Migrants must prove they are disease-free: mayors
by Patrick Browne
Six mayors of towns in the Ligurian province of Savona have signed decrees stating that they will only accept migrants who come with a clean bill of health.
Enzo Canepa, the mayor of the seaside town of Alassio, signed the first decree, which effectively bans migrants from entering the town unless they have a health certificate proving they are free from disease.
The controversial move came after the arrival of hundreds migrants in Ventimiglia, a town further up the Ligurian coast from Alassio, and which borders France.
