Coinciding with the end of the Alarm State, the Balearic Islands are once again the landing area for boats manned by immigrants mainly from Algeria. In the past 10 days, six boats have reached the coast of the archipelago. At least four in the last few hours, although more are suspected.

Between yesterday and today, agents from the Civil Guard and National Police arrested forty migrants in southern Mallorca, in Formentera and in the waters of Cabrera, an uninhabited island that is a national park for its special ecological value, vetoed by free navigation.

There, in the waters of this virgin islet, thirteen people were arrested, twelve of them from Algeria and one from Morocco.

It is the day with the most intercepted migrants so far this year.

The operation is still ongoing, as it is suspected that more vessels may have reached the islands taking advantage of the good weather conditions. Authorities are trying to locate his crew. According to government sources in the Balearic Islands, 27 people have been arrested so far.

All detainees undergo a health care protocol that includes a PCR test to rule out that they are infected with coronavirus. So far, they have all been negative.

As detention centers are closed, detainees are often released while awaiting the execution of their repatriation procedures by the courts.

As was the case last year, when the boat arrival record for the Islands was broken in the summer, the government repeatedly denies that the Balearic Islands are part of an illegal immigration route as an entry point to Spain and maintains that the The migrants’ final destination is not the archipelago.

However, the truth is that the flow of boats has not stopped growing for two years and the Balearic Islands have become a gateway for many boats from North Africa. The proximity of the ports of northern Algeria (such as Dellys, a city where many of them come from) made the islands a hot spot for the arrival of these types of boats, small motor boats that usually arrive in the days of calm and when the winds from the south are blowing.
