700 Migrants Rush at Spain’s Border, 140 Breach It

Harold Heckle and Fernando Garcia, Yahoo! News, May 1, 2014

Around 700 African migrants charged Spain’s barbed-wire border fences Thursday in the country’s North African enclave of Melilla, clashing with Spanish and Moroccan border police.

Spain said 140 of the migrants managed to enter Spanish territory despite the efforts of the border police.


It was the latest surge in the tide of African immigrants trying to cross into Europe. Spain’s two North African enclaves of Melilla and Ceuta are particularly vulnerable and have had repeated attacks by hundreds of immigrants this spring.


By afternoon, more than 150 people remained perched on an outside border fence, fending off police by setting fire to clothing and throwing it at them, Spanish officials said. Some even swung batons wrenched away from officers.


Police used pepper spray to try to force migrants down from the 20-foot (6-meter) -high fence, but some climbed onto the lamp posts used to illuminate the border.

The Interior Ministry statement said some migrants were treated by Red Cross staff and five were taken to the hospital. It later said 12 police were injured.

    They need German Shepherds and fire hoses.

    • Who Me?

      They need automatic weapons and a tank for burying the bodies.

    • italian guy

      They need to put job applications all over the border, none of them will get near it…

    • bilderbuster

      You don’t have to feed an electric fence like you do with dogs.
      It only needs juice.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      “Bull” Connor had the right idea when it came to dealing with negroes. Don’t forget the billy clubs.

    • Erasmus

      They need to learn how to shoot to kill.
      Sounds harsh? Perhaps. But that IS what it will come down to. Better to be prepared than not prepared.

  • DaveMed

    Waiting for someone to post the “Here comes the diversity… you are about to be culturally enriched” meme.

    I have to say, it’s completely warranted in response to such a story.

    • Oil Can Harry

      Camp of the Saints?

      Or Planet of the Apes?

      • DaveMed

        It’s an unfortunate trend. I read on several sites that there are 800,000 “migrants” planning to cross from North Africa to Malta.

        Frightening. I’ll send JT the link.

  • Someone on a bullhorn needs to remind those Negroes that lamp posts are traditionally used for hanging criminals. “Attention Negroes, we’ve sent our man to get ropes, one for each of you. Disperse now!”

    • bilderbuster

      When I first glanced at that photo I became giddy for a moment as I was under the impression that the Spaniards had taken up the old tradition of impaling invaders.
      Alas it was just another photo of a Negro where he doesn’t belong.

      • saxonsun

        We need the great Romanian hero, Vlad the Impaler now. He impaled an entire invading Turkish army.

  • Truthseeker

    Let’s call this what it is: an invasion.

  • wildfirexx

    Old Spanish President Franco…would have never put up with this BS!
    Send them back to their homeland in Boxcars. Europe owes them nothing!

    • bilderbuster

      Pine boxes are less expensive.

      • wildfirexx

        Actually a better option would be to electrify the fence and barbed wire, to keep them out!

        • bilderbuster

          I agree as you need not use either if they can’t get in to begin with.
          See my response to Luca above.

        • Jon Doe

          Automated ADS system, low frequency microwave the cockroaches as soon as they are in a 200 yard radius. Safe non-lethal, deterrent, clean hands. They will feel the heat and scatter back into the sewers from which they came. Electric fences are easy to short circuit, all you need is one broken link and the whole system is down. This is the only humane option

  • hastings88

    Why don’t the Spanish just immediately tie them up and drop them back over the fence?

  • Greg Thomas

    God…would you want those things in your country!

  • Petronius

    Where is Torquemada when we really need him?

    Yes, NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition! And this time there’ll be no soft cushions. No Comfy Chair.

    • ShermanTMcCoy

      How about “The Rrrrrrrrack?”

    • saxonsun

      An interesting fact is that Torquemada was a converted Jew.

  • Daniel Schmuhl

    They should get electric fences and if that doesn’t do the trick open fire.

