Basic income only for Italians - Di Maio

Impossible not to have limit due to 'illegal immigration'

(ANSA) - Rome, September 21 - Deputy Premier and Labour and Industry Minister Luigi Di Maio said Friday that only Italians will be eligible for the government's 'citizenship wage' basic income when it is introduced, while migrants will not. "It is clear that it is impossible not to restrict awarding the citizenship income to Italian citizens, given the flows of illegal immigration," the leader of the 5-Star Movement (M5S) told Radio Anch'io.
