Alfano blames immigrants for black market trade in Italy (ANSA) - Rome, November 11 - Italian Deputy Prime Minister Angelino Alfano on Monday blamed immigrants for black market trade practices in Italy and undermining the future of young people.

''We are a welcoming people, but we can not accommodate everyone. We can not assure a future to our enterprises, to our young people or even to those immigrants who are thinking to come to Italy violating our laws,'' Alfano told merchants gathered at an anti-black market event organized by the Italian business trade association Confcommercio.

''They can come, but they have to submit to our laws like all of our Italian merchants,'' said the senior member of Silvio Berlusconi's centre-right People of Freedom (PdL) party and governing partner with Premier Enrico Letta of the centre-left Democratic Party (PD).
