2018 has been a particularly busy year for Spain’s coastguard with the Salvamento Maritimo reporting record numbers of incoming migrants on a regular basis.

The estimated total of migrants that have arrived to Spain this year stands at  35,653 according to the International Organisation for Migration.

The number of migrants that have entered Europe nations, including Spain, via the Mediterranean Sea this year is estimated to be around 81,207.

  1. Total insanity to keep ferrying these chancers into Spain. Do the Spanish authorities think this stream of invaders will miraculously stop one day. If not, when will it be too many – 1 million or more?

  2. Agreed Annie. More they rescue more the rescued ones will get onto their mobile phones and encourage their mates still in Africa to ” come on over, it’s great here, everything’s for free.” Just why that mafia ferry Open-arms has to pick up gimmigrants just a few metres off the Libyan coast then schlep 3 days to Spain when Tunisia and Algeria are a lot closer and considered safe. Whats the agenda?
