Since the crisis, almost 35.000 Spanish came to Argentina looking for work
December 14, 2010
Similar to what occurred in the nineteenth century, thousands of young Spanish are arriving in the country in search of work because of the terrible economic crisis facing their country. In two years, almost 35 thousand immigrants arrived in Argentina.
All returns: Just as 10 years ago, in 2001 and 2002 when the Argentines fled to Europe (notably Spain) because of the economic catastrophe, today its yesterday’s hosts who move.
According to what a Madrid daily Public reported, since 2008 33,543 Spanish have reached Argentina because of the crisis, almost a third of all exiles from that country.
However, there is a radical difference from the previously named migrations: Contrary to our new guests, Argentina has not expelled people, has not deported anyone without specific reasons, there is no discrimination with ferocity, a lesson that Spain should learn.
Among the thousands of migrants fleeing the Spanish unemployment rate of 20%, there are Argentines who had departed for 10 or 35 years ago, and prefer the modest 8% of unemployment in Argentina to risk their chances in a foreign country.
