ATHENS, Greece — France's interior minister is in Greece for talks on the country's illegal immigrant trafficking crisis.
Hortefeux met Greek Public Order Minister Christos Papoutsis Thursday
morning, as Athens seeks assistance from other European Union countries
in dealing with illegal immigration.
Greece is the EU's busiest
transit point for illegal immigration, with figures showing about 90
percent of immigrants caught entering the bloc illegally are caught in
Greece. The country is planning to build a fence along a section of its
northeastern border with Turkey to try to combat the problem.
