Sanatoria (amnesty for illegal immigrants) is most likely on the way. The Senate’s Constitutional Affairs and Justice Commissions have given green light to a measure that will allow irregular immigrants in Italy to be regularized.
All the main political parties - Democratic Party, People of Liberty Party and the parties forming part of the Third Pole have agreed to let the government regularize illegal immigrant workers. They have in fact asked the government to implement the measure.
The Senators have gone as far as indicating the procedures to be followed in regularizing immigrant workers. For each irregular worker, the employer will have to pay 1,000 Euros. This would allow the worker to obtain the work permit and the employer to be exempted from sanctions prescribed by the law for hiring illegal workers.
