Ahead of an expected breakthrough in the elections to be held on April 28, Vox has promised strict measures to stop migrants. The party entered the political mainstream when it finished in third-place in regional elections in Andalusia in December 2018.
It has vowed to protect the EU’s common border with Africa with an “insurmountable wall” — suggesting that the Moroccan government should pay for it.
Spain has the European Union’s only land border with an African country around the exclaves of Ceuta, Melilla, known in Spanish as plazas de soberanía, or “places of sovereignty”. The enclaves have been prt of Spain since the 1400s.
Police sources in Spain say that at least 50 000 sub-Saharan Africans are waiting in Morocco to enter into the counrty.
Spain’s Socialist Foreign Minister Josep Borrell stated that Europe needed “new blood, and it doesn’t look like this new blood is coming from our capacity to procreate”.
According to Vox party leader Santiago Abascal, the “cowardly right-wing” embodied in the establishment centre-right People’s Party (PP) has “abandoned” the voters who want to end illegal immigration.
