The growing problem of illegal immigration in the EU

Question for written answer  E-000851/2022/rev.1
to the Commission
Rule 138
Jean-Paul Garraud (ID)

The links between illegal immigration, organised crime and terrorism pose a serious threat to Member States’ internal security.

Moreover, illegal immigration has become an increasingly pressing issue. Individuals who commit offences in the EU include those who:

cross EU borders using false identity documents;

remain in the EU even though the relevant permit (e.g. visa or work permit) has expired, or despite the fact they have been ordered to leave;

entered the EU on the basis of a fraudulent application for a visa, a work permit or refugee status;

reside in the EU as a result of a sham marriage, a course of study that they are not actually following or an illegal adoption;

are victims of human trafficking.
