International migration, with its complex web of economic, social, demographic, and political consequences, is a theme that dominates national and international interests. This thesis explores a connection between illegal African immigration to Spain and a recent phenomenon of Senegalese immigration to Argentina through an examination of historical trajectories of immigration, legal and illegal entries, and migration legislation. In particular the focus will be on the role of Spanish national migration law and border control as a deterrent against illegal African immigration and a resultant wave of Senegalese immigrants representing a new phenomenon of ecologically pushed migration from Sub-Saharan Africa.
