We publish the Southern Border 2020 report ‘Seeking a Way Out’

We publish the Southern Border report 2020, Seeking a Way Out, in which we launch a series of proposals to the Administration to comply with human rights at the southern border.

This third publication on the area of ‘Southern Border’ includes the work of accompanying the migrant population and observing Human Rights that the organisation carries out from the Melilla office, it also analyses the social and legal consequences that the tightening of migratory control has on those who seek a way out of their transit through the city.

The report is structured around seven essential issues to understand the border context: among them, the drama of those who risk their lives to seek asylum; the lack of guarantees in the return procedures; the Supreme Court ruling that guarantees the right to free movement of asylum seekers from Ceuta and Melilla; the problem of considering victims of trafficking as criminals; the dramas of young people who go from sheltered centres to street situations; family separation due to disproportionate zeal; and the measures in the context of a pandemic that aggravate the situation of migrants.

‘Seeking a Way Out’ continues and expands the library of reports on Southern Border that SJM publishes biannually, documents that have been drawing the path of the migratory reality in Melilla in search of a humane and safe migration policy.
