Mamma Mia! Italy Scores a Big Win Against Illegal Immigration

Published

on

EU border agency Frontex disclosed new statistics showing the effectiveness of Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini’s immigration policies.

Salvini has reduced illegal immigration drastically since assuming office on June 1, 2018. According to Il Giornale, Mediterranean migrant route numbers plummeted drastically from 118,962 in 2017 to 23,276 in 2018. This 80 percent decline transpired following the establishment of the populist coalition government of Salvini’s Lega party and the Five Star Movement.

The 2018 illegal immigrant numbers in Italy are the lowest since 2012. However, it seems that these migrant patterns are shifting towards Italy’s Mediterranean counterpart in Spain. Since Spain’s socialist government took control in 2018, the country has witnessed a 157 percent increase in the number of migrants taking sea routes.

Because of this increased migration, Spain may be on the verge of experiencing its own populist moment, as right-wing parties are projected to make a big splash in the 2019 European elections.

Roberto Calderoli, the Vice-President of the Italian Senate and a member of Salvini’s Lega, praised Salvini’s efforts.

Calderoli chimed in on Frontex’s latest report:

“This confirms that the Italian policy, implemented by Minister Salvini and the Government of change, works and produces concrete results, even in terms of lives saved, because Frontex confirms that the departures from Libya fell by 87 percent.”

Frontex’s numbers don’t lie, which Calderoli acknowledged:

“These are irrefutable numbers, which contradict what the left has done in the last five years, when it was, unfortunately, in government, and had brought in over 600 thousand immigrants.”

Leaders like Salvini and Calderoli knew what was at stake with the EU’s continuance of open borders and how it was negatively impacting Italy:

“We saw that the invasion could be stopped and Salvini did it.”

Frontex’s numbers are line with the Italian Interior Ministry’s reports indicating that illegal migration levels have fallen by 95 percent as of January 2019 when compared to January 2018.

Salvini’s policies have struck a positive chord with Italian voters, with projections of Lega winning the most seats in Italy in the upcoming European Parliament elections.

Despite all the doomsday prophecies from the globalist political establishment, Populism continues to be on the rise throughout Europe.

Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016

Coulter tells it like it is.

Published

Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.

Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.

Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is  necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.

As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.

Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.

She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.

also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”

She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.

The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.

Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
