The president of Ceuta, Juan Jesús Vivas (PP) and the president of Melilla, Juan José Imbroda (PP), have rejected the proposal of Vox to build a wall in the two autonomous cities to curb immigration. At a press conference in Moncloa, after the meeting with the president of the Spanish government, Pedro Sánchez, they observed that lifting a wall like Israel is not the solution, but the strengthening of the presence of the police in border areas and above all, maintaining "excellent" relations with Morocco.
The two leaders have transferred to Sanchez the same requests that they made to the former Spanish president Mariano Rajoy. Therefore, Vivas has tried to alleviate the "deficits" it perceives on the border of Ceuta with Morocco with facilities, technological equipment and human resources.
Along the same lines, Vivas also said that the border should not only "combat the pressure of irregular immigration", but also serve as a "lever for economic development" and "communication of the neighboring country". "Yes to security and not to isolation", he was convicted.
On the other hand, although Vox insisted on an electoral campaign to build an "insurmountable wall" on the border of Ceuta and Melilla, the far-right party coordinator in Melilla, Jesus Delgado Aboy, assured that this measure "it is not something directly tangible or palpable" but "it is like a kind of metaphor".
In his statements to journalists, Delgado defined the measure as "a metaphor that is used to say that we will elaborate something on the border that is effective, a border in which no one wants to go from Morocco to health, to have 2,200 pieces in the year, because it goes to the detriment of others ". He also said that his party is clear when it comes to saying that "it can not have an open border for what comes to commit a crime or what is thrown into the street".
