There is nothing new about foreign nationals arriving in Barcelona to develop their life plans. In the 20th century, the people arriving in the city mostly came from other parts of Spain. But from the 1980s onwards, a significant number of people from Latin America and Northern Africa started to arrive. It was in this context that the Care Service for Immigrants, Emigrants and Refugees (SAIER) was created in Barcelona, with the aim of welcoming and providing support for migrants, asylum seekers and refugees arriving in the city.
