EC proposes new European document for migrant repatriations

40% of expulsion orders fell thru due to lack of valid document

(see related)(ANSA) - Brussels, December 15 - The European Commission on Tuesday proposed introducing a new European travel document to facilitate repatriation of illegal migrants. The new document will have a uniform European format and will be valid for one trip only. Some half million expulsion orders are issued every year in Europe, but just 40% were carried out in 2014 due to lack of valid documents for those to be repatriated.
