Virginia Raggi told an immigration summit of European city leaders mayors need to be the first to welcome refugees with “warmth, shelter and accommodation”.
She was speaking just days after a Moroccan family was prevented from moving into a council flat given to them by the authorities after neighbours shouted: “We do not want these n*****s.”
Italy has seen the largest increase in migrant arrivals to Europe this year after the European Union (EU) made a deal with Turkey which meant migrants headed to Italy instead of Greece.
Thanks to political correctness, reading the news is now like a game of Wheel of Fortune.
Girls are being taken to female genital mutilation (FGM) "parties" in cities across England, a charity has warned.

6. In a break from US policy, the US is arming Iran-backed militias in Iraq
Kalah Sur (Iraq): In a significant break with past policy, US-led forces in Iraq have started arming and training hundreds of fighters belonging to Shiite militias historically known for having ties to Iran. The sectarian militias are being trained for the operation to retake the Iraqi city of Mosul. While Mosul’s future remains uncertain, the cooperative effort is expected to strengthen the Shiite forces both militarily and politically. The US-led coalition has provided hundreds of guns and training to the fighters in recent weeks, indicating a new level of cooperation, although US military officials quickly moved to downplay it, saying the fighters currently being trained have no ties to the Iranian-backed groups that targeted Americans in the past.
Policy toward Saudi Arabia may have to change after an intelligence report found that the Saudi government directly supports fundamentalist Islamic groups in Germany. One focus could be arms sales to Riyadh.
Berlin's relations with some of its main partners in the Middle East were under critical scrutiny on Tuesday after a leaked intelligence report linked the governments of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar with Salafist movements in Germany.
It has long been suspected that states in the Middle East support the missionary efforts of Islamic fundamentalists. This report, carried out by Germany's domestic and foreign spy agencies on behalf of the German government, is noteworthy in that it names three Salafist organizations it says are "closely connected with government offices in their home countries." The report added that "global proselytizing" remains part of Saudia Arabia's "reason of state" and an integral part of Saudi foreign policy. The report predicts that Salafist organizations will "continue to expand their activities in Europe and Germany."
