Funding for migrants to return home

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Citizens’ Protection Ministry announced a new program aimed at returning 7,000 undocumented immigrants to their homelands as part of a voluntary repatriation scheme being financed with 7.5 million euros from the European Union and 2.5 million euros in state cash.The program forms part of a “broader national plan aimed at managing immigration flows”, according to the ministry, which has also stepped up deportations of undocumented immigrants in recent weeks.The new program is the latest in a series of voluntary repatriation schemes that have been coordinated by the Greek office of the International Organization for Migration (IOM), which cites a 50 percent increase in applications by migrants. But according to the director of the IOM’s Athens office, Daniel Esdras, bureaucracy has delayed implementation.A total of 2,258 migrants have been voluntarily returned to their homelands since March 2010. This is less than half the number of those who have lodged applications. Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

Hopes to improve their return game Its huge A

first_imgHopes to improve their return game“It’s huge. Any time your starting field position is behind the 20 or 25 or lower, you’re not doing real good in your return game. The more you can get first downs in your return game the better off you are.”How much freedom will you give Ted Ginn Jr. on returning kicks “We’ll have design plays. He doesn’t have any freedom just to catch it and run. (Run) where you’re supposed to run, where your blockers are. As far as bringing it out (of the end zone), it’s the depth and heighth of the kick. You just got to have a good feel for it. We didn’t do a very good job of deciding those things last year.” “It was an excellent practice [Tuesday]. One thing I’m very enthused about is, I think, offensively we ran the ball fairly well at times. Any time we can run the ball fairly well against our defense, that’s saying a lot being that we’re outstanding against the run. That speaks volume for the offensive line and the backs and tight ends, especially the tight ends. Darren Fells really got my attention [Tuesday] for the first time; saw him rock some heads back blocking. For a basketball player, that’s a huge step forward.”How is the competition going at back-up running back“We have all of the confidence in the world in Stepfan [Taylor] and Jonathan [Dwyer]. Jonathan had a big, long run [Tuesday] and Steph did an unbelievable job in pass protection. It’s an on-going thing, and we’ll use them both. We really won’t have a ‘2′ and a ‘3′. They’ll have roles and go into the games with roles so that everybody knows exactly what to expect; and then of course when your number is called to increase your role, you better be ready.”The league experimenting with 15-yard extra points“It’ll be fun. Originally, it was 20 and then outdoor teams wanted to move it up to 15. I think it’ll add a little bit of excitement to the play. Game-winner will be a whole lot more gritting of the teeth over there (on the sidelines) I know that.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo GLENDALE, Ariz. – Head coach Bruce Arians, now in his second year with the Arizona Cardinals, meets the media each day during training camp.Here, in this space, we’ll highlight many of the key topics and personnel conversations he has with reporters following the morning walk-through:“Nothing new really injury-front wise. We came out pretty clean [Tuesday]. Lorenzo Alexander has a scheduled day off on his foot so we get back-to-back rest days for him. Everybody else is good to go (mentioned Andre Ellington and Dan Williams will return to practice Friday).
