Junts per Catalunya is dedicated to accelerating the conclusion of its ideology on immigration management in Catalonia. The management of the independence celebration met this Saturday in El Morell (Tarragona) and ratified the necessity to give precedence to insurance policies that regularize the state of affairs of foreigners residing in Catalonia. The coaching technique entails advancing the group of a “convention on immigration” the place probably the most essential positions and measures that should be established within the brief time period are outlined, to make the most of the impact within the subsequent two electoral calls: the European elections in June and the Catalan ones, scheduled for February subsequent yr. “That they accuse us of being xenophobic is something unworthy,” reproached the final secretary of the formation, Jordi Turull. “The rise of the extreme right is the fault of the parties that avoid debate,” he burdened.

Junts is powerful in the necessity to brazenly deal with the talk on immigration management in Catalonia and, throughout his speech, Turull highlighted that “coexistence and social cohesion” are at stake. In current weeks, Junts has elevated the amount of discourse on the regulation of the overseas inhabitants residing in Catalonia and a few mayors have even publicly linked immigration with a number of prison recidivism. The staging of Junts has raised varied criticisms. Oriol Junqueras, president of Esquerra Republicana, has warned that “embracing far-right speeches puts cohesion at risk” and this Saturday the previous mayor of Barcelona Ada Colau has reproached Junts for having entered into “a drift” in direction of positions particular to Vox. “They are not going to make us complex,” Turull replied, in an excited proclamation that introduced the virtually 300 attendees who made up the National Council of Junts to their ft. Not even when Turull himself had introduced that “now Puigdemont’s return is on the horizon” did he obtain such a heat response from the viewers.

This Saturday’s assembly was the primary name of the National Council of Junts after formalizing the settlement with the PSOE for the investiture of Pedro Sánchez. The appointment got here preceded by a turbulent week within the administration of Junts, as a result of rigidity generated by the negotiation with the Government for the validation of the three decree legal guidelines (work, anti-crisis measures and the omnibus) that had been submitted on Wednesday. to a vote of the Congress of Deputies. The post-convergents had introduced their intention of not supporting the Executive, however on the final minute they opted for a subterfuge: not collaborating within the vote to make it simpler for the Government to approve two of the three decrees. In change, Junts demanded the “transfer” of powers over immigration to the Generalitat.

In current instances, the deflation of the independence nerve in Catalonia coincides with an escalation of discourses on citizen insecurity and immigration, elements that within the municipal elections final May underpinned the comfy victory of Xavier García Albiol (PP) in Badalona and propelled the extremely Sílvia Orriols in Ripoll. “Catalonia has to have a national immigration policy, whether it likes it or not. We are risking the nation,” Turull proclaimed this Saturday.

The National Consell is the coordinating physique of the Junts technique and had initially been convened for December 2. It needed to be postponed as that weekend coincided with the assembly in Geneva (Switzerland) of the ideologist of the formation, Carles Puigdemont, with the quantity 3 of the PSOE, Santos Cerdán. The negotiation in Switzerland ended with the settlement to nominate the Salvadoran Francisco Galindo as verifier of the agreements between Junts and the socialists.
