The garage wasn't legal and nor were the people working there.

11-10-2016Alejandro Sepúlveda

National Police officers from the immigration and false documentation unit have put an end to a clandestine garage workshop on Palma's Son Castelló industrial estate.

Acting on information passed to the police regarding the existence of the garage in the calle Gremi Teixidors and its workers being Africans, officers undertook an inspection. When they arrived, a group of men working at the garage ran off.

Reinforcements were called, and there was a chase through the streets of the estate. Four people were eventually arrested. All of them African, they were found to be in the country illegally. Proceedings for their deportation have been initiated.

Police are not ruling out for further arrests.

They're status is illegal. They've illegal in every sense of the word. They've broken the laws in being here, they've broken the law by working here, Threy've broken the law by working on cars without being qualified, and they're not paying social security or income tax. They're also putting peoples lives at risk, and they have no professiinal insurance. They're illegal, - get them back to their shithole countries without delay. We're all sick of it.

Lawrie: the article says that they were found to be in the country illegally, not that they are illegal. How can a person be illegal?!!
