Se duplican los cruces de migrantes a la UE por el Mediterráneo central

By Jordi Bou

June 16, 2023 - Los cruces de inmigrantes a través del Mediterráneo central hacia la Unión Europea se han más que duplicado en 2023 frente al mismo período del año pasado, dice la agencia fronteriza Frontex de la UE.

In the first five months of this year, EU countries reported more than 50,300 irregular entries through that route, “the highest number recorded since 2017,” the agency said in a statement.

The Central Mediterranean remained the main migratory route into the EU, accounting for nearly half of all the entries in 2023.

The arrivals on this route drove the raise of 12% of all entries to the EU, as arrivals on all the other migratory routes saw declines ranging from 6% on the Western Mediterranean up to 47% on the Western African route.
