Illegal immigration in Europe
Issued on: Modified:
In Focus today we're heading to Greece for a look at how Europe is dealing with illegal immigration. An EU rapid response force was deployed at the beginning of the month along the Greek land border with Turkey. Local law enforcement officials said they were overwhelmed by an influx of illegal immigrants. More and more migrants are seen to be choosing to enter the European Union by land. This comes as EU countries are seen to be clamping down on sea crossings in the Mediterranean.
