Europe’s migrant crisis is barely reported now, which may make you think it is over.
True, arrival numbers are down, but, no, it’s not over:
Italy has overtaken Greece to become the country on Europe’s migration frontline, with about 750 people arriving per day, the head of the EU border control agency Frontex said on Tuesday.
Around 50 migrants per day arrive in Greece, which used to be the main point of entry for migrants.
Fabrice Leggeri said the flow of refugees had slowed since the EU-Turkey migration deal came into force, Reuters reports.
”For the first six months of 2016, there were 360,000 illegal entries in the EU, which is higher than what we saw last year, but the influx has been diminishing since April,” Leggeri said…
Frontex said more than 1.5 million people tried to reach Europe last year…
Other numbers suggest arrivals so far this year are actually down to 253,000.
