Visit of Paulino Rivero Baute, President of the Government of Canarias, to Jacques Barrot

1 views

Paulino Rivero Baute, President of the Government of Canarias, was in Brussels on 8 October 2008 for talks with Jacques Barrot, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Justice, Freedom and Security, on migration issues. Paulino Rivero Baute is seeking the support of the European Union in dealing with illegal immigration, and in particular with the issue of non-accompanied minors. The EU moved on 7 October to export its controls on illegal immigration for the first time by setting up a new office in Africa, the first of several it plans to open to try to deal at source with a flood of migration. Immigrants traditionally attempted to cross the Strait of Gibraltar to get to the Spanish mainland but a crackdown there has led traffickers to increasingly use longer and more dangerous routes, including to Spain's Canary Islands located to west of Morocco. Nearly 5,400 illegal immigrants have arrived on Canary Islands so far in 2008, down from 6,655 who landed on the archipelago during the same period in 2007, according to government figures.
