"Aquarius refugees" dumped their donated goods within hours of arriving, and paid for drinks with 100-Euro-notes to celebrate their arrival in the EU.

The clothes – often brand-new donated textiles – collected for the “poor African refugees” were disposed of right away, dumped in the trash containers.
In recent days, several Spanish Facebook users complained that migrants from the Aquarius simply disposed of the clothes and blankets donated to them by the Red Cross.
They posted photos of a dumpster in front of the Cheste Educational complex, which houses many of the immigrants while their asylum applications are being processed, a Spanish news outlet, Caso Aislado reported.
Inside and around the containers, new clothes and unopened red cross parcels with their contents marked as “a tracksuit, a t-shirt, underwear and a few socks” were dumped.
It is quite possible that the donors had not been “culturally sensitive” enough. Perhaps one should have renounced the red crosses on the sacks, in order not to offend the “traumatized” Muslims fleeing poverty in their own countries.
The donations were clearly not gratefully accepted as Christian “care packages”.
All of the migrants were given a free circulation permit of up to 45 days to be able to “regularize their situation”. The great majority have taken advantage of the permit to leave Valencia, contact acquaintances and even the mafias that will take them to their final destinations.
In addition, some migrants were seen during their first night in Spain at a restaurant in Cheste, where they paid their drinks with 100-euro notes.
But the most surprising thing is that many of them went out asking for shots of whiskey and smoking “excessively”, as well, explained a waitress from a restaurant near Cheste. “It caught my attention that they paid me with 100 euro bills. There was one who had a bundle of 50 euro bills in a bag, but they were wet. I do not know where they had changed [their money] to euros, they must have bought them before they took the boat.”
The waitress acknowledged that they had a good party: “They emptied the tobacco machine and asked for many shots [of strong alcohol]. They were very happy.”
The Spanish trauma management had obviously been working faster than expected. On Facebook young migrants, previously reported by the press as having been “shocked” and “traumatized” by “fleeing” in terror from Libya, had celebrated their first night in a most carefree way.
The migrants are being housed in dormitories in Alicante, from which students had been kicked out with only 24 hours notice – despite having signed leases for their paid accommodation.
Spanish residents expressed their anger about the lack of gratitude of the “traumatized refugees” over the generosity of the Red Cross.
