From: Inside Story

Far-right politicians capitalise on rise in variety of undocumented immigrants.

Undocumented refugees are as soon as once more on the centre of a political tussle in Italy.

The inside ministry says greater than 39,000 asylum seekers have arrived by boat this 12 months.

That’s 10,000 greater than the identical interval in 2021.

Most refugees attempting to achieve Europe land on Lampedusa, the closest cease on the Mediterranean route from North Africa.

The island’s reception centre can’t deal with the variety of new arrivals.

Far-right politicians have seized on the scenario within the run-up to the snap polls in September.

May this challenge affect the vote’s consequence?
