Discretion Without Bounds

The Arbitrary Application of Spanish Immigration Law

Legacy PDF:

The Human Rights Watch report, "Discretion Without Bounds: The Arbitrary Implementation of Spanish Immigration Law," criticizes the Spanish authorities' uncoordinated and ad hoc application of Spanish Law 8/2000. The report criticizes the arbitrary treatment of migrants and asylum seekers in Spain-in airports, in Madrid, along the Andalucian coast, in the two Spanish cities in North Africa (Ceuta and Melilla), and in the Canary Islands.
