Protests against citizenship for migrant children in Italy

Text size Aa Aa

Around 1,000 people have protested in Rome against giving citizenship to the children of migrants. It’s in response to the so-called ‘ius soli’ bill, which would grant citizenship to children born on Italian soil who have completed five years in the school system.

This came as 119 more people were found left adrift by smugglers on a 20 metre sailing boat near Sicily. This is certainly not an isolated incident, but the influx this year is said to be well below 2016 levels.
