Italy continues to refuse to take back refugees

Italy continues to refuse to take back refugees for whose asylum applications the country is actually responsible under the Dublin agreement.

Italy has closed its borders. Because new migrants are constantly arriving from the Mediterranean, the new government Giorgia Meloni (45) has not been taking back Dublin refugees since shortly before Christmas. Switzerland is currently unable to repatriate 184 people, although Italy would be responsible as the country of entry according to the Dublin Agreement. The migration situation is also tense in this country.

The Dublin states concerned were actually informed that the admission freeze would end after the holidays. But the hope was disappointed. The State Secretariat for Migration (SEM) expected Italy to take back Dublin refugees by January 6 at the latest, spokesman Samuel Wyss told Blick. “This expectation is shared by other affected Dublin states.”
