The emergency of the government. 310 million ready for citizenship at all

The Giallorossi government closes its eyes on the monitoring of the landings of the last days, omitting to evaluate their extent and comparison with the same period of 2019 at the same time, however, does not forget to field huge resources to be allocated to immigrants. In the last few days, the Interior Ministry has allocated 310 million euros (precisely 309,880,000) to strengthen the program necessary for officials to activate the process of recognition of Italian citizenship. An almost exaggerated figure if we consider the two steps that will concern, one the management of the IT system and the other, the training of staff. And equally counting that the procedure was initiated by the offices without publication of the call but only through private negotiation. Curious mode indeed unless the program is endorsed by constraints of supreme urgency, – but in the documents there is no provision of speed rather, given the huge sum, as stated in the procurement code, the public announcement had to be dutiful. At the same time, on the other hand, there is also a 2,500 euro bonus for Rup and executive director.

Yes, but as happened on other occasions, the majority of Democratic Party Cinquestelle simplifies and sburocratizes every other day according to the motto “Cicero pro domo sua”. In short, only when it pays. In this specific case, it seems that the Ministry of the Interior is rushing to develop the best purpose to hasten the assignment of citizenship. However, if you go to measure the realistic relationship between application and recognition, it turns out that in recent years as many as 35% of applications have been rejected due to incomplete requirements and insufficient documentation. That is to say, officials engaged in evaluating requests have rejected them more than a third of the time. Who knows if today this new system of calculation and analysis, given the huge cost, can operate a skimming of the questions already upstream. We will see. However that may be, it is evident to ask a sort of rhetorical question: how come precisely at this very problematic moment for Italy, in which the Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte is anxious to want to extend the state of emergency until December 31 next, among the priority of the Interior Ministry is the go-ahead for a project for the assignment of citizenship to immigrants? To date, unless unexpected surprises, the proposed laws on Ius soli and Ius sanguinis seem tight in the drawers of the majority, including that relating to the bill carried out by the president of the Constitutional Affairs Commission, the pentastellato Giuseppe Brescia fervent supporter of the fact that immigrant children attending school are already Italian citizens a priori. In any case, despite the state of emergency, the administrative machine that deals with the reception of migrants is starting up again. In addition to this large sum of money, another has been given, even if it is a small thing in comparison: € 7 million to entrust cultural mediators with projects against the social, mental and vulnerability of migrants and to impart rules for health care . This figure also includes the last 110 million for the extension of a portion of the Siproimi projects. And not least an additional 102 million for non-profit organizations that deal with integration on the national territory.
