Migrant Welcome Associations Blast Salvini for Cutting off Money

Italian pro-migrant associations which operate asylum reception centres have blasted populist Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini for cutting funding.

The associations are becoming increasingly hostile to the anti-mass migration minister, complaining that kennels for dogs are currently receiving more money than the migrant reception centres, Italian newspaper Il Giornale reports.

 Fabio Scaltritti of the Community San Benedetto al Porto in Alessandria commented on the cuts saying: “In Italy a place in an animal shelter costs on average 20 euros with the addition of the cost of cans and biscuits.”

“The new rules imposed by the Salvini decree reduce the cost of receiving a human being to less than 20 euros a day: it means that we are equated with the keepers of a kennel and we do not want to be,” he added.

“It is not an economic question, but an ethical one,” Scaltritti said and noted: “Even if the figure had remained at 35 euros a day we would not have enough.”
