The number of invaders lodging “first time” asylum applications in the European Union reached 592,800 as of the end of June 2016, according to official figures released by the EU’s statistical agency Eurostat.
The invaders came from 148 different countries and less than one-third claim to be from Syria. Even that figure is doubtful, given the large number of fake Syrian passports in circulation.
