Violent clashes erupted on the European Union’s common external border over the weekend as Greek border guards tried to stop migrants promised they could travel to Europe by the Turkish president Erdogan from entering.
In a move designed to punish the West, President of Turkey Erdogan has opened the borders, unleashing waves of tens of thousands of migrants into Greece which has gotten so bad the Greek army has been called out to deal with the mounting crisis. You will recall that Erdogan told Putin to ‘step aside‘ on Saturday, demanding that free reign be given him to control northern Syria, Putin has yet to respond to after sending warships with cruise missiles to Syrian coast on Friday.
Of course, what would a migrant mob being without setting things on fire and throwing rocks, bricks and other objects at peace keeping officers? This is what people like George Soros and Communist Bernie Sanders dream of, mobs of migrants knocking down the borders and destroying civilized society. Both Sanders and Soros are in favor of open borders. Pay attention, America, this is what we will have if we elected Comrade Sanders, mob rule.
Migrant Mobs Turn Violent at Greek Border, Army Deployed
FROM BREITBART NEWS: Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who leads the Islamist government in Ankara, told migrants the border was now open several days ago — a move widely regarded as punishment for the West’s failure to back his effective annexation of northern Syria, which has embroiled him in an increasingly deadly confrontation with the Syrian government and its backers in Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah.
The EU, including the United Kingdom, had been funnelling the Turkish government billions of euros in order to encourage Erdogan to bring the flow of migrants under a modicum of control, but he has now reneged on that deal, and they are again travelling to the frontier in their tens of thousands — many of them in unmarked buses seemingly laid on for the purpose of transporting them.
The Greek border, however, remains closed, resulting in angry confrontations between Greek personnel and migrants who believed border guards on both sides of the frontier had been stood down.
Migrants have lit fires, hurled stones, and exchanged tear gas canisters with the Greek border guards, who have had to be reinforced by military personnel, in their efforts to breach the border and reach Europe.
The Greeks have for the most part held firm, although some dozens of migrants have illegally entered the country successfully, ranging down along the border in search of weak points to ford the Evros river or destroy sections of fencing with bolt cutters.
Greek prime minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has promised that “the level of deterrence at our borders “has been increased to the maximum” and taken the extraordinary step of suspending all asylum applications.
The New York Times believes this move may have be illegal under the EU rules on asylum and immigration to which Greece is subject, but Prime Minister Mitsotakis says he has activated an emergency clause in the bloc’s treaties to “to ensure full European support”.
Whether or not this will be challenged in the Greek or EU courts by NGOs or other actors which favour open borders remains to be seen. READ MORE
Greek police fire tear gas at migrants on Turkish border
Migrants in Turkey have rushed to borders with the European Union, after Ankara signaled it was lifting crossing restrictions in a move to pressure NATO into stepping in to help in the conflict with Syria. Turkish officials say 18,000 people have crossed the border since Friday. There have been arrivals by land and by sea along borders with EU members Greece and Bulgaria. Refugee boats have arrived on Greek islands closest to the Turkish mainland, and groups of people have turned up at the land border. But both countries have boosted security at their borders with Turkey, and thousands of migrants are now stuck in no-man’s land between the two sides. Turkish officials announced they would no longer stop migrants from crossing into Europe, after dozens of Turkish troops were killed in a Syrian government airstrike in Idlib province. That prompted retaliatory strikes from Ankara against targets in Syria. Turkey’s decision to open its border has fuelled fears of a revival of the 2015 migration crisis.
Comrade Sanders says he would create path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants
Communist Bernie Sanders said that if he is elected president, he would restore legal protections for those in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, change official U.S. policy at the border, and introduce bipartisan legislation that would result in a path toward citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants. Sanders is one of the seven Democrats vying for their party’s 2020 presidential nomination who met on the stage for the sixth Democratic debate on Dec. 19, hosted by the PBS NewsHour and POLITICO.
