By regularising 150,000 illegal immigrant workers in Italy, a total of 500,000 illegal immigrants will be regularized, Isabella Bertolini, MP of the People of Liberty has claimed.
She said that each of the 150,000 regularised illegal immigrant workers will apply for family reunification and this will lead to half a million people eventually being regularised.
Normally each regularised person, according to Ms. Bertolini, brings into the country at least three family members.
She advised the government to be careful when it comes to making decisions such as the regularisation of illegal immigrants.
Ms. Bertolini doubted whether the public services would be able to cope with such a high number of immigrants.
