The second session of the investiture debate that more than predictably will make Isabel Díaz Ayuso the president of the Community of Madrid with the votes of Vox has exploded with tension with the intervention of Rocío Monasterio.
The Vox spokesperson in the Madrid Assembly has accused the deputy of United We Can Serigne Mbayé, of the Union of Manteros of Madrid and activist for the rights of migrants, of having entered Spain illegally “skipping the queue” and This has asked him to withdraw his words, respect and that his “racism” not be accepted in the Chamber.
Monasterio used these words during his aggressive speech on the second Day of the Investiture Debate at the Madrid Assembly. The Vox spokeswoman has started by saying that multiculturalism “is a condemnation for all Spaniards, as it is for the French, Belgians or Germans. “
“It is not racism to report the knife attack of a boy in Moncloa To steal his cell phone, it is not racism to say that 611% of crime increased when the ore center was open in Batán. That is not racism, it is the reality suffered by many Madrilenians every day “, he has launched.
Skip the queue
Next, the Vox spokeswoman has assured that the his party’s problem with deputy Mbaye “is not that he is black, white, tall or short”, rather, he is a person who “entered illegally, skipping the entrance queue of many legal entities that had met the requirements and who for years has profited by selling illegally at the doors of businesses and SMEs.”
Not a step back from the racist attacks by Monasterio and the far right.
We are taking firm steps to eliminate discrimination and racism from institutions and from people’s lives. Their intolerance does not fit in them.

These words of the leader of Vox in Madrid have aroused a stir in the bench on the left while Monastery continued to say that his party is not “racist” but distinguishes between “those who break the law and those who don’t”. Given this, the deputy of United We Can Mbaye has asked the president of the Madrid Assembly, Eugenia Carballedo, for allusions to article 114, who has given it to him.
“Take back your racist words”
“I ask Monastery to withdraw his racist words, because in Spain not even this House is allowed to treat a person in a racist way. I am Spanish like her and respect must be done in this Chamber and I ask you to withdraw those racist words that you have declared towards me and all immigrants, “he launched with his fist raised and with the support of all the deputies of Podemos, More Madrid and PSOE who have stood up to applaud him.
Monastery has refused to withdraw his words because she refers to the fact that she entered Spain illegally, which does not mean that “she is Spanish now.” For a few moments he has maintained the controversy by ensuring that he did not know exactly what words he was referring to, what words he should withdraw.
Refusal to withdraw the words
Faced with this attitude, the President of the Assembly, Eugenia Carballedo, has turned out that “it is evident that she does not want to withdraw them” and has regretted not being able to withdraw them for her, but has invited her to do so again. “I ask you to withdraw the direct allusions to the deputy who has just spoken. You have already said no, I insist and insist on the no, and I respect that, “Carballedo reiterated, something that all the deputies of the Chamber except Vox have applauded.
PSOE spokeswoman, Hana Jalloul, who intervened just after Monastery, has transferred “a very heartfelt hug” to his partner, because “the people are not illegal, in any case they are in administrative irregularity and nothing else.”
