Illegal migration prevention up 40% yr/yr in 2005

Hungarian border guards prevented 40% more illegal migration attempts in 2005 compared to the previous year, the head of the border authority told the press on Tuesday. The 18,294 illegal migration attempts represented 44 % of all illegal border violations last year, József Bendek said. 96 % of detainees entered Hungary with legal documents but attempted to leave for Western Europe with counterfeit passports, visas, residence permits -- or they were concealed in vehicles crossing the border. 35 % of illegal migration attempts were committed at the Romanian border and 30 % at the Austrian border, Bendek said.
