Latvia has joined Estonia and Lithuania in tightening ID controls and erecting fences on their eastern borders, worried the Baltic region will become a new entry point for Muslim freeloaders, rapists, and jihadists posing as refugees as migrant routes through the Balkans become harder.
UK Express Latvia has completed the first stages of protecting EU borders after erecting a 14-mile fence along the Russian border to stop illegal migrants entering the European Union. The Baltic state is set to add another 37 miles this year, the country’s State Border Guard spokeswoman Jevgenija Poznaka confirmed. He said: “The construction was started back in 2015, and we are planning to finish it by 2019. Forty miles of the border zone was built up, and the 14-mile fence was constructed.”
