MANILA, Philippines—Undocumented Filipino workers in Italy now have the opportunity to legalize their stay in the said country and shed their fear of deportation, according to the Department of Labor and Employment.

Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz said the Italian government has passed a legislation called Sanatoria 2012, which allows Italian and European employers of undocumented immigrant workers to acquire a work permit for their employees and regularize their work conditions.

“Application for regularization of their undocumented employees may also be done by a non-European employer who is holding a long-term permit to stay,” Baldoz said, quoting a report by Labor Attaché to Milan Annabella Oliveros.

      You are correct to air this statement. “What’s the ‘woman begging picture’ got to do with the article?” Picture depicts more of an “Old Illegal” Filipina on her daily rounds in a Roman city or is it somewhere in Manila?. Philippine Inquirer should a have good taste in this context.

    Dios Ko Santisima, ang Philippine Inquirer naman ay tarantado sa mga pictures pinagpost nila dito. Walang ka professionalism. What does the pic got to do with illegal pInos ? Dapat ipakita nyo yata naging street hookers ang ating mga dalagita s? Many illegals from NOrth Africa, from former republics of Yugoslavia and even Greeks , are in dodo shzt begging in streets of Italy. Besides Italy is a shzthole pretty soon.
