Maria Teresa Fernandez de la Vega quotes
We are a first-world country bordering the third world. Just a few miles away there lies the poorest, impoverished continent, forgotten and neglected.
Those who enter illegally must realise that sooner or later they will have to leave, and therefore our policy will continue to focus on effective repatriation. Naturally we will respect human rights in the process, as we already do.
There are no shortcuts to peace, no detours. There's no political price to pay. It's a process we are going to follow, the path is clear, it's the way of the rule of law. Our system plays by the rules of the democratic game, and we must not forget the victims.
It will increase job stability, in the context of precarity, which is a structural problem that we have to fight. We're doing that without introducing rigidities, we're maintaining flexibility in our jobs market.
