Evolución de la inmigración en España

Ya sabes que soy un inmigrante desde los EE.UU y vivo en España. La inmigración en España es interesante. Como en EE.UU. es una polemica y los derechos echarle la culpa de muchas problemas en los inmigrantes.

Desde el año 2000, España ha presentado una de las mayores tasas de inmigración del mundo, de tres a cuatro veces mayor que la tasa media de Estados Unidos. Y España ha sido, tras EE.UU., el segundo país del planeta que más inmigrantes ha recibido en números absolutos. En los cinco años posteriores, la población extranjera se había multiplicado por cuatro, asentándose en el país casi tres millones de nuevos habitantes. Según el censo del 2008, el 11,3% de los residentes en España era de nacionalidad extranjera.

Evolution of Immigration in Spain

You already know that I am an immigrant from the US and live in Spain. Immigration in Spain is interesting. As in the US, it is politicized and the right-wing blames many problems on immigrants.

From the year 2000, Spain has displayed one of the greater rates of immigration in the world, from three to four times greater than the average rate of the United States. And Spain has been, after the U.S., the second country of the planet that has received the most immigrants in absolute numbers. In the past five years, the foreign population has multiplied by four, almost three million new inhabitants being based in the country. According to the census of the 2008, 11.3% of the residents in Spain are of foreign nationality.

Well it is more difficult to emigrate to Spain than people from the UK. EU citizens have it easier than those of us in either North America or Oceania. Actually the rate of emigration to Spain from the US and Australia, based on population, is about the same. I think a lot of people from the UK emigrate to Spain because of its proximity, climate and cost of living.
