German Police Caught Thousands of Migrants Using Fake IDs To Enter Europe Last Year

by A.P.

More than 8,000 migrants carrying false identification were caught trying to fly to European destinations from airports in Greece last year, according to reports.

German police say they intercepted over 8,500 people at Greek airports attempting to use fake passports and E.U. identity cards, more than 5,000 of whom were on their way to Germany.

Citing figures provided by German authorities, Berliner Morgenpost reports that a handful of officers stationed primarily at airports in Athens and Thessaloniki encountered thousands of illegal migrants hoping to make their way deeper into Europe during 2020.

“The Federal Police, in cooperation with Greek officials, stopped more than 5,200 people at Greek airports before their illegal departure for Germany last year, including illegal migrants who wanted to travel with the help of smuggling networks,” the Morgenpost reports.
