Spain & Morocco (https://youtu.be/LY_Yiu2U2Ts) The sixth and last Vox Borders episode deals with a border between Morocco and Spain. The journey to asylum is never easy. And perhaps no one knows this better than would-be African migrants to the European Union. In North Africa, on the border of Morocco, there's a Spanish town called Melilla. It's technically Europe. So undocumented migrants and refugees, asylum seekers, wait in limbo for a chance to scale the fence and apply for asylum in Europe. It's the first of many, many hurdles. And it's a tall one.

That's it. Vox Borders is done, and I can't believe it. Thank you all so so much for being a part of this journey. I know for a fact your participation and feedback made it better.

Fantastic series! Can't wait to see what's next
Julio Uri (19 days ago)
Johnny, I admit the documentary is good but the last few sentences are misleading. First, you show that there is positive discrimination towards Syrians on the Morrocan border but then you say some countries - like Germany - are opening their border and others - like Spain - are building higher walls to avoid so. Germany opened its doors to also mainly Syrian refugees, so that's the same discrimination you show on the Northern African border. Furthermore, it is important to point out that after the massive arrival of refugees to Germany, the European Union - lead by Germany - financed countries like Turkey to restrict the access of Syrian Refugees and made a big effort to keep these people back, also in a similar way. Moreover, this open door policy towards the refugee crisis made Right Extremist parties to rise in Germany and Austria, whereas Spain, despite having 15% of inmigrant population, does not have any Right Wind extremists in the parlament. I also believe it is important to understand that it is not easy to have this kind of borders. These decisions are made not only by Spain but because Northern European countries request a better control on the bourders. It happened to me that some people from Northern European countries complained to me with respect to this! It is easy to say so when you only have bourders with the developed world! I also would like to say that I don't like these fences either and I believe migration is part of what makes us human but should be done in a legal and ordered way.

You just need electrical borders in the middle of borders and give warning. If they still want to climb take their own risk
Leon Vila (10 hours ago)
We don't need more refugees. If there was a vote to allow border police to shot real bullets at migrants that are trying to illegally cross the border, I would vote yes. If we take too much of those uneducated scum prone to aggression they will reproduce at an uncontrollable rate and turn Europe to a shithole like they did to their country.

Tommy Two Tacos (2 days ago)
Heart = broken. Why are we such huge dicks to each other when we have the technology and money that if it was all invested and applied with forethought towards the goal of making this world a better place for EVERYONE who lives here, we would enter a post-scarcity epoch full of hope and all of the rest of that beautiful hippy bullshit. Just think about how much we could get done if we didn't have the drawbacks of poverty and starvation hampering one side, with greed and corruption diminishing the soul of the other side. If instead of scrambling to gather scraps, or fill the company quota, or maintain an exaggerated facade that projects one's social status we were all able to cooperate and work together towards goals that benefited all of man-kind and enriched the human experience by pushing back the frontiers of potential. If we did chose to hone skills and accomplish goals that weren't centered on hoarding wealth or obtaining personal power, but instead rewarded us with the love of those we helped, or a greater understanding of the universe we inhabit, or the satisfaction of watching your brothers and sisters stand on the shoulders of your accomplishments to reach even greater heights than you were capable of. I just don't understand why we chose to be such small creatures when we could so easily be so much more than this.

The problem with Morocco is that they don't accept their own deported immigrants. When immigrants become criminals in Europe they can be deported but their country of emigration has to accept them. And no, Arabs don't look a like Europeans. And often, they don't behave like Europeans as well. Many say that they are from Syria although they are from different countries.

Oh well, at least they don't got shot at, riddled with bullets, like how it was at the Berlin Wall, and Iron Curtain. Regarding Morocco also guarding it, I guess it's much like when someone is going to cross an international border, at the side before crossing they check if your documentation is in order for the other side. That's quite an exclave, with cutting through a harbour. Yeah, Spain should give up Spanish Morocco to Morocco. I was wondering what is the point in Spain hanging on to it, or them.

I wonder what would happen to European refugees who violated a border in a Chinese, Hispanic, African, or Arab nation? The guards wouldn't be using batons, they'd be firing AKs.

