Can we stand one more link on the topic? This one is interesting as it delves into a bit of the sociology behind the decline in birthrate.

High Springs Gator is right.
Regardless, Italians just like any other national group has the right to have immigration laws (object to illegal immigration) and limit the number of legal immigrants they want to migrate to their country. It is nobody's business but theirs.

Illegal immigration in Italy

Quote:
Between 1986 and 1998, the Italian government held 4 amnesties, granting citizenship to about 700,000 people. But this did not solve the problem, it actually ended up attracting more migrants.


Quote:
Italy’s geography makes it a perfect spot for illegal immigration, and unfortunately many Africans have died somewhere along the route across the Mediterranean Sea to get from places like Tunisia and Libya to southern Italy


Sound familar
