Spain has been transformed from being a country of emitting emigrants, to a country, which has opened its door as a receptor of migratory flow. Moroccans, Rumanians and Ecuadorians constitute the main presence of immigrants in Spain. Madrid has been the primordial zone for immigrants to locate themselves since normally they opt for zones where there is a great economic movement, so the opportunities of finding job offers enlarge.
Nevertheless, the statistics exposed by the Secretary of Immigration and Emigration that were updated until the 31st of December of 2010 revealed that the number of Ecuadorian people inscribed in the Foreign Spanish regimen, reduced to 10.78% with comparison of the year 2009.
Compared to other collective members, the Ecuadorians were the ones with the more reduction. Other members such as the Argentinean people that are inscribed in Spain also reduced 9.83% from 2009. Does these reductions are insinuating that the crisis in Spain is making people leave the country? Nevertheless, by taking an inside view from the number of foreign people have increase 2.8% since 2009.
People coming from Rumania still show the highest percentage of the foreign people in Spain. They increase also their presence lifting it 11,85% with regards of 2009.
Within the total number of foreign with residence permit, the cipher exposes that 2.524.976 million are inscribed in the Foreign Spanish Regime. On the other hand there is still a huge presence of 2.401.632 million that are in the Communitarian Regime.
Also, by analyzing the overall ciphers in the General Regime, this leads to the conclusion that the presence of foreign people that do not belong to the European Union reduced to 37.056 with respect of the previous 2009 records. Which represents a decrease of 1.45%.
Still the percentage of immigrants in Spain is high, and most of them come from Latin America. Almost two million of people proceed from Latin America, specially focusing on the countries located at the North, whereas more than 2 million on the other hand come from the European Union.
Now that Spain has been one of the most affected countries in the European Union, the decrease in the foreign sector, does not bring any surprises since obviously they were one of the most affected sectors within unemployment and salary reductions.
