Hello everybody! I came across the phrase "una escalera de vecinos" in an El Pais article. I was curious as to what it meant. The Secretary of Migration for the UGT in Spain said "'Esto no es una escalera de vecinos. El ministro se dará pronto cuenta de que determinadas cosas no son posibles'" to describe the new migration policies that the Government is implementing in Spain (for example the segregation of immigrant kids from native kids in schools). The 'determinadas cosas' are these new policies. The article is basically describing how the Government does not openly say that there is a change in immigration policy occurring, but, looking at recently implemented policies, it seems that there is one. Based on the context, I think it might mean that to implement these policies won't be easy? or that the policies will probably be controversial and hard to implement? Please let me know what you think. Any help would be great, I'm just looking to figure out another Spanish phrase! Thank you!!