I just sold my house I've had in Barcelona, Spain. I pulled all my money out of the banks (yes I had deposits at 3 banks) I've had a presence there for over 12 years. Not anymore. The Arabs that are being let in are raping, forming roaming gangs, pillaging and vandalism. They have turned a city I loved into a warzone in some parts. It's gotten pretty bad and it's only going to get worse. I'm actually white and a U.S. citizen but I speak English, Catalan, Spanish, German and Portuguese. I just don't feel safe there anymore. I've had a long time friend there also that recently closed his businesses and let the workers go and is going to sell the property and leave for good. Europe has gotten so bad in some areas they're almost like the places these "refugees" are coming from. Im in the process of purchasing a large bit of land on a small island in the Exumas (Bahamas Commonwealth), Their government and banks are welcoming foreign investors as they are needing an economic boost badly and the current administration is trying it's best to avoid selling anymore land to China (Chinese raze and destroy everything. That's why the Vietnamese are rioting and protesting over the recent government lease to the Chinese). I loved Spain, I loved the culture the people the Mediterranean, the history. But the immigrants have ruined it, and it's getting worse. I feel sorry for those that do not have the means to leave.

It is straight up weird to me. If you believe you have the "right" to not invite others, because you were be born in western countries, that gained so much money from oppressing the rest of the world. Doesnt that entail that you believe it was a right thing to oppress these people? Like if your fathers father destroyed other lives to give you this, and you inherently believe that it is yours. Doesnt that mean, you also have other lives on you conscious? The answer to that can either go with you believe ancestors were right to do so, which leads to the idea that you believe these people should....die, or something in those lines. Or, no I dont believe that we should keep what we oppressed or the....I want the luck of being born here, by people who oppressed others to get the money, but not the blame ideology, which is stupid if I have to be honest....It is just weird to read some of the comments like "Europe dont owe these people anything" or other comments alike.

Why does Morocco not try to give them a reason to stay in Morocco? These people are seeking better lives, why not offer a safe and stable low income job in Morocco that beats starvation and war in their home country. These people aren't asking for much, they just want lives.

I don't care what your age / gender is. If you're willing to risk your life crossing boarders, You should be willing to risk your life staying home and fighting the terror and authoritarian groups. These people are cowards and are manipulating the "crisis" in their homelands to come to our countries and manipulate the welfare system. There should be a strict no refugee policy for people who do this, and illegal boarder crossing should be punishable by death. In a few months the migrant crisis ill be over thanks to this deterrence. For anyone that will say that not all of the refugees will manipulate the system, and some of them will be productive. There are too many that do manipulate welfare. Those people greatly outnumber the ones that won't.

That wall needs to be 20 feet higher. European and North American countries have a right to strong borders and strong national identities. The fence jumpers aren't families fleeing violence, they are almost exclusively young men fleeing the their countries and leaving behind women and children to become the playthings of evil men. They need to accept responsibility, be good men and go back home to fix their failed states and protect the vulnerable members of their societies. The dude with the scars is having the adventure of a lifetime while his mother, younger siblings, and cousins are probably living in hell on earth. He needs to go back and use his strength to fix his country rather than get into one of ours. Similarly, men in North America and Europe need to stand up to bullies who don't see this for what it is and want to silence their opposition by accusing them of having hatred in their heart when in reality their hearts are full of love for their country and their people. We must stand up and fight for our future. Otherwise our societies too will decay into failed states.

Defending your border is not dirty work. The immigrants deserve a good future but not in the expense of the welfare nation. Europe has become really specialized so integrating people into the continent (most immigrants will only go to few developed European countries like Britain, France etc) has become hard. They tried being polite but when it doesn't work then you have to use violence. Stop using baby photos to justify it. I'm a human and also the ones doing policies for immigration, we understand suffering. When people tried to send birth control methods to some African countries in crisis, everybody started raising war flags. Overpopulation in these countries isn't or crises isn't European countries fault. *Colonialism* is true so does medicinal and technological developments made by European scientists.

People kept blaming colonialism. So it happened already. And it happened in my country Malaysia and the neighbors in Southeast Asia. Its already the past, so rebuild again. Everyone rebuilt the whole nation and toppled a corrupt government. If your current government can't even take care of you, then topple them for good or be that force for change. Running away means you allowed them to stay in power and step on you.
