Over a thousand illegal migrants organized an attempt to cross Spain’s border around 4 a.m. on New Year’s Day.
Their mission was not successful, but it was violent. Many were injured — including one Spanish officer who lost an eye in the fight.
According to Yahoo News:
A group of 1,100 people from sub-Saharan Africa trying to reach Europe stormed the border fence just after 4 am (0300 GMT) on New Year’s Day in an “extremely violent and organised” way, said the central government’s representative office in Ceuta.
None however managed to get through, bar two who were badly injured and taken to hospital in Ceuta, the office said in a statement. A similar assault on December 9 saw more than 400 migrants enter the tiny enclave.
They tried “to force open some of the doors in the external fence, using iron bars, wire cutters and large stones with which they assaulted Moroccan forces and (Spanish) Guardia Civil (police) agents,” it added.
Many liberal news sources would emphasize how these individuals are seeking a “better life”.
In the process of seeking that better life for themselves, illegals bring destruction and violence to the border and risk the lives of those attempting to maintain peace, security, and stability.
The focus is on the “man perched at the top of the six-metre high fence, sitting uncomfortably near rolls of barbed wire, his head hanging down onto his chest”, slowly climbing “down to a space between both fences and lies down as a Spanish policeman fetches him a bottle of water before taking him to an entry back into Morocco.”
Never mind the fact that those same individuals would take lives to have a better life for themselves.
What makes a country so desirable to illegals is safety and stability.
By illegally migrating to European countries and using physical force to enter, these individuals are creating exactly what they are allegedly fleeing from.
