The Federal Police noticed a significant increase in unauthorized migration to Germany in the past year.
The officials registered 57,637 unauthorized entries into Germany, which is an increase of 63 percent compared to the previous year and, according to the federal police, the highest level since 2017. This is the result of the annual report of the federal police, the Interior Minister Nancy Faeser (SPD) and the Federal Police President Dieter Romann want to present this Friday in Berlin. It is available to the German Press Agency. The "Bild" newspaper also reported.
Irregular internal migration between EU countries also played a role, according to the report, especially from Greece. People recognized as refugees in Greece traveled to Germany by plane to apply for asylum again. According to the federal police, more than 100 people were found doing this on peak days.
According to the report, about half of the people who entered the country illegally and who were picked up by the federal police at the borders came from Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria.
