Italy to establish “hotspots” for immigrants

Under strong pressure from the European Union and Germany, the Italian Minister of the Interior Angelino Alfano announced that Italy will establish its “hotspots”, id est centers where Italian and EU officials will be able to quickly separate the asylum seekers from ordinary immigrants.

However, the latter will not be immediately sent back to their home countries, but simply moved elsewhere, probably in the Identification and Deportation Centers.

If it is so, the EU-sponsored hotspots are unlikely to solve the problem since many immigrants refuse to identify themselves and the Italian legislation does not allow the Authorities to intern them but for a very short time.
