Enemy at the Gates
(Breitbart London) - Around 400 migrants stormed the 20-foot high barrier between Morroco and the Spanish enclave of Ceuta early Friday morning leading to over a hundred injuries.
The migrant wave is the largest in over a decade and easily overran the Spanish border security and police who could only account for 20 per cent of the migrants by noon Friday. The route through the western part of the Mediterranean has been mostly neglected by migrants in recent years, with most African migrants travelling from Libya to Italy.
While the migrant rush is the largest single crossing in years, the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla have received 7,888 migrants from January to October of this year according to the European Union (EU) border agency Frontex. Frontex has previously warned that migration from the booming populations of west African countries will make up the bulk of migrants in the coming years to the EU.
