His coalition partners would cause dyspepsia in the immigrant community 
as well:

An Italian gunman with extreme right-wing sympathies shot and wounded 
six African immigrants Saturday in a two-hour drive-by shooting spree, 
authorities said, terrorizing a small Italian city where a Nigerian man 
had been arrested days earlier in a teenager’s gruesome killing.

Police photos showed the shooting suspect with a neo-Nazi tattoo 
prominently on his forehead as he sat in custody and an Italian flag 
tied around his neck as he was arrested in the central Italian city of 
Macerata. Authorities identified him as Luca Traini, a 28-year-old 
Italian with no previous record.

Traini had run for town council on the anti-migrant Northern League’s 
list in a local election last year in Corridonia, the party confirmed, 
but its mayoral candidate lost the race. The news agency ANSA quoted 
friends of his as saying that Traini had previously been affiliated with 
Italian extremist parties like the neo-fascist Forza Nuova and CasaPound.
