The Croatian government is building a fence along a part of its border with Serbia to stop nonwhite invaders still trying to reach Western Europe, local media have reported.
The fence was started after Serbian authorities said that about 700 invaders were crossing the border every day.
The mess left at the Croatian border last year during the mass invasion of July 2015.
The border is being erected along the Batina crossing, near where the borders of Croatia, Serbia, and Hungary come together.
The invaders have started heading for Croatia after Hungary again tightened controls at its border with Serbia, which it fenced off in September.
In February this year, all Balkan countries north of Greece stopped allowing the invaders through, leaving thousands backed up and faced with the choice of giving up or trying to sneak through.
Recently, pro-invasion organizations estimated that between 200 and 600 invaders are still currently getting through on the so-called “Balkan route,” mostly by bypassing Hungarian border patrols.
Meanwhile, even though the number of invaders entering Europe through the Balkans has dropped significantly, the invasion across the Mediterranean Sea from Africa is now at the same levels as last year.
According to the European Union border control agency Frontex director, Fabrice Leggeri, at least 60,000 invaders have arrived along the “central Mediterranean” route since the start of 2016.
Speaking in an interview with the French newspaper Le Figaro, Leggeri said that “new routes have also been created from Egypt and residual arrivals from Turkey,” but that 85 percent of the cross-Mediterranean invaders were coming from Libya.
He said that while most of the invaders trying to get into Europe via Turkey came from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Bangladesh, and Pakistan, many of those seeking to reach Europe from Libya are from Eritrea, Somalia, and Sudan as well as Senegal, Ivory Coast, and Gambia.
