35 migrants arrived at Las Salinas this morning ((18 men, 3 women and 14 minors) - https://www.diariodefuerteventura.com/no...WvhjNt-V8w

I wondered what the helicopter activity was early this morning.

Once detained I would expect the authorities to grant a visa (let them stay on the island/move them to the mainland) or to repatriate them to their country of departure.

If they are allowed to stay on the island, I assume they will not have to go through the rigmarole of becoming `'residents" i.e no private health care or a quantity of Money in the bank such as the  procedures for people who want to live on the island from the UK or other countries. Anyone want to join me in a small boat?  LOL!

You are becoming very cynical Emmi, and while I was born that way or so my parents always told me Big Grin I thought better of you Rolleyes
To me drinking responsibly means do not spill it.

LOL! I  certainly can be cynical but generally I reserve it for special circumstances!

Pretty risky business IMHO - not many of the migrants make it alive to the Canary Islands. Easier for them to go up north and take the boat to Mainland Europe.

... not sure if I would ever consider to go through things like that just to have a better life. Definitely wouldn't change my life with any of them. 🤔

Without meaning to be flippant that is relatively easy to say when you HAVE a better life. I see why they do it, they all want what we have. While I have a great deal of sympathy for genuine refugees from war/abuse/genocide I am totally against letting in the ones that use this situation to travel as economic migrants!!!
