From asylum seekers to refugees. The status of the 12 migrants Pope Francis brought to the Vatican with the collaboration of the Community of Sant'Egidio at the end of his Apostolic visit to the Greek island of Lesbos.
The official recognition decree has been notified this morning from the Prefecture of Rome to all three Syrian families consisting of six adults and six sons, all minors. From tomorrow they will have a passport and permission to stay for a period of 5 years, with the possibility of working. The three families are currently housed by the Community of Sant'Egidio, while their clothes, medical expenses and food are paid for by the Vatican.
"From the bureaucratic point of view everything is now resolved" - AdnKronos was told by Daniela Pompei, responsible for services to immigrants from the Community of Sant'Egidio - "today they have obtained the decree, after three weeks earlier doing the interview for issuance of the certificate, explaining the reasons for their asylum request." The Community is giving lessons in Italian language and culture to the adult refugees, also organising tours of the capital and tourist spots such as Reggia di Caserta last week. The sons (one of 2 years, two of 6, one who is 7, one who is 15 and one who is 18) are all going to school. "Italy will be their country of action".Source
At the time I asked whether these "refugees" would be permanently housed in the Vatican and speculated that they would end up being imposed as a burden on Italy. That is exactly what has now happened. So this traitor Pope is acting exactly like a people smuggler. He just brings in a few brownskin refugees and leaves the Italian taxpayer to pick up the tab; and this at a time when 2.2 million Italian families have no employment income.
Some 2.2 million families were without an employment income in 2015, Istat, the national statistics agency said on Friday, as it slammed Italy for having “one of the least efficient” social security systems in Europe.
The number of families without a job income rose from 9.4 percent in 2004 to 14.2 percent last year, corresponding to 2.2 million households, Istat said in its report on the "economic situation of the country" for 2016.Source
