Italian Populist Salvini’s Migrant Decree Passes Senate Despite Coalition ‘Rebel’ Protest

Breitbart: The migration and security decree that will see humanitarian residency permits scrapped has been passed by the Italian Senate despite a brief rebellion by several Five Star Movement senators.

The decree passed with 163 senators in support, 59 against, and 19 who abstained from the vote with the majority of the support coming from populist Interior Minister Matteo Salvini’s League Party and their coalition partners in the Five Star Movement (M5S), Il Giornale reports.

Four members of the M5S, Gregorio De Falco, Elena Fattori, Paola Nugnes, and Matteo Mantero, opposed the decree and broke with leader Luigi Di Maio.

Due to the behaviour of the four senators, the movement is now looking at an internal investigation of their actions, which sought to disrupt the passage of the decree, though all four abstained from the vote.

“All these irregular immigrants will not disappear by decree,” Paola Nugnes said while Elena Fattori added: “This decree is against everything in the Five Star programme.” more here
