The PP senator for Gran Canaria, Sergio Ramos, has requested the urgent appearance of the Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, to report on
20 immigrants arrived by boat and pending expulsion who escaped from the Barranco Seco Detention Center for Foreigners (CIE) in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

In a statement released this Monday, the PP senator will ask the minister about the action protocols that have failed on the part of the Ministry of the Interior so that the inmates have managed to escape from the compound last Sunday night after jumping a wall, as well as why the number of police officers guarding the Barranco Seco CIE.

According to Ramos,
"This is yet another chapter of the unacceptable management maintained by the Government of Spain regarding to the situation of irregular immigration that has affected the Canary Islands, for a little over two years, to which the central Executive continues without reacting and without implementing measures that allow it to face one of the main problems of the archipelago«.

The popular senator considers that it is
“The permanent apathy that the Sánchez government maintains with respect to irregular immigration is incomprehensible« and has insisted on denouncing the "absence of a serious and responsible migration policy, which sheds a little light on the serious situation affecting the Canary Islands, and in the face of the terrible humanitarian drama."

In this regard, Ramos recalled that during the past year more than 4,000 people lost their lives at sea in an attempt to reach the coasts of the islands, according to figures from NGOs.

The senator stressed that it is necessary «
put an end to this situation, once and for all, by establishing bilateral agreements with migrant-sending countries and using the available tools. All that is needed is for the central government to wake up from its lethargy and show the necessary will to put an end to this bleak panorama," he concluded.
