Giorgia Meloni and migration – level 1

09-10-2023 07:00

Giorgia Meloni is the prime minister of Italy. She has far-right ideas.

A year ago, Meloni says that she will stop illegal migration from Africa. It does not happen. But Meloni is now an important person in Europe when talking about migration. Italy is a place where many people come to Europe. And more people are coming every year.

It can happen that leaders in Europe will not agree on what to do about migration. If so, Meloni wants to use this situation to be successful in the European elections. Some people think that she is not as strict as in the past. Even people who do not agree with her ideas like her more. She makes Italy more stable. Meloni is friends with Joe Biden or Volodymyr Zelenskiy, but she is also getting closer to far-right Viktor Orbán in Hungary.

Difficult words: far-right (extreme and not liking big changes), migration (when people come to live and work in another country), elections (when people vote for someone or for a group of people to do a job in politics).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What impact will Meloni's foreign policy have on the European elections?
