According to a report of the Spanish Observatory of Racism and the Xenophobia, that aims at a change in the image of immigration due to the economic crisis. He concludes that the Spaniards consider that the immigrants are the group ” more protegido” , that perceives more than they contribute and that they monopolize the aid. Four of each ten Spaniards are in favor of expelling the immigrants who are in unemployment situation during long time and 80% almost think that ” is a number; excesivo” or ” elevado” of foreigners in Spain. They are numbers that come off the report elaborated by several experts at the request of the Spanish Observatory of Racism and the Xenophobia, of the Ministry of Work and Immigration, that analyzes the data picked up by the Sociological Research center at the end of 2009 on the attitudes towards immigration in Spain.
The data of the report continue the tendency registered already during 2008. The Spaniards consider that the immigrants they are the group ” more protegido” , that perceives more than they contribute and that they monopolize the aid, mainly the students, and it continues itself attributing responsibility to them in the deterioration of the quality of the sanitary attention and the education. The report reflects that there have been no variations in the appreciation of the diversity that contributes immigration, although have raised the acceptance of the expulsion of a student to take Islamic veil and have backed down the disposition to that they maintain his culture and its customs. The authors give the change in the image of immigration to the economic crisis and notice that she has a greater incidence in the population groups that more are exhibited to the competition in the labor market.
