Once again, the federal police in Saxony has discovered illegally entered refugees: the 49 people, including 20 children, were probably locked in a van for several hours at high outside temperatures, as a spokesman for the Ebersbach federal police station said Wednesday. Previously, MDR Saxony online had reported on the smuggling discovered on Tuesday evening near Oberseifersdorf in the district of Goerlitz.
The migrants came from Syria and Turkey. About their state of health, the spokesman could not yet give any information. During the control of the transporter, the federal police officers arrested two suspected smugglers aged 27 and 32 years.
"Migration has been steadily increasing for months and for example on the Balkan route is smuggled a lot," said the spokesman for the federal police. Regularly informs the Federal Police about the arrest of smugglers. The CDU member of the state parliament in Bautzen, Marko Schiemann, recently spoke of a dramatic situation at the federal external border. He demanded more personnel in the fight against smugglers.
