Τhe greek government plans on building a fence in evros, to stop the flows of migrants Christos Papoutsis (ministry of public order) revealed during an interview at Athenian-macedonian news agency.

We have a complete plan that we are implementing in these days. Such as the cooperation with the European Agency Frontex. We are also planning on upgrading the hellinic coast guard and building a fence on the border lands to discourage migrants from coming to greece” said the minister.

A similar fence has been set up in the USA on the borders with Mexico, while a fence is under construction which will divide Israel from Egypt.
Christos Papoutsis estimated that 200-250 persons cross evros on a daiy basis, searching for a better chance in Europe. In the first semester 2010, the number of migrants arrested on the greek turkish borders has increased up to 372%. To 31.219 from 6.615 at the same period last year.
This dramatic increase is due to the best patrol of the sea borders by Frontex.
