Immigrants face more intolerance, says new report

Italian society has begun to show increased intolerance against immigrants, according to a new report by independent research group, Censis, released on Friday. Though the report said that the majority of crimes were committed by illegal immigrants or immigrants without the proper residency status, the report also stressed that many immigrants lived honestly. It called for more integration programs and policies to combat intolerance, racism against foreigners. The report also suggested that Italian politicians suffered from progressive fragmentation – meaning that they have not been able to reach people from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
