Protest against the immigration service center

It is one of the 17 centers that the ministry headed by José Luis Escrivá is going to build throughout Spain with European funds and the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan. The mayor of Azuqueca specified that this assignment will be prior to the subsequent sale of the land for 1.7 million euros to the Ministry itself.

The organizers of the rally expressed their disagreement with the creation of this center “not because it is for immigrants/refugees, but because of the obscurantism of this government team, because we believe that a decision of this magnitude must be consulted with the public , due to the important impact that it can have in the town in the future”, according to The Herald of Henares.

In this sense, the spokesman for the PP in Azuqueca de Henares, Mane Corrales, who has condemned the graffiti at the PSOE headquarters, has pointed out that “people are very ‘burned’ by the mayor’s authoritarian decisions.” “People are tired of being insulted by calling us racist, xenophobic and indecent to whom we do not think of as the mayor,” he added in a post on his social networks.

For its part, Vox Guadalajara pointed out in its networks that “Azuqueca does not want a covert center for ores and today it has demonstrated it in front of the City Hall.” Several representatives of the formation have attended the concentration, which considers that this Alcarreña town “already lives every day in an insecure multiculturalism blessed by its mayor” and that “it does not need to welcome new potential dangers for its women and children.”
