Morocco - Immigration - Sub-Saharan Illegal Immigrants

Abdela Afiz's father died when Abdela was 12. He is an illegal Sub-Saharan immigrant originally from Ghana, now 25, and a Rastafarian. He left home seven years ago, like many others with terrible stories of their struggles to reach the European Union. He claims he has been living in Morocco for five years trying to reach the Spanish enclave of Melilla, next to the Moroccan border. He paid 650 euros to reach the Canary Islands in 2000, but the boat engine failed and he and his fellow travelers were stranded until rescued by Moroccan fishermen. He has attempted entry into Melilla three times, only to fall into no man's land and return through the fence. He is now hiding in the mountains with another seven Ghanians demoralized by the recent raid by Moroccan gendarmerie. When asked if he would return home, Abdela replied that there is nothing there for him. | Locatio
