Spain: Canary Islands residents protest rising number of illegal immigrants, tensions rise after brutal attack

by A.P.

17,000 migrants arrived this year, leaving residents on the Canary Islands overwhelmed

There is growing tension in the Canary Islands in Spain between migrants and locals, and protests have been sparked following reports of migrants assaulting islanders. By the end of November this year, at least 17,000 migrants had arrived on the islands, most of whom were accommodated in hotels, apparently at the expense of Spanish taxpayers, however, there are more and more clashes with locals, and their mass presence is also a threat to tourism, which is already facing a difficult situation.

A group of angry locals marched in front of a hotel in the Canary Islands, where mostly Arab illegal immigrants are housed. According to reports, Mogan residents have had enough of the migrants who have been steadily arriving in the city in recent months, according to Hungarian news outlet Origo.

The last straw was when a 27-year-old man, Kevin, was beaten and robbed by a gang of migrants. The man became aware last Wednesday that a gang of West African Arab youths were insulting two girls in Mogan. Kevin hurried to their aid, calling on the migrants to leave the girls alone. At that point, witnesses say that members of the group attacked him while one of them shouted, “Let’s kill him.”

Kevin’s brother told the press about the incident.
