Morocco - Immigration - Sub-Saharan Illegal Immigrants

20-year-old illegal Sub-Saharan immigrant Marais Moses left his native home in Ghana four years ago dreaming of reaching Europe. He worked his way up through Nigeria into Algeria, doing odd jobs until he reached Morocco. Unable to pay mafia or a smuggler for entry into mainland Spain, he went to the border near the Spanish enclave of Melilla and has been living in the forests surrounding the border for over a year. He has been out of touch with his mother. His father died when he was a child. His broken jaw is due to police brutality when they tried to arrest him last week. The Moroccan authorities have been rounding up illegal sub-Saharan immigrants, under pressure from the EU to control their borders. Thousands of sub-Saharan immigrants spend anywhere from 4 months to 6 years attempting to reach mainland Europe, either by boat or on foot from Morocco. | Locatio
