Nomina nescis in latin means "nameless" and is the term used legally on those cases in which is unknown the true identity of a body. In this case, refers to those pseudonyms used by different Governments, especially in the United States. John Doe or Jane Doe are precisely the names used by this Government, Avelino Sala uses them as credits of a cinematographic film, along with those used by other international governments. It is important to note the number of affected by migration in the world. In the case of Spain, we know the particular case of the boats that arrive at our beaches, transporting people from Africa and Asia to gain access illegally in Europe.
