Some 36,000 “illegal immigrants” have been caught crossing into Greece via its land border with Turkey, according to figures made public on Friday, October 7.
This compares to a total of just over 47,000 arrests during the whole of last year.
Greece is in the process of building a 12.5-kilometer fence in Evros, which is one of the main points of entry for “illegal migrants”.
