Matteo Salvini, Italy’s Populist Interior Minister, is expected to be the face of a newly emerging pro-sovereignty/populist supergroup in Europe.

Omni reports that Member of the European Parliament and member of the Austrian Freedom Party (FPÖ) Harald Vilimnsky said that three major populist groups in the European Parliament would be rolling out an agreement to increase cooperation among them.

The three groups that are slated to be included in this agreement are the Europe of Nations and Freedom (ENF), Europe of Freedom and Democracy (EFDD), and the eurosceptic European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR).

Historically, there has been some cross-over within the ENF — which Salvini, Marine Le Pen, Geert Wilders, and the FPÖ are members of — and the EFDD. However, there have been few formal connections between the two groups.

Vilimsky’s comments caught the eurosceptic ECR by surprise claiming that this announcement was “news to us.”

Peter Lundgren, an MEP for the populist Sweden Democrats (SD),  has expressed reluctance in joining a populist supergroup in the European Parliament. Lundgren commented in March, “It will not be possible to form a large EU-critical group.”

Over the past few months, Salivni has met with other populist leaders throughout Europe in order forge cooperation between European populist groups.

In August 2018,  Salvini got together with Hungarian Minister Viktor Orbán, who declared Salvini “my hero” for his efforts to reduce mass migration, which BLP has reported on in the past.

Then in October, Breitbart reported that Salvini met with French populist Marine Le Pen and vowed to form a “freedom front” for the upcoming EU elections in May.

To top it off, the Italian minister met with members of the incumbent Law and Justice party (PiS) in Poland where he emphasized the importance of forging alliances with nationalist parties saying,  “I would like there to be a common alliance of those who want to save Europe.”

Salvini has recently become a force in European politics as his policies begin to take root in Italy.

Seeing the dangerous effects of no-go zones and what they’ve done to countries like Germany, Salvini has the led the charge in the putting the clamps on mass migration. Additionally, Italy is becoming a leader in gun rights policy by passing its latest legitimate defense law a few days ago.

Now, populist parties like Vox in Spain are even considering gun rights reforms of their own.

As time goes by, Matteo Salvini appears to be the de facto leader of European populism.

On July 3, 2020, a group of Immigration Patriots gathered in Washington, D.C. to celebrate an event— Salute to America and Prayer Vigil — at the Freedom Plaza.

The event was dedicated to president Donald Trump, who won on an America First immigration platform, and individuals who were murdered by illegal aliens.

Several immigration patriot groups such as the Remembrance Project were in attendance.

BLP reached out to Remembrance Project members for their thoughts on the event.

Diane Atkins, New York coordinator for The Remembrance Project, commented:

We gathered to pray for President Trump and our nation and hold a vigil for Americans killed by illegal aliens. We wanted to show President Trump that we support his America First agenda and stand for law and order. And most importantly as Christians, we must pray and fight against the evil scourge sweeping over our nation that seeks to destroy us all.

Fredy Burgos Jr., The Remembrance Project’s Virginia coordinator, added:

As a naturalized citizen my parents sacrificed family and fortune to move to the United States, legally.   It would be a tragedy and an insult to millions of legal residents and The Remembrance Project’s angel families if our ‘law and order’ president follows bad advice and decides to place illegal aliens above the law and goes along with amnesty. No one is above the law. By the way, there have been seven (7) amnesties since 1986, along with a promise for a border wall; and to this day, no Wall for security!  All we got was more illegal aliens who snub their noses to us.  My family came here legally.  There is a big front door. Use it, or leave!  I’m for a lawful nation not a lawless nation. I”m for America First, not America last.

12 police officers were present to keep order at the event.

Immigration is arguably the hottest issue going into the 2020 elections.

The political implications regarding the voting patterns of immigrants is profound.

Should this issue not be contained, many civil liberties such as the right to bear arms and free speech could be in jeopardy.

President Trump must promote immigration hawks running for Congress and make sure that he gets solid majorities in Congress.

In doing so, he can move his agenda forward without a problem.
