Italy’s right-wing leadership has long maintained an “Italy First” attitude similar to the America First movement at home

Since 2015’s European Refugee Crisis, the nations of the European Union have been subject to constant migrants and illegal/irregular immigration. Although for many of these countries the immigration waves dropped off severely in 2019 and 2020, this is not the case for all. Italy, more than any other nation in Western Europe, has been impacted consistently by irregular and illegal immigration.

A boat full of migrants en route to Italy

In June of 2018, Italy became one of the first EU nations to actively begin deportations of illegal immigrants under the leadership of their self-described populist government.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior Matteo Salvini, known and sometimes criticized as a “right-wing firebrand” told 500,000 illegal immigrants and “refugees” to pack their bags and leave, placing “Italians first” in Italy.

During 2021, the populist government of Italy imploded and a technocratic globalist, Mario Draghi became (an unelected) Prime Minister. However, 2018’s Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, now leader of the popular 5-Star Movement, and former Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini, leader of the right-wing Lega Nord party, have still remained powerful forces in Italian politics. So much so, in fact, that the current Italian Prime Minister just tried to resign due to loss of their support.

Citing both the ongoing European energy crisis, as well as poor response to illegal immigration, the 5-Star Movement initiated a vote of no confidence against Draghi, which he barely survived. However, following his narrow survival, Draghi attempted to file resignation, which was blocked by Italy’s President.

If Draghi had resigned successfully, the Italian general election scheduled for early 2023 would have to be called early to determine a new Prime Minister. When this happens, expect Italy-first firebrands such as Matteo Salvini and Giuseppe Conte to once again take the center stage in Italian politics.

Meanwhile, the United States has their own (unelected) globalist “leader” who actively tries to import as many illegal immigrants as possible. Think Italy would be willing to trade?
