Bern wants the (noctural) border closure in ticino

Yesterday after reading the article about Sweden not wanting to "take" any more immigrants, I read the article in the french version of 20min concerning the swiss goverment wanting to (nocturnal) close the sixteen secondary border crossings in Ticino.

Here is the link-translation:

Re: Bern wants the (noctural) border closure in ticino

Though this is exaggerated, the Bundesrat indeed sees closing Tessin borders as a possibility according to admin.ch news (no english version) from Nov 5 (search for Tessin).

There will be talks with Italy first though, so it probably should be expected to take considerable time before a decision is taken.
