The BBC reports that hundreds of migrants, mostly Moroccan, have been evicted from a dock at the Arguineguín port in Gran Canaria. Officials removed these migrants without a resettlement plan, leaving many to just wander in search of food and shelter.

If you check out the map on the right, you can see the geographic appeal of the Canary Islands. At their nearest point, the islands are just 62 miles from Morocco. Also, the islands are a part of Spain. Migrants hope to parlay their landing at this port to a future in the EU.
