Italian bishops urge citizenship for children of immigrants
CWN - January 08, 2013
The Italian Catholic bishops’ conference has offered support for a proposal to grant citizenship to children born in Italy to immigrant parents.
Father Giancarlo Perego, a spokesman for the Italian bishops’ committee on migrants, saw the measure as “encouraging the growth of democracy and social cohesion.”
Under existing Italian law, children are eligible for citizenship only if their parents are already citizens.
