The border patrol at Greece’s land border with Turkey (Evros) has forwarded an announcement according which the number of the illegal immigrants entering Greece through Evros has risen sharply. In October alone, approximately 10,000 illegal immigrants entered Greece.
Moreover, the border patrol blames the politicians of being tolerant with immigrants, providing residence permit to the immigrants very soon.
The border patrol workers propose that such a policy should be imposed, that will discourage illegal immigrants from entering Greece. The current policy that provides 30-days residence permit to Greece cannot contribute to the mitigation of illegal immigration.
European committees should take into account that this problem is of a European scale and not only a Greek one. Evros society is awaiting new measures that could decrease illegal immigration.
