The popular mayor of Social Welfare, Juan Carrion, lamented "the levity and insensibility of IU + municipal group Los Verdes and the manipulation of reality and the dirty game that is conducting the coalition to confuse the neighbors Totana and especially those of foreign origin on the policies undertaken by the City in terms of reception and integration of immigrants. "
Carrion noted in a statement that "progress in Totana through good governance held in this matter from the municipal department, is shown with the quantity and quality of projects financed from regional and state administration and the participation of the City in defining public policies they carry out these authorities aimed at the whole society. "
In this sense, the mayor noted "the unfounded and clearly demagogic demonstrations IU poured on him and the municipal government in which relates municipal involvement in religious matters in order to seek votes of people of foreign origin criticizes other aspects of municipal policy of integration of immigrants in the locality "
Carrion recalled that "the announcement of the liturgy and the procession on the occasion of the Virgen del Cisne-made for him as councilman of Immigration (and no social services and the group insists municipal name) - is part of program of events planned to commemorate this festival has been promoted by the organizers immigrant groups, and the municipal government has played a secondary role and testimonial of support and respect to them the same way as in other festivals of similar characteristics developed the locality "
He highlighted the "climate of coexistence, respect and tolerance reached totanera society in recent years declared that it was" pathetic "attempt to monopolize that IU capacity and material and moral legitimacy to engage in any immigration policies, and cling to the past, going back almost five years in time-to argue these critics and discredit the various measures implemented by the municipal governments of the PP for the reception and integration of immigrants in the locality. "
This attitude is the council that IU is "fruit of the increasing disinterest, ignorance, and ignorance of local group members for such activities as evidenced by its lack of participation, especially in the last legislature, both when making proposals constructive initiatives in the field and in the repeated and absolute absence of its members to the City Council of immigration body created in 2004 to provide a forum for dialogue, debate and participation of all actors involved with the reality of immigration "
In order to promote and enhance awareness of the reality of the group members municipal UI, Carrion said that "over the last two terms of the PP governments have developed a strong policy, stable and effective to meet the reception and integration of immigrants and the promotion of cultural coexistence since the establishment of a strong and effective municipal department that has a lever "diverse professional (when he ruled there were no professional IU or any immigration program)."
And the development of many other programs, reception, education, training, employment, housing, social services, health, children and youth, participation, awareness, etc, "he adds.
Since these programs through the implementation of proper planning (I Plan for the integration of immigrants), as explained by the popular mayor, "provides financial and technical support to immigrants with emphasis on the most vulnerable ( this year will exceed 20,000 euros when the IU and PSOE government the amount of such aid amounted to 0), and developing mediation proceedings for coexistence, education and intercultural awareness, social programs and labor competition, etc. ".
Also, Carrion showing his surprise "at being accused by this news" sink associations supporting immigrants "when under management have been established almost all the cooperation agreements that the City has signed in its history with local authorities social initiative to develop projects for promotion and integration of the immigrants, seeking to expand and diversify each year this support to other associations, in addition to the traditionally provided a welcome-Murcia, given the concerns and interest of new proposals and projects " .
On the other hand, the mayor notes that this statement IU municipal group "is very serious because it hurts, offends and grieves the group of immigrants from the town, especially from Ecuador, as being manipulated and influenced by religious devotion "
Finally Carrión said he hoped that members of the municipal group of IU "abandon its strategy of distortion and blurring of the facts," beating as far as possible the anxiety that can lead to the closeness of the election period, "and engaged with approaching its political responsibility to the social reality of the residents of Totana and especially those of foreign origin and participate constructively in improving the resolution of the problems of ourselves "
