Some 800 sub-Saharan migrants attempted to cross the border between Morocco and the Spanish enclave of Ceuta at 6:45am through a high fence. While 602 of them succeeded, 15 law enforcement officers were injured in the clashes and later taken to a hospital, the Spanish Civil Guard reported.
Border agents arrested hundreds on the Moroccan side and more were detained in Ceuta, El Pais reports.
Since the beginning of the year, according to the International Organization for Migration, 3,125 migrants crossed the Spanish border through the enclaves of Melilla and Ceuta, not including those who crossed the border on Thursday. Ceuta is a Spanish autonomous city in North Africa, sharing a four-mile-long border with Morocco. Rabat has repeatedly called on Madrid to transfer the sovereignty over Ceuta and the neighboring city of Melilla. The residents of the city insist the territories should remain part of Spain.
Maybe it’s time for Trump to give Spain some advice on that whole “Wall on the Southern border” thing..
