Italy's new hardline interior minister Matteo Salvini arrived Sunday in Sicily, one of the country's main refugee landing points, to push the anti-immigration platform that propelled him to power.So far this year Italian authorities have still registered more than 13,500 arrivals.In 2017, the former government announced a budget of some 4.2 billion euros for migrants, of which 18 percent is for rescues at sea, 13 percent for health care, and 65 percent for migrant reception centers, which host some 170,000 people.The accord heavily penalizes Italy, which has seen more than 700,000 migrants arrive since 2013 .
