Italy migrants: Interior minister’s claims about immigration

Claim: Italy is taking in hundreds of thousands of "non-refugees".

Verdict: Thousands of new migrants have arrived in Italy in recent years, which is the main destination for migrants reaching Europe from Africa. It's difficult to know how many of them are refugees because asylum applications can take years to resolve.

Italy's interior minister and leader of the right-wing League party Matteo Salvini has been talking a lot about illegal immigration.

The new coalition government wants to deport half a million undocumented migrants currently living in Italy.

Mr Salvini said on Twitter on 4 June "the landing and taking in of hundreds of thousands of 'non-refugees' cannot continue to be an exclusively Italian issue".

He said he wants more help from the EU to deal with the flow of people.

Is he right? Reality Check has looked at the numbers.

Italy has received a large number of migrants in recent years.

About 120,000 arrived by sea in 2017 - double the number in Greece and Spain combined.

But the number of arrivals in Italy has not been high only in recent years, but for at least a decade.

When the refugee crisis peaked in 2015, with more than a million arriving in the EU, all eyes were on Greece where more than 800,000 people arrived. In that same year, Italy received 154,000 people.

In the 10 years before that peak, a total of more than 260,000 arrived in Italy, according to United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

In 2016, the EU and Turkey reached a deal which stopped the flow of people, many of them Syrian refugees, into Greece. The number of migrants fell by 97% shortly after the introduction of the deal. But it did not stop the arrivals from Africa into Italy via the Mediterranean.

An agreement struck in 2017 by the EU, Italy and Libya to train Libyan authorities to intercept boats carrying migrants has reduced the number of arrivals. Since then thousands of migrants have been detained in the North African country.

So far in 2018, Italy, Greece and Spain all received a similar number of migrants - between 11,000 and 13,000, according to the UNHCR.

How many are refugees?

Another League party official, Massimiliano Da Federiga, has questioned how many migrants are refugees. He said that the people arriving in Italy are not escaping war, they are "chasing a Western dream. These are empirical facts."

Refugee applications take time to process so it isn't always easy to know how many of the thousands of new arrivals will have their asylum applications approved.

Asylum is granted to people based on different criteria, including those fleeing war and other forms of persecution.

People leaving countries that are not at war may still have a legitimate reason to claim refugee status. Assessment is made on a case-by-case basis upon arrival.

Out of the 80,000 applications made in Italy in 2017, 40% were successful.

Most migrants came from Nigeria, followed by Guinea and Ivory Coast.

The top 10 countries of origin were all African apart from Bangladesh.

Here's the full list:



Ivory Coast









A note on terminology: The BBC uses the term migrant to refer to all people on the move who have yet to complete the legal process of claiming asylum. This group includes people fleeing war-torn countries such as Syria, who are likely to be granted refugee status, as well as people who are seeking jobs and better lives, whom governments are likely to rule are economic migrants.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said «You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.» She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!|

I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Appreciate it!|
