Brenner Pass controls ‘inevitable’ says Hofer

Far-right presidential candidate says ‘we have no choice&#

(ANSA) - Bolzano, April 26 - Controls at the Brenner Pass on the Italy-Austria border are "inevitable", Norbert Hofer of Austria's far-right and anti-immigrant Freedom Party and winner of the first round of presidential elections said Tuesday. "I am certainly not pleased, but we have no choice," Hofer said. "The external borders of the Schengen area need to be secured," he added.
    "Only 20% of people arriving in Austria are real refugees and they have already passed through safe countries," Hofer said.
