Originally Lega Nord (“Northern League”), now Lega per Salvini (“League for Salvini”), was founded on December 4, 1989 by the merger of several regional autonomist movements from northern Italy, with the main political aim of making Italy a federal state. After a first experience with the national government that lasted a few months in 1994, in the 2000s the Lega joined the center-right coalition which gained political leadership in the elections. At the government, Lega contributed to the approval of a restrictive reform of the law regarding immigration and asylum and, in the years in which it expressed the Minister of the Interior, obtained a drastic reduction in illegal immigration thanks to a careful policy of bilateral agreements with the countries of origin of the immigrants, and with rejections at the border.
