The Italian integration Minister Cecile Kashetu Kyenge, named in this function in April, was compared by the Italian senator Roberto Calderoli, vice president of the Senate, to an orangutan. Calderoli is known as a leader of the anti-immigrant Northern League which has a different believe when compared to Kyenge’s call for children born in Italy. The belief is that immigrants should be able to gain Italian citizenship.