  • MBlanc46

    That’s an invasion. It should be met with lethal force.

    • WR_the_realist

      We’ve never used lethal force against the Mexican invasion. Our reward for our forbearance is that we will soon be outnumbered by Hispanics.

  • A few burning corpses, and some scattered dead bodies near the border fence, is all it will take to dissuade the African savages from invading Spain. But that’s much too brutal for the citizens of politically-correct Spain. They’d rather have their country destroyed from within by the presence of hordes of North Africans on their streets. At least they wouldn’t be seen as ‘racist’ – the greatest fear among whites!

  • No one in “polite society” ever thinks of suggesting that perhaps Africans (and Asians, and Latin Americans) should consider having fewer than 12 children per mother. Certainly no one dares suggest that people shouldn’t have more children than they can support. That would be heresy. Anyway, everyone knows all they have to do is “migrate” to White countries where they can get freebies for life.

  • Terrible. There is seemingly no end to this. Lower down in the comments somebody is mentioning a story that claims 800,000 are due to flock to Italy. In the case of the above picture, the only thing stopping them is pepper spray and a rickety 6ft high wire mesh.

    Seeing as Spain is still high in the unemployment stakes, maybe they should create thousands of jobs to build a proper concrete, anti-scaling, fort wall that is at least 24 foot high, and a trench in the ground another 20 feet deep each side of it.

    I am sure “Frontex”, the EU “border force” will be all too happy to lend a hand…… oh wait, no they won’t. Nobody will help. Nobody will support. Collective will and a stand is needed to finally and vociferously stop this happening and ensure the 800,000 never make it.

    Enough is enough! I wish there was something we could collectively do to really ram that door shut once and for all from these people. Those in the picture are not just going to go “okay, I’m going to travel all the way back home now”. They will gain entry one way or another, and when they do, more are encouraged.

    To liberals it all sounds mean spirited of course, but for goodness sake, we are being wiped out and you CANNOT solve the problems of the third world by MOVING the third world into Europe! Particularly when that third world full of sob-stories is due to DOUBLE in numbers to something like 2 BILLION by around mid-century.

    It is madness. Utter madness. We need an iron fist, not amnesty, red-cross, welfare, ramshackle police efforts and zero backbone from the establishment.

    • Pro_Whitey

      The Israelis have shown how it’s done. Build a double layered fence system with a road in between the fences to promote quick movement of patrols to places where they cross. And they reject most refugee claims.

      • Yup. I hear they also lock them up and then fly them out on planes with no appeal…..like Saudi Arabia too.

        It is terrible for the Spanish, but I suspect that around 600 of the 700 will end up in England, Ireland, or any other Western European nation that is fluent in English and as lenient.

        With the way the economy is in Spain, they are not going to have as much to milk from the cow.

        • Avi Marranazo

          Agreed, Nick Griffin got it right in talking about how to handle those invaders coming by sea: “sink their boats, throw them life rafts and tow them back to their port of origin”. I dare say if the Spanish military were to open fire just once, that would be the end of these games they’re playing with us.

          At the end of the day the question is do Europeans want to continue to be a distinct people?

    • Malgus


      They remind me of Starlings. The US never had any starlings, ever. Then some halfwit released a couple dozen in NY Central Park. Just a couple dozen.

      Now? Now the US has about a quarter BILLION of them. I’m not kidding. Inbred swine. They’re nasty. They swarm an area, displace the nicer, more colorful songbirds. More than that, they wait till the songbirds have built their nests, then show up, boot them out and take over the nest. They are a plague.

      They show up in their thousands and just make a hash of everything – if it’s edible, they’ll eat it. Afterwards, their droppings cover everything. They steal food meant for other animals, leaving a nice “blop” of bird poop as a thank you, adding insult to injury. It’s disgusting and infuriating. When they gather in numbers, it gets very noisy, very quickly.

      Showing up in overwhelming numbers, consuming everything, producing nothing, destroying the place, leaving excrement all over, stealing what belongs to others, noisy, displacing the indigenous population?

