Wedding ban on illegal immigrants in northern town

Illegal immigrants will be banned from getting married in the northern Italian town of Caravaggio, unless they have the legal permits to stay and work in Italy. The town’s mayor, Giuseppe Prevedini said I will no longer be available to marry illegal immigrants… In most cases these are marriages of convenience, often in exchange for money, to enable foreigners to obtain a permit of stay, bring family members to join them, and in two years to obtain citizenship.”
