Video transcript:

00:05   President, I will speak of, remaining on today’s topic, what the leftist colleague has just said.
00:10   Specifically, on two quick points. There’s a limit
00:13   to the idiocies one can say in this chamber, pardon me.
00:16   You cannot say that legal migration to Italy is being hindered because of the Bossi-Fini law.
00:22   Legal migration to Italy has become hardly possible lately,
00:26   because the Bossi-Fini quotas have been reduced to zero.
00:29   Because all quotas were taken up by those who were smuggled into Italy’s territory.
00:33   Because we are the only country that says “You can’t migrate to Italy unless you pay smugglers!”
00:38   And that’s exactly what we’ve been protesting about throughout all these years!
00:42   So, firstly, let’s try to be serious, please.
00:46   Secondly: stop accusing us of institutional racism!
00:50   Institutional racism is what the state has been doing: letting Italians die under bridges,
00:55   and supporting any foreign migrant on a €37.5 budget!
01:00   That’s institutional racism! Institutional racism is giving a social pensioner
01:03   €480 a month, where the state spends 1,200 on a single migrant!

  1. I am sure the same criticism could be made of any other Western European nation. Who was it who said, “I don’t believe in coincidence”?
