Algeria: Forced to leave: Stories of injustice against migrants in Algeria
Over the past two decades Algeria has become a country of transit or final destination of many nationals from West and Central Africa looking for employment opportunities in a variety of sectors, mainly construction and agriculture. Yet despite the large number of Sub-Saharan migrants, asylum seekers and refugees in the country, Algeria still lacks a clear legal framework for migrant workers and has a law criminalizing irregular migration making it an offence punishable by up to five years in prison. Sub-Saharan migrants shared their stories with Amnesty International. Their experiences illustrate the injustice when they are confronted to forcible expulsions regardless of their migration status.
