The French Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, traveled to Italy this Monday to discuss how to help the Government of this country control the border to prevent the arrival of immigrants.
Prevent the avalanche of immigrants to Lampedusa and quickly expel those without papers. The French Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, traveled to Italy this Monday to meet with his Italian counterpart, Matteo Piantedosi, and reiterated France’s willingness to help Italy control its border and prevent irregular arrivals. For his part, the UN high commissioner for refugees puts a stop to political discourse.
“There has been so much politicization of this that politicians need brief solutions, they need slogans that say: ‘We are at the limit’. It doesn’t work like that. We have to explain to public opinion that these are complex issues that require time, resources and different solutions, but it is the only way. By the way, it is possible. There is no invasion. “It is not a catastrophe. It is possible to do it, but countries have to work together,” says Filippo Grandi, United Nations Commissioner for Refugees.
Darmanin assured on television that the objective is to quickly expel to their countries people who arrive irregularly and do not have the right to asylum. “We will only welcome them if they respect the asylum rules, if they are persecuted. But if it is simply irregular immigration, France cannot welcome them, nor can other countries,” the minister stressed when asked about the people who have arrived in recent days to Lampedusa.
However, some colleagues in Paris do not share the rigid stance of the French Interior Minister. The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Catherine Colonna, assures that France will participate in the redistribution of migrants between the countries of the Union.
