La inmigración en España Several recent events have contributed to the migration issue has been placed in the foreground of attention. Massive assaults on border fences in Ceuta and Melilla put a face to the desperate conditions of life of many who are struggling to reach a country like Spain. The events in France sounded alarms about the deficits of integration and the erosive effects of social exclusion. Finally, the last CIS Surveys have shown that an important part of the public (over 40%) tend to see migration as the second problem of Spain, just behind the strike, while a sector is emerging ranging from twenty to thirty percent seen in attitudes of rejection and xenophobic, especially among young people, manual workers and the unemployed. Hence the importance of moving vigorously in the debate over immigration and the need to place this issue on the political agenda to a level similar priority to the importance ascribed to the public. First, we must be aware that this is a complex social phenomenon and important . In Spain we have spent very little time to have only 840,594 foreign residents in 1991, many retired Europeans, to have 4,229,113, according to latest official data from the municipal census of June 2005, representing 9.5% of the population. That is, in a period of little more than a decade there has been a 403% growth, with nearly three and a half million new immigrants. In the past five years has grown at an average of half a million people a year, being able to project that, unless trends change, bring the volume of the foreign population resident in Spain for more than seven million people in 2010 ( about 16% of the population), but could exceed ten million by 2015. The concentration of immigration in certain areas of Spain is leading, for example, in the Community of Madrid has already exceeded the rate of 16% of the population, with some districts of the city of Madrid with a 30% foreign.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
