The Minister of Social Welfare of the Government of Aragon, Carmen Marin Susincriticized this Thursday the “disloyalty” and “irresponsibility” of the Ministry of the Interior for sending Huesca to 200 immigrants from the Canary Islands without prior notice and without coordination for their assistance.
The immigrants have been urgently housed, 50 in the Montearagón Hotel in Quicena and another 145 in the Pirenarium shelter in Sabiñánigo, through the Apip Acam Foundation.
The counselor has described it as “institutional disloyalty” and “irresponsibility” that the Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, has made the decision without previously notifying the Government of Aragon. In statements to the media, she indicated that “we do not know how long they will stay, nor their subsequent journey, nor what the Government of Aragon should do to serve them appropriately.”
The counselor regretted that they treat immigrants “as if they were packages, distributing them throughout Spain, without notifying the regional governments even though we have the means to adequately care for them.”
According to publication Heraldo.esthe group sent to Huesca will be joined by another group made up of 85 sub-Saharans who will arrive next weekend in Zaragozaand another 50 more Tarazona.
