Communist Party calls for immigrants to be legalised

Portugal's communist parliamentary group has called for all immigrants without local documents, but who are working or have lived in Portugal permanently since July 2015, to be legalised.

This is according to a draft law due to be debated today in parliament. The communist party MPs said that instead of encouraging the integration of immigrant workers and their families in Portuguese society, the country had privileged 'Golden Visas,' granted to wealthy foreigners in exchange for large funds or the acquisition of luxury real estate. The communist party added that Golden Visas had opened the floodgates to money laundering and corruption.
