Hundreds broke into Europe through Morocco earlier today.
We’ve been reporting about the invasion of the Spanish territories on the coast of Morocco in recent weeks, here and here. The largest group yet of supposed asylum seekers scaled the barbed wire barriers while the world fixates on Russia’s brazen move on the Ukraine.
I would suggest that what is happening to countries on Europe’s borders—Italy, Greece, Bulgaria, Spain and Malta— with the waves of largely Muslim men breaking into those countries, will have a more significant impact on the future of Europe than what Putin is doing at the moment, yet the politically-correct media just can’t (or won’t) see it.

(Reuters) – About 500 people forced their way into Spain’s North African enclave of Melilla on Tuesday, Spanish officials said, the largest number to storm the border in almost a decade as increasing naval patrols discourage entry by sea.
Spain has two enclaves in Morocco, Ceuta and Melilla, and migrants from all over Africa regularly try to reach them, mostly by climbing the triple barriers that separate them from Morocco. Deaths and injuries are common.
Making the most of dense fog to sneak up to the crossing and climb the high wire fence, a total of 1,100 people, according to Spanish figures, and about 600, according to Morocco, made a rush across the border throughout the night and morning.
“There’s been a mass rush (which was) unfortunately violent, which has become the norm. On the Moroccan side they threw stones, sticks and other objects at the security forces,” Melilla governor Melilla, Abdelmalik El Barkani, told reporters.
Thousands of migrants camp for months around Beni Chiguer, from where the attempts were made on Tuesday. The area is covered in shrubs, providing daytime cover for people who then attempt to cross by night.
Migrants enter the enclaves without official documents, often without belongings and wearing just flimsy shoes and shorts, and are housed in temporary centers until their identity can be determined or until they are moved.
Many end up in continental Spain and either stay there or travel throughout Europe.
Be sure to watch this Russian TV clip of the live action. Ironically, Russia is one of the few European countries that probably ‘gets-it’ about the migrant invasion.
