Vox’s candidate Rocío Monasterio attended the first debate in the 4M elections with the poster that her party installed at Sol station and in which she designates unaccompanied foreign minors. A poster with a message of hatred in front of which the rest of the formations are positioned. “In Spain it seems that telling the truth is a hate crime,” complained Monasterio.
Despite the fact that the data that appears on said poster is not true – unaccompanied minors do not receive 4,700 euros per month or withdraw the money from the pension to retirees – Monastery continued with the same message and urged viewers google the words “menas, Batán” on their cell phones, which he directly accuses of having engendered insecurity in neighborhoods and squatting homes.
“Women are afraid to go out on the streets because they meet a group of menas,” he said. También ha puesto el ejemplo de una señora mayor que le habría contado “llorando” lo que le ocurrió, supuestamente, in Ciudad Lineal: “Cuando salía al supermercado le habían okupado la casa. Tenía todos sus ahorros en esa vivienda y se la okuparon al go to the supermarket”.
“I want to know and say who comes into my home, to whom I open my door and what rules they must follow,” concluded the candidate of the far-right party. Those statements did not go well with the United frontman We Can, who reminded Monasterio that Vox “was threatening to expel a Spanish citizen for being black and for being our candidacy.” “What you defend has no place in democracy”, condemned Pablo Iglesias.
Socialist Ángel Gabilondo also spoke, who considered that the poster “is not acceptable because there are no values or human sensitivity”. And for her part, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, denied the data provided by Monastery and indicated that “as long as they are in Madrid, we are obliged by law to assist and help them, out of charity”.
