From the United Kingdom to Italy, via Sweden and the United States, immigration is one of the central themes of political debate. In London, Interior Minister Suella Braverman (appointed by Truss then by Sunak) promises a tougher migration policy. Same tone in Italy, where, before Parliament, the head of government Giorgia Meloni is considering setting up a European naval mission to stop human traffickers. In Sweden, the subject now occupies ⅓ of the program of the new government, led by the conservative Ulf Kristersson with the support of the extreme right in Parliament. It is also the subject at the heart of the exchanges between Democrats and Republicans in the United States.
