Greece Erects Huge Concrete Blocks to Stop Illegal Migrant Wave from Turkey
A wave of migrants desperate to cross the border has resulted in chaos, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic. In an attempt to stop the thousands of people from crossing the border illegally, a “militarized response” is necessary. If you thought this information was in regard to the United States’ border with Mexico, think again. Citizen Free Press details the gruesome situation occurring at the Greece-Turkey border, and likens it to “war zones akin to WWI trenches and fortifications.”
The likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or Nancy Pelosi would describe the United States’ border as equally chaotic and vitriolic as Greece and Turkey in order to rile up the liberal voting population, but they would be wrong. If the United States truly did take measures that Greece’s military has now resorted to, the world would be up in arms as we are held to a higher ethical standard.
Greece’s border is facing “desperate asylum seekers…resulting in continued chaos” forcing Greece’s militarized response which included “erecting huge concrete blocks at key land crossings” reports Citizen Free Press. Much of the chaos is a result of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan admitted he ‘opened the gates’ on “hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees from Idlib seeking entry into Europe” as “retribution aimed at uncooperative EU states.”
