Send migrants packing, says Grillo

M5S leader calls for obligatory medicals for all new arrivals

(see related) (ANSA) - Rome, October 21 - Beppe Grillo, the leader of the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S), has caused a stir by calling for undocumented migrants to be expelled from Italy if they are not found to be refugees.
    "People who enter Italy on migrant boats are perfect strangers," Grillo said on his popular blog, which gave life to the Internet-based M5S in 2009.
    "They should be identified immediately. The refugees should be accepted, the others, the so-called illegal immigrants, should be sent back to where they come from.
    "People who enter Italy should be subject to an obligatory medical upon arrival to protect their health and Italian people's health".
