Switzerland. Canton Ticino. Chiasso. Railway station. Nicola Rizzi (R) and his colleague(L), both border guards, are checking the identity cards from passengers on an intercity train arriving from Italy. About 90 per cent of illegal immigrants who want to get into Switzerland try their chance by train. No specific measures are yet planned by the border guards, but an emergency, reinforcements from other parts of Switzerland is dispatched in Ticino as prevention to a potential massive arrival of economic migrants. 08.04.11 © 2011 Didier Ruef
