The most painful point of this new law concerns the abolition of residence permits issued on humanitarian grounds. This kind of national protection was issued for two years (with the option of renewal) at a point when serious humanitarian reasons prevented the expulsion of asylum seekers, despite the denial of international protection. The fear is that, over time, the application of this law will lead to many asylum seekers failing to obtain a residence permit, and that those who currently have this type of protection, unable to renew it as a result of the new law, will soon be outside the scope of any assistance. Indeed, national estimates show that there are around 140,000 people holding a residence permit on humanitarian grounds, who will find themselves in a situation of illegality on the Italian territory once the permit expires (Villa, 2018). Associated ears point to the increase in scenarios of strong urban and social marginality precisely at a time when flows are decreasing. For this reason, a growing number of mayors suspended the application of the “Salvini law” in anticipation of a judicial pronouncement of the Supreme Court, allowing asylum seekers to register and guarantee other forms of reception for migrants with humanitarian protection in the area.
