The Government of Sánchez and Iglesias is making the measures more flexible to regularize the situation of immigrants who are in Spain and the case of minors is no exception. According to a statement from the Ministry of Labor, Migration and Social Security, the Secretary of State for Migration has issued an instruction materializing the conditions of extension of the stay of minors who each year move to Spain for the purpose of schooling at protection of the Immigration Regulations that foresees the possible appearance of “exceptional reasons” that could prevent the minor from returning to his country.
However, VOX defends the implementation of the agreement between Spain and Morocco on cooperation in the prevention of illegal emigration of unaccompanied minors, by which these minors must be repatriated to return to their family environment. For this reason, the national deputy of VOX for Ceuta, Teresa López, has asked the Government of the PSOE and United We Can "what is the reason that prevents the agreement with Morocco from being implemented."
In addition, the new instruction referred to by López is part of a series of administrative flexibility measures that the Secretary of State for Migration has implemented to ease the criteria for the renewal of residence and / or work authorizations and has issued instructions aimed at simplifying the criteria for granting requests for temporary residence authorization for reasons of social roots. This coupled with the flexibility of the interpretation of the requirement of sufficient means in the processing of residence permits for family reunification.
Faced with this laxity, the Ceuta parliamentarian demands to know if there have been meetings with Morocco to establish the way to initiate the return of MENA, as established in the 2007 agreement, since according to the Government itself it has recognized previous questions from López, it has not yet been produced no repatriation. López also asks what is the reason for the Executive to "make the stay in Spain of unaccompanied foreign minors more flexible instead of applying the agreement."
Regarding this same agreement, López has registered several questions to find out if, as established, the MENA Registry is in operation and what data it discloses regarding these minors in Spain. In addition, the national deputy of VOX asks to know how many initiations of procedures have been agreed by the Government Delegations and Sub-delegations, competent in this area, in accordance with the Immigration Regulations.
