Cabinet approves migrants-security decree

'Step towards making Italy safer' says Salvini

(ANSA) - Rome, September 24 - Premier Giuseppe Conte's cabinet on Monday approved a decree that brings together previous legislation on the issues of security and migrants.

"I'm happy," Interior Minister and Deputy Premier Matteo Salvini said via Twitter.
    "It is a step forward towards making Italy safer".
    "Asylum seekers' applications will be stopped in the case in which there is social dangerousness or a conviction at a first-instance trial," Salvini added at a press conference, specifying that this mechanism was drafted with the help of "mediation and suggestions".
He said the part of the decree that foresees the revocation of citizenship for people convicted of terrorism felonies was "absolute good sense". He also said that the government was aiming to "close all Roma camps by the end of the current parliamentary term".
