'Canarias 50' opens to start transferral of immigrants from hotels
The Ministry of Migration has announced the imminent opening of the first phase of the Canarias 50 reception centre in Gran Canaria for irregular immingrants, with an initial capacity of 442 people, which will increase to 1,320 people, allowing the transferral of people from hotels and apartment complexes to this facility.
The Secretary of State for Migration has ensured that the rest of the areas of the Plan Canarias will be deployed in the coming weeks, and confirmed that one of the hotels that was temporarily serving as a reception space in December, has already been closed.
This is one of the centres that immigrants are housed in after they have been tested and completed their initial 72 hours reception. In total they are creating 7,000 reception places, and ‘Canarias 50’ is the second space of the Canarias Plan, after the opening of the León School in late December.