      Wait… Are we still talking about Starlings?

      • We have our own invasions of alien species going on here….. We have a starling problem of our own, that’s for sure.

        However, in terms of other more natural wildlife…… that is another disaster stemming from international trades, international travel, mail orders, free movements of people….

        In Britain, we have had clowns releasing exotic snakes, poisonous spiders (which were once pets), people bringing in from foreign places vicious bed bugs, we have had Japanese knotweed plants taking over whole swathes of areas and snuffing out the other natural plants, importation of diseases in trees, and so on.

        The grey squirrel problem is perhaps the most notorious, but like with the Starlings, we look to have a variety of things to be contending with in the future, that should not be here and will be extremely hard to remove…..

        I am still talking about the wildlife…..of course…..

        • Malgus


          I hear ya, brother.. invasive species are a disaster.

          Anecdotally, you are familiar with the near-extinction of the American Chestnut tree? That old Christmas song “Chestnuts roasting over and open fire..”… I have never tasted one. Used to be, in my father’s time, TRAINLOADS of chestnuts would be sent north to places like NYC, offloaded and then sold to the locals by pushcarts… they’d roast them on the spot and sell them in paper bags…

          Then, again, some halfwit brought ONE Chinese Chestnut to the gardens in NYC. It carried what became to be known as “The Chestnut blight”. The blight broke containment and advanced 50 miles a year, killing chestnut trees that had stood for centuries. Nothing we did could stop it. Culling the infected trees did nothing. Burning or cutting down vast swathes of trees as a ‘firebreak’ did nothing… eventually, it was estimated that 1.5 BILLION (with a “B”) American Chestnut trees died. It was the greatest biological disaster in North America in the 20th century.

          It’s still hanging on… barely. 40 years ago, one man started backbreeding a surviving American Chestnut with it’s chinese counterpart… we now have a strain that is 15/16ths American Chestnut and, hopefully, blight resistant…

          The Law of Unintended Consequences… the actions of ONE MAN resulted in the deaths of one and a half billion trees…

          As far as Starlings are concerned, we own a farm. Our Commonwealth has no problem with the shooting of starlings by citizens – there is no “open season” on starlings, since technically it never closes. You can blast them year round. So, I shoot starlings on sight. It doesn’t really do anything meaningful, considering their numbers, but it makes me feel better decking a few of the filth. My wife crabbed that it wasted ammo, until she saw our porch covered in bird droppings… now she’s on board with it.

          By the way, BA… I got a great recipe for squirrel. Seriously. If you could convince folks to start eating gray squirrel, your problems would be over…

  • Disgusting . . . nothing but problems for caucasians with the seething tide of blackness.

  • T_Losan

    Can anyone explain what they are achieving by breaking into a Spanish enclave on the African continent? It’s not like they can disappear into the local population or cross a bridge over to mainland Spain. Do they then appeal for asylum or what?

    • evilsandmich

      Do they then appeal for asylum or what?

      Yes. Obviously if they’re being that ‘big hearted’ then there should be no need for the fence, but they’re not, but big government idiocy being what it is…

  • Truth Teller

    Luca, better yet Cana Corsos a special Spanish mastiff werewolf vicious monster type dog and flame throwers. Or perhaps lions and tigers from the zoos.

    At least the Spanish govt, unlike our traitors has a functional border patrol that is actually allowed to “repel boarders” and invaders.

  • Truth Teller

    Buffcreek They would just eat the burning corpses and keep going for da wefa benf

  • kikz2

    where’s their military?????

    • Avi Marranazo

      On “peacekeeping missions” defending “human rights” in the Third World.

      • kikz2

        sadly, you’re probably correct… much like the US Natl. Guard is anywhere other than guarding borders in the US.

  • Avi Marranazo

    When will they open fire? That would doubtless put an end to the invaders’ taunting the police.

  • DudeWheresMyCountry?

    Spain needs another El Cid.
