Madrid, Oct 24 (EFE).- The People’s Party has accused the government of having “unethical” and “not very responsible” behavior with immigration and has condemned the lack of information about the executive’s plans, also towards the autonomous communities.
In a press conference after the steering group, the Deputy Secretary for Culture and Open Society, Borja Sémper, in light of the humanitarian emergency on the coasts of the Canary Islands, emphasized that “we are talking about people, not bundles or packages, people” those who must “preserve their dignity and humane treatment”.
Sémper made this statement when he was asked about the criticism of Madrid’s president, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, who condemned the executive’s failure to report the possible arrival of immigrants in the autonomous communities and accused the government of treating these people “as burdens” for those leaving the peninsula.
This phenomenon “cannot be taken over by the autonomous communities without the help of the Spanish government and the European institutions” because “a high percentage seek to continue on their way to other European countries,” Sémper added.
The PP has also highlighted the complaints of the Canary Islands authorities about the government’s actions regarding the arrival of cayucos, the way in which more than 5,000 people have arrived on the island of El Hierro so far this year.
“We don’t know what the government will do. We don’t have information, but the autonomous communities don’t have it (…) unethical behavior on the part of the government with regard to immigration and not very responsible, and this must be changed”, Sémper has condemned .
On the other hand, he has avoided speaking out in favor of Javier Milei, who will seek to preside over Argentina in the second round after finishing second to the Peronist Sergio Massa, as Ayuso did yesterday when he spoke for “political change ” in this country.
Sémper, who also believes that Argentina, where there is 140% inflation, needs a change, has indicated that he is not close to Peronism, but to “other candidates either.” EFE
