JUST IMAGINE FOR A SECOND if this had happened in Bush's USA, or in Aznar's Spain, instead of Zapatero's Spain:
A memo leaked to Spanish media this week is purported to have instructed one particular police station in the Madrid area — not in Lavapies — to arrest 30 undocumented immigrants per week.

The Interior Ministry has denied there is any quota system. But police unions complain they are under pressure to make arrests, and say officers pushed to meet their targets have ended up simply stopping foreign-looking people at random at train stations and bus stops.
It's even worse: according to Spanish media, that leaked memo allegedly instructed police officers to aim for Moroccans preferably, as they're cheaper to deport since their home country is nearer.
