Italy: Thousands of undocumented migrants to get Italian work permits

"Threatened by food shortages and health risks, Rome gives a six-month amnesty for thousands of undocumented migrants.


Bilongo said the regularisation could also help improve conditions for up to 180,000 people living in shantytowns at a time when the public health emergency is "far from over". Activists have long warned that the informal settlements housing irregular workers lacked access to running water and sanitation and risked becoming coronavirus hotspots.

Yet, human rights groups decried the temporary nature of the amnesty."
