Italian Towns Push Back on Growing Burden of Europe’s Migrant Crisis

From The Wall Street Journal:

The Italian government is locked in a battle with local towns and regions that are resisting—and even ignoring—demands from Rome to resettle the surging number of migrants in their areas.

This month, at least 20 mayors threatened to resign or occupied buildings together with residents to block the arrival of migrants sent by the government. Local associations have organized street protests.

For Italy as a whole, foreigners represent 8.1%, triple the percentage in 2003.
