Migrant Camps in Greece,Italy Are Overcrowded; Camps Designed to Process 8K People, Hold 16K

European Commission auditors say that the migrant registration centers in Greece and Italy are overcrowded and urgently require more experts -- particularly to help children -- the Greek Reporter website reports today (April 25, 2017).

The auditors say that two more registration centers are needed to process migrants arriving in Italy and that facilities on the five Greek islands that receive asylum seekers from Turkey must be improved.

"There are still more migrants arriving at the hotspots [registration centers] than leaving, and they are seriously overcrowded," the auditors said.

They added that hotspots in Greece and Italy are designed to process about 8,000 people, but are routinely dealing with 15,000--16,000 migrants.
