Deputy of Vox party Rocío de Meer, accused Spain’s socialist-led government of “lying” to and “extorting” Spanish citizens while not protecting the country’s borders. “Spain is not protecting its sovereignty. It is not protecting Spaniards, and it is not protecting the doors and walls of it’s house,” stated the deputy leader.
Spain’s Permanent Deputation of Congress had a heated debate over Vox’s criticism of the Pedro Sánchez Government’s open borders immigration policy, after the onslaught of illegal boat arrivals and massive attacks to the Melilla border fence have increased in recent weeks.
Just two days prior, Deputy de Meer who is the Vox party spokesperson on immigration matters, posted a video on her Twitter account highlighting the illegal invasion taking place. The video which was recorded in Almería showed a group of illegal migrants who were previously intercepted and detained, being released from the reception center. Instead of facing deportation, the migrants are seen strutting their new status while shouting “Freedom.”

Varias decenas de ilegales argelinos han sido soltados en manada y sin ningún control a las calles de Almería al grito de “¡Libertad!”
Los políticos promueven la invasión abandonando a los españoles a su suerte. Lo pagarán. pic.twitter.com/ojqiu822HO
“How long will they continue to deceive the Spanish?, asked Rocío de Meer at the start of her speech. For De Meer, the Government is “allowing” this entry and is not “protecting the Spanish.” She slammed the government for allowing a “first world” country to be “extorted” by “third world” countries and expressed shock that they “cannot do anything to prevent it.”
The Vox Deputy accused Spain’s “progressive government” led by President Sánchez’s Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE) and the left-wing People’s party (PP) of aiding NGO human trafficking vessels at sea. “NGOs like Open Arms are to blame for all the deaths” in the Mediterranean and are “promoting a migratory invasion” under the directives of the governments progressives in Europe. Meanwhile, they are “blaming the Spaniards who believe in the legitimate defense of their sovereignty and their borders.”
Do you want to blame the Spaniard whose hand was cut off by an Algerian a few days ago in Barcelona? Do you want to blame the 12-year-old girl from Azuqueca de Henares who was raped by a gang of five Moroccans and a Nigerian? Do you want to blame the forces and agencies of state security or the National Police attacked last Saturday by an Algerian in the CETI detention center in Almeria?
Deputy Rocío de Meer closed her speech with a criticism of multiculturalism:
Multiculturalism works very well among Arab sheikhs, bankers in the Upper East Side and presidents of administration councils. Multiculturalism works very badly in El Puche in Almeria. It works very badly in Niger, it functions very badly in Raval in Barcelona, and it functions very badly in Lavapies.
In the opinion of the Vox deputy, “Massive regulation and the conceding of nationality, Honorable Members of Podemos [left-wing political party], is not patriotism. It’s ketchup.”
The reference to “ketchup” by Rocío de Meer comes after during the she was violently attacked last month by Antifa and a radical pro-separatist group in Sestao. The deputy was hit with an object in the head causing a significant hemorrhage while at an event with Vox Party leader, Santiago Abascal. The deputy and leader were surrounded, harassed and threatened by the violent mob. Abascal posted a picture of de Meer’s injury on his Twitter social media account. However, several deputies from left-wing Podemos accused De Meer that the blood seen in the photographs was actually ketchup.

Habéis desatado la violencia, habéis importado los escraches…y ahora queréis desacreditar a las víctimas de vuestro odio.

Thank you very much, Madame President. How long do you think you can continue fooling the Spaniards? Because for another summer, the migratory invasion has played a leading role in the summer. And the Spanish people know it, and what surprises me about all this is that forces like the Partido Popular [Popular Party], which has governed in this country, and we cannot forget, has also been responsible for the leading role that NGOs like Open Arms have played in the Mediterranean during these golden years, like 2016-2017. Thus, the truth that surprises me is that now the PP is worried about this situation which they once managed, and managed in the same way as it is being managed right now. The picture is absolutely worrisome. And this weekend, 300 illegal immigrants attacked the fence at Melilla. Ceuta has collapsed. Forty landings have arrived at Almeria, Alicante, Murcia and Canarias. More than 400 arrivals. One hundred twenty Algerians free in Almeria without any type of control. Canaries with alarming arrivals that have increased 520% in respect to the totals of the previous year. And I remind you, as did Mr. Txema Guijarro not long ago, that we are in a worldwide pandemic, and there are some who if we allow to cross our borders, Spain is not protecting its sovereignty. It is not protecting Spaniards, and it is not protecting the doors and walls of its house. There have been 3,000 arrivals of illegal immigrants in the last five weeks. As of August 18, 12,237 illegal immigrants entered Spain, totals higher than Greece, and yes, this is alarming. These are not totals that we don’t have to take into account. And I cannot believe that in the first world, a country that is being extorted by countries in the third world, and we cannot do anything to avoid it, and that we don’t have our forces and agencies of security of the State available to protect our borders. It is something that I simply cannot believe. And you are promoting a migratory invasion that, besides, you are absolutely guilty. And the victims are the Spanish citizens, and you and all the tentacles of the great elites who are promoting this migratory invasion, like the progressive governments or the NGOs, are the guilty ones for all this. In the last few days we have just seen the Astral again returning to the Mediterranean, and the state will be responsible for all and every one of the deaths in the Mediterranean. Because with governments like that of Australia, which has absolutely closed and blocked the migratory routes to Australia, do you know how many deaths there are in the sea? None. When the borders are protected, the humanitarian drama is avoided. And besides, you are extorting the Spaniards because you are blaming the Spaniards who believe in the legitimate defense of their sovereignty and their borders. Of the dead Africans in the Mediterranean, who do you want to take the blame? Do you want to blame the Spaniard whose hand was cut off by an Algerian a few days ago in Barcelona? Do you want to blame the 12-year-old girl from Azuqueca de Henares who was raped by a gang of five Moroccans and a Nigerian? Do you want to blame the forces and agencies of state security or the National Police attacked last Saturday by an Algerian in the CETI detention center in Almeria? As for the forces and agencies of state security not having the means to protect themselves in the face of the public health drama we are living in. They want it to be about the citizens of the Canaries, who make up 100 of the 135 outbreaks in July. Those are outbreaks that have surged in the boats with illegal immigrants that arrived on the coasts of the Canaries. Honorable Members, multiculturalism… I already know that you, in truth, are not affected, but there are many Spaniards who are affected. Those Spaniards whom you intend to blame for wanting to protect their sovereignty and their borders. Multiculturalism works very well among Arab sheikhs, bankers in the Upper East Side and presidents of administration councils. Multiculturalism works very badly in El Puche in Almeria. It works very badly in Niger, it functions very badly in Raval in Barcelona, and it functions very badly in Lavapies. Do you believe the Spanish are going to permit their neighborhoods to be converted into multicultural dung heaps? Like Molenbeek in Brussels? Or like Barbes in Paris? Do you really believe that you can continue constantly fooling the Spanish people? The Spanish people just woke up and pointed out the guilty. They pointed out all the guilty who are generating this situation that creates insecurity in their countries. Massive regulation and the conceding of nationality, Honorable Members of Podemos, is not patriotism. It’s ketchup.
