Unwanted Air Passengers

GRA Granada AirportThe Sindicato Unificado de Policía (SUP), which is the labour union for Spanish police forces, has complained about illegal immigrants being flown in to Granada Airport.

The problem is that, according to the SUP, these illegal immigrants were flown in from the Canary Islands, which is struggling under the onslaught of immigrants landing on their coasts.

Yet it is not so much as Granada having enough problems finding room for immigrants as it is, but rather than none of these passengers have undergone a PCR test.

Three flights arrived with an average of 75 passengers aboard; i.e., over 200 immigrants in total but without a PCR certificate, “as is required from everybody else that passes through our airports,” they point out.

“The handling of the situation by the Central Government seem negligent to us,” they complained adding, “How did they even managed to board without passports, etc?”

Another reproach levied against the Central Government was that they had brought yet more illegal immigrants to a province with one of the highest arrival rates in the whole of Spain.

They said that they have no idea where the immigrants are taken after they have landed, just that buses and taxis are sent to pick them up. In fact, there is no protocol on how to receive them.

Editorial comment: what the SUP is complaining about is that somebody has bent all the rules regarding travel in these restrictive times to “unload” immigrants. In fact, the Central Government has since claimed that they knew nothing about it, which points to the island authorities’ hand being behind the affair.
