SPAIN is starting to count the cost of its new found status as the destination of choice for seaborne migration from Africa.

The national government has announced it is to spend €30 million on an emergency plan to deal with the increasing number of migrants arriving on Spanish shores.

So far this year the country has received nearly 24,000 immigrants as other nations including Italy have slammed the doors shut to boatloads of migrants.

The money pledged will be spent on staffing costs of managing arrivals on the beaches as well as to pay for basics like blankets and food.

Meanwhile, Spain’s Foreign Minister Josep Borrell has hit back at claims that Spain was being overwhelmed with “mass” immigration. Speaking after a meeting with his Jordanian counterpart Ayman Safadi, he said: “We’re trivialising the word mass”.

Recent incidents include a charge across the border of the Spanish enclave of Ceuta by 600 migrants.

Borrell said that this leads to an incorrect perception of the situation. “This shocks public opinion and the disorderly nature of immigration produces fear.”

But he added: “Six hundred people is not massive compared to 1.3 million” Syrian refugees currently in Jordan.

“We’re talking about 20,000 (migrants) so far this year for a country of more than 40 million inhabitants. That’s not mass migration”.

Politicians can be so naive. Reminds me of the triumphant lefties on the first day that Romanians were allowed unfettered access to the UK and the media descended on one Romanian guy who got off the first plane with everyone gleefully pointing out how this proved fears of a mass influx were just scaremongering. A few years later ie now over 400,000 had arrived. Those liberals are strangely quiet on the subject now and of course the UK media says nothing for fear of being accused of racism.

Allowing immigrants from Africa is opening a tap, once word gets out that Spain is a haven it will be overrun like Italy was. That complacent official who thinks it is not a problem will have his smirk turned upside down. Every country that has welcomed immigrants en mass has regretted it. You would think that might send a small pulse of thought to the Spanish authorities......

Spain should have learned from the last invasion - it took 400 years to be rid of the savages! As usual we were never asked! This is all part of the George Soros' plan for the destruction and islamification of Europe which he happily states on video.

Looking at the number of immigrants vs the total population is meaningless because the immigrants all congregate in a few areas. Check out those places with the highest number of African immigrants and the jail statistics if you want to see what...

As soon as the news gets out millions of Africa's benefit bandits will pivot towards Spain. Have you seen the future? Check out Lampedesa. The new Madrid junta is globalist to its core. Anyone with investments in Costa Spain will see them...

As soon as the news gets out millions of Africa's benefit bandits will pivot towards Spain. Have you seen the future? Check out Lampedesa. The new Madrid junta is globalist to its core. Anyone with investments in Costa Spain will see them plummet. But, this is because they are too laid back to care so deserving of their fate.
