Sample text

In several speeches former Prime Minister José Maria Aznar took advantage of these European developments by advocating even stricter European policies against ‘illegal’ immigration, and by repeatedly associating such immigration with crime. Former Interior Minister, Mariano Rajoy, who had followed Mayor Oreja on the job, declared in the same spirit that “an excess of immigrants causes marginalization and crime” (La Verdad, May 13, 2002). Mayor Oreja himself confirms this explicitly in an interview with El Periódico of May 26, 2002: (9) Normalmente lo ilegal lleva al delito.

It may be expected that the amalgamation of preoccupations about crime, security, terrorist violence and immigration will be furthered also in political discourse in Spain, as is already the case in other countries and at the international level. EU meetings and policies also usually combine the topics of crime and immigration. Apart from the association of ‘illegal’ immigration and crime, the official political discourses that accompany immigration and integration policies are not generally explicitly racist.

If an autonomous region or nation like Catalonia should have a ‘central’ or ‘dominant’ culture, this culture should be Catalan culture. Pujol and those who agree with such ideas conveniently forget that Catalan culture and identity are themselves shaped historically by many other cultures, as many critical commentators in the press also emphasized. In the future this undoubtedly will be the same, that is, Catalan culture will necessarily integrate the cultures of the many immigrants that will arrive in Catalonia, especially from Africa and Latin America, in the decades ahead.
