Italy: Clandestines in prisons without dignity

Explaining why 35,6% out of the prison population is constituted of immigrants, according to  “Without Dignity” : The Observatory report [it] of the Antigone association, the website cronachediordinariorazzismo.org writes [it]:

The presence of foreigners in Italian prisons is mostly due to recent charges in immigration laws, that effected greater flows within the prison system; so much that one of the proposals for improving the inmates conditions in particular related to overcrowding as indicated by the monitoring report requires a need for ‘drastic intervention on three of the laws that produce -  without any benefits for collective security -  the largest influx in prison: the ex-Cirielli law, the Fini-Giovanardi law and the Bossi-Fini law.
