Italy Slashes Asylum Seeker Benefit Payments

Italy Slashes Asylum Seeker Benefit Payments, by Chris Tomlinson.

Populist Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has ordered that benefits for asylum seekers be substantially reduced, saying the money saved will be given to police working overtime shifts instead. …

Currently, migrants receive between 35 to 45 euros per day from Italian taxpayers but Salvini’s new policy will see that amount reduced to around 20 euros per day.

First Austria, then Italy. Who’s next?
