Morocco - Immigration - Sub-Saharan Illegal Immigrants

25-year-old Ali Misa from Niger is hiding in the mountains surrounding the town Beni Enzar, on the Moroccan border with Spanish enclave of Melilla. Misa left his home three years ago to reach continental Europe in hopes of finding a better life. He traveled across the Sahel, Algeria and Morocco for a year to get there. He has been living in Morroco for two years, awaiting the right moment to cross into Melilla by jumping over the razor sharp barbed wire fences. He has been arrested four times by the local Moroccan authorities who have beaten and robbed him everytime before deporting him to Algeria, from where he sets out again on foot to return to the Spanish border. He is the senior son of his family, with two brothers back home. His parents died of famine in Niger. | Location: Beni Enzar, Morocco.
