Greece wants to deport ‘troublemakers’; great, but make sure it’s out of Europe.
A recent surge in arrivals has been accompanied by rising crime, especially among rival gangs from alien and violent cultures. They are bringing their ethnic street wars with them to Europe.
This is what happens when one promotes an “ambitious EU” which discovers declarations and rights to prevent nation states from delivering swift and mass deportations outside of Europe.
– The announcement by Public Order Minister Michalis Chrisochoidis follows the recent deadly shooting of a 23-year-old Afghan man in a heated standoff with a rival Pakistani gang in central Athens.
More than 100 migrant arrests have been made in the past days in Athens alone. An additional 40 asylum seekers have been rounded up in Lesbos, the start of what authorities call sweeping operations to crack down on rival ethnic groups’ criminal activities, including sex trafficking and drug trafficking, while waiting for their asylum requests to be processed.
“For years,” Chrysochoidis said, “there was no real attempt to penalize them. They would be rounded up, detained and then released, allowing them to resume their criminal conduct while waiting for their asylums to be processed.”
* And many of them were negligently ‘waved-through’ to others in Europe. The failure to defend Europe is a stain on the EU. Ambitious “states of Europe” yes….an ambitious “federal Europe” never.
Be careful of extending powers of Brussels by increasing its insatiable thirst for power by increasing the EU budget. As the U.K. has clearly demonstrated, the EU is not Europe.
