The EU rejects temporary permissions "not open to the Schengen

European Commissioner for Home Affairs Cecilia Malmstrom Cold shower for the Italian government on emergency immigrants. After the doubts and distinctions of Paris and Berlin on the decree of temporary protection for migrants, which was approved in the council of ministers last Thursday, now comes the ax in Brussels.

European Commissioner for Home Affairs Cecilia Malmstrom said that the Italian decree does not trigger the free movement of migrants within the Schengen area. This position hard against Italy is contained in a letter that the commissioner sent the Italian Interior Minister Roberto Maroni already last Friday, the day after the approval of the Order in Rome.

The document, revealed by the Ansa preview, it is noted that at community level, "when conditions do not exist to enable 55 of the 2001 Directive on temporary protection." According to Brussels, the problem is that, as has been repeatedly stressed by the Italian authorities, migrants entered landed on Lampedusa in recent months in the vast majority of "economic migrants" and not people escaping war and persecution.

So these are people who can not enjoy any kind of humanitarian protection or international law, as required by European Directive of 2001. How to write Malmstrom, "The Temporary Protection Directive aims instead to protect the displaced persons from third countries who can not return to their country of origin."
