Italian patriots under the leadership of “Brothers of Italy” (Fratelli d’Italia, FdI) party president Giorgia Meloni are taking the communist mayor of Milan to court for racial discrimination against Italians for his plan to subsidize immigrants to the tune of €400 per month—while denying any sort of similar aid to local people.
According to an announcement by Ms Meloni—a member of the Italian parliament since 2006, and a former Minister of Youth in the fourth Berlusconi government—the mayor of Milan, Giuliano Pisapia, has drawn up a plan to pay €400 per month to any household willing to host a nonwhite invader in the city.
This move, she said, is illegal and the FdI is taking Pisapia—a prominent member of the Communist Refoundation Party (Partito della Rifondazione Comunista, PRC)—to court.
“The reason,” Ms Meloni said, “is simple: Article 42 of the Immigration Act of 1998 stipulates equal treatment and civil rights, and prohibits any public authority from discriminating against Italian citizens by giving immigrants priority access to social services.
“In the same way, a public authority cannot take measures that only provide social services for immigrants and exclude Italians. FdI is ready to defend the principle of social justice and to demonstrate each time that Pisapia’s move is an act of discrimination and racism against the Italian people,” she added.

Matteo Salvini, the increasingly popular leader of the anti-invasion Northern League (Lega Nord, LN), said in his reaction that “Pisapia gives €400 per month to those who embrace a ‘refugee’. Bu the Milanese poor get nothing! This is crazy stuff! It is discrimination against needy Italians.”
The communist mayor’s plan was published on the Milan municipality’s website on December 30, 2015. According to that document, “host families must be resident and domiciled in the City of Milan.”
“Priority will be given to those families who have gained previous experience of forms of [refugee] reception and/or foster care,” for the subsidies, which will be paid €350 per single “guest” or €400 for a “family.”
In a press release which accompanied the announcement of the plan, councillor Pierfrancesco Majorino—who represents Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi’s Democratic Party (Partito Democratico, PD, which was formed out of the “Democrats of the Left” party, the official heirs of the original Italian Communist Party)—said that “Milan is innovative with its new forms of hospitality and social inclusion of migrants.”
He boasted that his city had given “aid and assistance to 87,000 people, including 17,000 children” over the last two years as they had “passed through Milan.”
Families who wish to participate in the plan “must be willing to participate in a training program lasting about two days, after which they will be interviewed by a psychologist to compare the motivations of the various family members and verify the suitability of the reception.”
They estimate that the length of stay for each invader will be at least six months. “The accommodation must be located within the municipality and must be suitable for use for residential use. In particular, the host families will make available a bedroom dedicated exclusively for the guests/visitors and ensure the use of sanitation and a minimum of furniture for storing clothes and goods for personal use.”
