On 1609 Spain ordered the expulsion of the Moriscos, the descendants of Spanish Muslims who were force-converted to Christianity in 1502. Presumably many of them went to the Muslim lands in North Africa. How were they received there? Since it was more than a century after the 1502 conversion, these Moriscos must not have beem the original converts, but rather their descendants who were born and educated as Christians. According to the Wikipedia articles, there expelled Moriscos numbered about 300,000.
How did the destination countries receive such a large number of people? From their point of view, not only the Moriscos are Christian, they are also foreigners from a country they're at war with. Did those countries welcome them? Were they treated differently from the native citizens, like as something like immigrants or refugees today? Did they convert to Islam and if so how easy/forced was the conversion?
