Spanish Minister Claims Country Needs ‘Millions and Millions’ of Migrants

José Luis Escriva, Spanish Minister for Social Security, Inclusion, and Migration, has claimed the country requires millions of new migrants to combat the forecasted demographic decline in the near future.

According to Mr Escriva, the demographic projections for Spain are so dire that the country will require “eight or nine million people just to keep our working population at the same level”, and noted that other countries should be “prepared to integrate” large migrant populations, France Info reports

“The demographic trajectories are there. It will happen, we will not escape it,” Escriva said during a meeting of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in Paris on Thursday.

“We must be prepared to integrate into our societies, if we want to maintain our comfort levels, a certain number of additional migrants and our population will be more mixed,”

he said and added: “We have to prepare societies for this. Explain to them why it is good for them, for their children, and for generations to come.”
