Asylum seeker’s fate get worse in Italy. Deportation to increase!

Asylum seeker’s fate get worse in Italy. Deportation to increase!

Asylum seekers flee Trump in the United States. Germany to deport 12, 000 Nigerian asylum seekers next year. Italy to increase deportation of rejected asylum seekers.

The number of possible appeals to an asylum ruling by a state committee in Italy has been cut from three to two.

This means deportation process of those whose appeals are rejected will be faster and the pressure on asylum centers in Italy will be eased.

Also, asylum seekers fleeing poverty will be sent home from Italy’s hotspot.

Hotspot is a migrant center set up by Italy to house and process asylum permits, distinguishing those who truly face persecution from that fleeing poverty.

Prime Ministers Paolo Gentiloni’s government is bent on speeding up asylum process to ease and reduce the pressure on the government as thousands of asylum seekers arrive in Italy yearly.

Justice Minister Andrea Orlando says. “The process will be much more streamlined but people’s rights will not be diminished”.

Humanitarian groups have come out against shortening the court process, calling it unconstitutional and saying migrant rights’ would suffer.
A record of 181,000 boat migrants arrive in Italy last year and 60% of the 124,000 bids put forward were rejected.
