I am aware of the terrible situation they are living for several accounts and I'm still in Spain. I have heard of a mother (among many) that calls for Twitter 1 euro to support his 2 year old daughter. It has been left homeless and can not rely on anyone. Except to the solidarity of the world. My wish is that this crisis will serve to understand that there are many millions of people suffering in the world and that we must not only act when the crisis affects us personally or our country, we must act to achieve reverse the horror of hunger and slavery exists in many places. I uploaded also the publication.

Here is an example of a country which does not have clear cut immigration laws, destroying the lives of people in Spain who basically let the Ecuadorians stay. Now that the Spanish economy is in the toilet, they are enacting arbitrary laws to remove them.
Last year, Greece at least has stopped illegal immigration; they simply detained thousands, and had them returned .

Now, why can't we do what Greece did in the UK? My son has to be earning a wage to support his wife before she can come into the UK, if he ever comes back from Australia! Why can't others?

Actually, I know that people from the UK have suffered badly in Spain. They retired there on beach front property and then a company comes along and wants to put up time shares or flats so the mayor seizes the properties as it means that there will be work for the village. The owners have no right and lose their homes.

There should be proper protection for buyers and there should be an obligation for solicitors to provide clear advice on any contracts. There should also be an immediate investigation if such advice is found to be faulty with compensation paid to those affected.

Many people are furious that the governing Popular Party was quick to bail out its ailing banks with more than 41 billion euro in European-lent funds, but has yet to offer indebted homeowners relief or even a real reprieve from evictions.

Sounds like every Country is using the same playbook. Pay back the Banksters who robbed the people in the first place. These loan scams were well known over here and I'm sure in Spain as well, yet no authority did anything to stop it. Allowing people to get into loans they could not afford, did not understand, or the terms so wrapped up in a legalize that only the lender knew the outcome.....you get screwed.

I'm tired of the Knowledged Theives getting away with it and then the blame is placed upon the victims be they born in the Country or were immigrants. Many immigrants were prime pickings for these Greedy Theives, knowing that a person with lower education, not use to the system of a Country, didn't understand the language, using dirty tricks to suck people into their scams now everyone has to pay for it.

This talk of moral bankrupcy of not helping the homeowners yet when it comes to the Greedy Ones in the Banks it is never mentioned about their moral bankrupcy, they just keep getting bailed out in a system that is rigged to aid and protect the Theives.
