Jumping the Fence Into Melilla, Yet Again

Yet another batch of illegal migrants attempted to get across the fence into Melilla, the Spanish enclave on the coast of North Africa.

Those who get through gain comfortable accommodations, food, clothing, and spending money. Under law, their applications for asylum must be considered, and will be formally processed by the authorities. Those who are denied asylum will in all likelihood never be deported, and will have the run of the EU.

There’s no downside to this for the culture-enrichers, except for the possibility of falling off the wall and breaking their necks when they attempt to enter Melilla.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

Video transcript:

00:09   Around 7:30 in the morning, some 150 sub-Saharan migrants
00:13   tried to jump the fence at Melilla, and about 85-90 of them succeeded,
00:18   according to sources in the Civil Guards. In addition, 12 of them were stopped at the border,
00:23   and another one was transported to the hospital for injuries
00:26   which are presumed to be due to the fall.
00:29   Agents assisted him and delivered him to health workers.
00:33   An officer of the Civil Guard was also slightly injured in the ankle.
00:36   In the pictures one can see how the people of Melilla saw the group of people
00:40   who managed to arrive in the city. For the moment,
00:44   no further details are known.
