Since the beginning of the year to date, almost 360 people have arrived on the coasts of Cádiz provice by dinghy, as stowaways, or by swimming, including the 50 arrivals in the port on the morning of 21 March and the seven people rescued, also on 21 March, by the Maritime Safety and Rescue Society in Tarifa. In relation to the first three months of 2016, this is an increase of almost 100 people, despite the fact that March is not yet over.
