- Ceuta, France, Migrants, Morroccan, Spain, sub-Saharan Africans
On November 18, 2019, a van packed with 57 sub-Saharan Africans migrants stormed into Ceuta, violently smashing through a heavy metal border gate at 3am and managing to cross into Spanish soil.
The 34 men, 16 women, a six-year old child, and a five-month-old baby were apprehended by police after fleeing the van once it had reached Spain. Four were treated in a Ceuta hospital for minor injuries suffered in the crash.
The driver of the van, a 38-year-old Moroccan citizen with residence in France, was arrested by police for alleged crimes, against the rights of foreign citizens, injuries, disobedience and attack with the use of dangerous means.
This is not the first time that vehicles carrying illegal migrants have crashed through the border but the this latest incident involved the biggest number so far.
Instead of being immediately deported, these lawless migrants will now be rewarded and accommodated in a temporary holding center while their asylum petitions are being reviewed.
Many Illegal migrants that violently break into Europe have been shown to be very dangerous people, with values and ambitions that are in staunch opposition to Western values and laws.

“What is surprising is that it was not over the fence, or by launch, but rather by a van in which these people traveled and crossed the Tarajal (border crossing) at full speed.
According to sources on duty, four had to be transported to the university hospital as a result of their injuries although none appeared to be serious. There were no injuries among the agents who guarded the border crossing at that time.
The vehicle, after entering at full speed, managed to travel some meters until it reached the first turnoff to the university hospital.
Sources from the Civil Guard have confirmed the detention of an individual of Moroccan nationality as the perpetrator of the crimes.
One charge is an attack against authority and the other against the rights of foreign citizens. This is expected to be forwarded to judicial disposition in the coming hours.
As we said, four people had to be transported to the University Hospital with sprained ankles, nausea and vomiting although nobody’s condition appeared serious.
[Unintelligible] the circumstance, according to what medics told Ceuta Television, the vehicle ran head-on into the vehicle of a doctor who arrived at that moment to attend to an emergency.
The Iveco van remained on Doctor Abdelkrim Avenue. Around 11 am, a mobile park operator removed the vehicle.
As for the immigrants, all of them are sub-Saharan. After the events, they were transferred to central headquarters of the national police for identification and corresponding entry in CETI [Center for Temporary Residence of Immigrants] or remained in the care of the autonomous city, in the case of minors.”
