ERC is calling for extraordinary regularization for 500,000 people it estimates are undocumented in Spain


In 2021, the government regularized more than 2,000 migrants “by first and last name and studied their particular situation,” revealed Minister for Integration, Social Security and Migration José Luis Escrivá, who has opposed “indiscriminate” regularizations.

“In the Ministry of Inclusion, we have made regularizations with individual files, we have granted residence and work permits to more than 2,000 people in 2021 by name and surname, we have studied their situation and we have strengthened the administrative mechanisms so that it is that really works for the lives of the most vulnerable,” Escrivá defended.

This was hinted at by the Minister for Inclusion this Wednesday during the plenary session of Congress in response to a question from Esquerra Republicana MP María Carvalho on the regularization of migrants living in Spain.

Carvalho has criticized what he sees as a “utilitarian” vision of reforming the regime of immigration law and has called for extraordinary regularization of the more than 500,000 migrants he estimates live in Spain without papers.

The minister stressed that this is “not possible”, not only because “the European framework prevents it”, but also because the government believes in a migration model “not based on indiscriminate regularizations” but on “durable solutions”. .

In addition, Escrivá has highlighted that more than 10,000 young migrants with guardianship have already benefited from the new immigration regulations that came into force last November 2021, which allow young migrants with guardianship not to be left undocumented if they do so legal ends reach old age and have access to employment.

“During the pandemic, we approved a first reform of the Immigration Regulations to allow unaccompanied minors and former guardians to access the labor market under normal conditions, a historic demand that in half a year has already benefited more than 10,000 young people. doomed to irregularity, exploitation and the informal economy,” he stressed.
