5-Star has been less vocal on the matter, it too leans to the right when it comes to immigration.
Regional divide
The League was founded in 1989 as a northern Italian movement demanding independence from the country’s impoverished south. Matteo Salvini broadened it into an Italian nationalist movement when he took the reins in 2013. But the League still wants greater autonomy for the north to manage its riches.
M5S has deep roots in the south, where it has promised to invest heavily.
The two are also more likely to seek stronger ties with Moscow, rather than the EU and the US, when it comes to major international issues. Both parties have also been skeptical of Italy’s NATO membership.
A coalition between 5-Star and Lega could in many ways mirror Austria’s current Euroskeptic government, which has defied Brussels with its anti-immigrant stance – and refusal to burn bridges with Moscow
Salvini, who would likely play a leading role in the proposed coalition, may help to bring similar policies to Rome. In an interview, the Lega leader said that Russia, in terms of culture, “has much more in common with Europe than does a country like Turkey,” adding: “It’s not like Putin calls me every night, but it strikes me as counter-productive to fight with a neighbor like Russia.”
