Vox leader calls for recognition of sovereign borders

The man who resuscitated the Spanish rightwing, is forty-three years old, with piercing gaze and well trimmed beard, and he always carries a Smith & Wesson on him. Since he created Vox in 2014, Santiago Abascal has made it the third political force in the country.

    French President Emmanuel Macron has defended, in particular migration as well as the need for the European Union. Abascal on the other hand has been claiming national sovereignty and the control of borders, especially in Gibraltar and in the Spanish enclaves in Morocco.

    He believes the national level is the right one to deal with the immigration problem. “The first step in resolving the migration issue is to respect national sovereignty and, therefore, borders. For decades, the European Union has imposed migration policies that are out of touch with the reality and the needs of member countries.”

    Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez formed his current coalition government relying on Catalan and Basque separatist parties. Abacal has had bodyguards since he was 18 because his parents were targeted by Basque separatists who burned their store.

    “Every nation has the authority to decide who enters its territory,” Abascal told French weekly Valeurs Actuelles.

    “Globalist currents have promoted a multicultural society which has failed and impoverished the lives of citizens in all areas: social, cultural and economic. Today, European women cannot walk freely in capital districts like Paris, London, Brussels, etc.

    “In Spain we have not yet arrived at such a dramatic situation, but it is only a matter of time if we do not adopt the appropriate measures. At Vox, we therefore defend legal, orderly and assimilable immigration. Exactly the opposite of what globalist elites have been doing for decades.”

    Abascal has called Macron a “world president” in the past while defending Spanish identity. He says globalism pursues the dissolution of nation states in order to strengthen the foundations of a new world order in which decisions are taken despite national interests, that is to say in an undemocratic manner which ignores sovereignty.

    “It is up to the Spanish to choose the future of Spain, as it is up to the French to decide the future of France. We will always oppose totalitarian projects that force people to think in a certain way, that force them to destroy their roots and their culture. The Spanish did not choose us to look after the interests of neighboring countries, but to provide solutions to our own problems.”

    In France, there were more than 1 000 anti-Christian acts during 2018, degradations or desecrations of churches. Abascal said the defense of Christian civilization was now a priority for Western Europe.

    “Europe cannot be understood without its Christian roots. The beginning of the decline of the European Union in 2002 coincides with the exclusion and marginalization of Christianity in the failed European Constitution, which was then introduced in the Treaty of Lisbon.

    “As John Paul II said, ‘Christianity […] has contributed to the formation of a common consciousness of European peoples and has made an important contribution to the development of their civilization’. Today, the Christian religion is the most persecuted in the world, that in the silence of the oligarchies.”

    Spain has the euro zone’s fourth-largest economy, with a per capita income almost similar to Italy’s. Spain’s population of 40 million in 1999 became 47 million by 2010, as a result of immigration: Non-Spaniards increased eightfold, from 750 000 to 5,75 million — from 2 percent to more than 12 percent of the population.

    However, the percentage of Spaniards wanting fewer immigrants is Europe’s lowest while the percentage wanting more immigrants is Europe’s highest.

    The south east region of Murcia in Spain has emerged this week as the front line in the battle between two competing visions of Spain on the issue of the “parental pin”.

    In Murcia, where Vox won the highest vote share, and their supporters believe parents should have a say in education policy, the issue has been simmering for a while. Introduced in September, the policy allows parents to veto left-orientated educational workshops.

    It allows parents to prevent their children from partaking in complementary school workshops that incorporate “ideological or moral leaning against their convictions” even if it is part of the basic curriculum within normal school hours particularly what Vox deem to be “sexual morals”.

    Vox says the policy was a necessary response to “the obvious indoctrination in gender ideology that our children suffer in educational centers”.

    Vox, which is now the third-largest force inside the Spanish parliament with 52 lawmakers, was allegedly created in 2013 with around €1 million donated by the NCRI by means of transfers from from foreign sympathizers of the Iranian exiles.

    Meanwhile, another lawmaker from Vox, Iván Espinosa de los Monteros, together with Santiago Abascal have been accused of receiving party salaries for eight months that drew on funds from donations by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), sources have told Spanish daily El Pais.
