"There is work for everyone even if there is a lot of poverty but nobody dies of hunger.The real motivation of emigration is socio-economic".
A supporter of the extremist line on immigration, Coltorti claims those who define the results of the government: "Since we are in government there have been no more deaths in international waters, there have been some in Libyan waters outside the control area of the Navy Italian ".
