Footage of migrants scaling Melila fence goes viral in US with misleading captions

According to a fact check by the Associated Press, video showing migrants climbing a fence between Morocco and Melilla was mistakenly claimed to be an attack on the southern border of the United States with Mexico.

In the footage, refugees may be seen attempting to reach Melilla in March 2022. The video shows a sizable crowd of individuals climbing a wall.

Many users who saw the video on social media conjectured that it showed migrants attempting to enter the United States through the southern border.

Users reposted the same video along with photographs of Vice President Kamala Harris and the hashtag “Bidens America.” The user who shared the video did so with the words “Mexico US Border.”
