Because if your skin is brown, you don’t have to care about immigrants.
Moroccan authorities expelled two Amnesty International researchers they said were in the country without permission to study the treatment of migrants and asylum-seekers, the Interior Ministry said on Thursday.
A ministry statement said Morocco had asked the human rights organisation to postpone the research until both parties had agreed to it.
“The Amnesty International team was expelled despite having informed authorities of their planned visit,” the organization said in a statement to Reuters.
Amnesty said it had received written and verbal assurances that it could visit the country without being required to obtain prior authorization.
Police questioned the two researchers separately at police stations in Rabat and Oujda, before they were put on separate flights to London and Paris.
“The decision to expel our staff from Morocco as they began their investigations into the human rights situation of migrants and refugees raises serious suspicions that the authorities have something to hide,” Amnesty said.
Morocco has repeatedly expelled Blacks from the country. There are significantly less Blacks in Marrakesh or Casablanca than there are in London or Paris.
