Greeks Strengthen Border Wall Guard to Fight Afghan Migrant Crisis

Breitbart:

THESSALONIKI, Greece (AP) – Greece will increase the number of border guards on the country’s border with Turkey, fearing a spike in illegal migration linked to the crisis in Afghanistan, officials said Monday.

An additional 250 officers will join the 1,500-strong border force over several months, with the number rising from around 1,000 early last year. About 800 extra border guard personnel will also be hired to staff airports and regions close to the Greek-Turkish border.

The increase was spurred in part by the Taliban takeover in Afghanistan, according to authorities. Greece has toughened its migration policy and border policing over the last two years, extending a wall along its land border with Turkey and installing a high-tech surveillance network to try and deter asylum-seekers from making the crossing.

Greece has denied mounting allegations by human rights groups that migrants caught after crossing into Greece are being summarily deported without being allowed to claim asylum.

In parliament Monday, Greek Migration Minister Notis Mitarachi said a growing number of front-line countries in the 27-nation European Union were pressing the European Commission, the EU’s executive branch, for tougher action to deter migration.

“Europe is not bordered by warring countries. And the majority of people arriving are not at risk in the last transit country, so it´s important to redefine how (migration policy) works and how border security works,” Mitarachi said. more

  1. So what happens when “migrant groups” show up an the border in American MRAPS with American .50 guns, American rocket pods, covered by American drones?

    Wonder if they’re beefed up enough for that…

  2. Summarily deporting is not a humanitarian crisis. Summarily executing invaders might be, but it depends…
    Summarily executing so called human rights groups….

  3. We house them on our military bases, where we feed and clothe them until they are discreetly released into the general population, or they simply wander off when they get the notion. Maybe that spastic chick in the frock yesterday has a point.

    WHY IS THE US THE ONLY COUNTRY THAT MUST ACCEPT ‘ASYLUM SEEKERS’??
    Joe biden* and the US Senate treat our country like it’s a landfill !

    Maybe we should RECYCLE. iow, give each ‘migrant’ a new hat (that says MAGA) and send them home. To their home.

  5. Are the Greek ROIs short and simple? As in, “ONE VERBAL WARNING TO STOP AND TURN AROUND. IF THEY KEEP COMING, SHOOT TO KILL. NO! AND I SAY AGAIN, NO! WARNING SHOTS! THAT IS ALL.”
