Spanish PM: "I am not in favour of borders"

The "conservative" (centre-right) Spanish Prime Minister, Mariano Rajoy, when responding to a question about Donald Trump's immigration measures, said:
Well, I am not in favour of vetoes or borders nor do I believe the world will walk in that direction. So I hope that in the future that this will be fixed and we will all be in a situation of normality.

He is not in favour of borders. A breakaway right-wing party responded as follows:
The prime minister’s comments were slammed by the president of VOX, a right wing, Christian democratic party created by former PP members, who argued that “a nation without borders is not a nation. A leader who says he’s not in favour of borders is a leader who is not willing to defend his homeland”, Santiago Abascal said in a statement issued Tuesday.

The liberal mainstream, whether of left or right, is sticking with globalisation. I can only hope that this is met with the rise of a patriotic party in Spain as has happened elsewhere in Europe.
