The Catalans have spent many years of hard work, good economic judgement, good manners and good behaviour making a beautiful country.The majority of immigrants come from countries which have not yet reached this standard otherwise they would have no wish or need to leave their own country.Catalonia should have and use the right to admission, and make all immigrants learn that it is a priviledge to live in Catalonia, not a right.
