Italy: Campaign against renting to immigrants

An Italian mayor has launched a campaign to encourage citizens not to rent flats or sell houses to immigrants.

Cristiano Borghi who is mayor of Gerenzano in northern Italy sent an official letter on council headed paper to all people in this town urging them to keep out immigrants.

He wrote: "We want to avoid an invasion of immigrants into our town. If you love Gerenzano then you will stand by me on this. If you do not follow this advice then we risk an invasion of immigrants and it will not be safe to go out at night."


Borghi added: "I and my staff have always taken steps to keep out immigrants. That is the reason why we never built council houses with your money -- because otherwise they will be taken over by immigrants."
