Student Francesca Grandillo: Changing Status of Moroccan Migrants

Friday, November 14, 2014

MOROCCO WORLD NEWS -- Francesca Grandillo is an undergraduate student in her final year at San Francisco State University studying International Relations and Linguistics. She wrote an opinion article about the legalization of undocumented immigrants in Morocco.

“While Africa’s passageways of migration are more varied and numbered than any in Europe or North America could dream of, there’s an aspect to migration to which Morocco and other African countries are yet unaccustomed — legalization of illegal immigrants,” Grandillo writes. ”While attempting to garner a higher status in both European and African regional politics, there are other crucial effects of the 2014 legalization program that Morocco and its policymakers shouldn’t ignore.”
