The Refugee Flow Has Doubled in the Last Month

There is a two times increase in detained migrants at the state border in March compared to February this year, according to the MIA data.

A total of 175 people without registration were detained at the entrance, exit and inside the country. In the first two weeks of April, there is also an increasing flow of people. Although there is an increase, the data show that there is still no talk of pressure as it did in 2015 and 2016 at the same time.

Since the beginning of 2018, 356 people have been arrested, and for the same period in 2017, they were over 700. The State Agency for Refugees reports that more than 80 people have applied for refugee status. The agency has provided it to 8 people. In 2017, the EU sheltered more than 538,000 refugees, with 60% of the shelters granted by Germany. The number of refugees is lower by about a quarter compared to 2016. There were 24 000 migrants in the European Commission's quota.
