Italy’s Salvini sparks outcry over Roma census plans

Peace and Freedom

Italy’s far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini on Tuesday defended his plans to count the Roma community living in the country and deport those without legal status, despite outrage at home and abroad.

“I’m not giving up and I’m pushing ahead! The Italians and their safety first,” Salvini tweeted, after opposition MPs slammed the idea of a census as “racist” and “fascist.”

Salvini — already under fire when he refused last week to let a rescue ship carrying 630 migrants land in Italy — had floated the plan on national television on Monday.

A census would allow the authorities to “see who, how (they live) and how many there are,” he argued.

It would then allow the authorities to study the possibility of expelling Roma of foreign nationality without the proper documentation, he said.

Immigration Enforcement: Another Reason Why We Need Smart, Moral Cops

Improving Police

“Mr. Attorney General, we will hold illegal border crossers as you wish, but we will NOT separate minor children from their parents!”

Most of us are shocked by our nation’s recent decision to separate children from their parents who are illegally entering the United States. As I understand it, prior to the present decision, illegal immigrants and their children remained together and the adults were given a court date which required their appearance at a future date. Illegal immigration was not a felony crime. Now one can argue about whether this is good or bad public policy, but, that’s the way it was.

Now comes our U.S. Attorney General who wants to get tough on immigration. He uses Christian scriptures (Romans 13), that Christians should obey the laws of civil government, to justify his toughness. (Deftly avoiding the issue of just versus unjust laws).

So now the border police are…
