Spain will take in around 2.739 refugees in order to ease the humanitarian and migration crisis. In this way Mariano Rajoy has annouced that Spain will accept this amount of people under the condition that European Union promises that will adopt measures to control refugees situation and the chaos that the European Border, specially Greece, Italy and Hungary, are suffering.
However, the European Comission, requested Spain a larger amount, so that the Spanish President guaranteed that “the numbers of refugees could increase, but it won’t take place until Italy and Greece start builiding up refugee’s centres, where it would be possible to distinguish from refugees to people who leave their conutries for economic reasons.
Furthermore, he highlighted that Spain has been working hard on inmigration issues and that now is Greece and Italy’s duty. On the other hand, the German Chancellor claimed that it is necessary that the EU adopt a common asylum policy in order to set these centres up and define a list of secure countries.
