Thousands of Moroccans Swim to Spanish Territory

Spain is facing an immigration crisis with thousands of Moroccans swimming or using inflatables to gain access to a Spanish enclave on Morocco’s coast. Relaxed border controls have prompted the rush, authorities say. Approximately 6000 people, many teenagers, had entered into Spain this week. The immigrants entered into the Spanish City of Cueta, a Spanish territory in Morocco, which is separated from the country by a 32’ wide fence. Spain has upped their vigilance in the area to slow the tide of migrants, reports say.
