Greece Boots 10,000 Unlawful Migrants

10D80A86E5D39ADBD906B9E3CC08CE16Almost 600 illegal immigrants returned to their home countries in May, while since last August a total of 10,118 people of different nationalities have returned to their countries.
According to the Hellenic Police data, reimbursement decisions were based on the cost of keeping or expelling them.
The return to their home countries was mainly realized with commercial flights from the Athens International Airport, Eleftherios Venizelos. The cost was covered by the European Return Fund, and national resources as well. The foreigners who were relocated to their home countries in May, mostly originated  from Pakistan and Albania.
There was a significant reduction in the number of undocumented migrants detected crossing into Greece in the northeastern Evros region the last few months of 2012 after a substantial increase in the number of border guards, the European Commission said on June 3 in its biannual report on the free movement of people within the Schengen area.
