Lighting Yourself On Fire Cuts No Ice With Greece

When Greece decided to close its borders and deport illegal immigrants, two refugees protested by setting themselves on fire. Greece isn't budging and has no intention to change its plans.

The migrant situation in Greece has gotten ugly. The United Nations accused Greece of turning migrant centers into 'detention centers,' with refugees trapped in muddy makeshift camps. The refugee center has withdrawn from activities from a system they see as 'unfair and inhumane,' according to Marie Elisabeth Ingres, the agency's head of mission in Greece.

From another point of view, it's as though Greece is under attack. Thousands of illegal refugees are swarming the borders seeking asylum. The country can't keep up, and residents are feeling more and more threatened by the incoming immigrants.

"We are in danger, every day, every minute. We need someone to protect us. They come into our houses. I want to go to work, but I can’t. Our children want to go to school, but they can’t. They have stolen our lives,” reports Breitbart.

A new EU-Turkey deal will work on deporting asylum seekers who are found to have falsified their refugee status. Greece, worried about its own people, is denying benefits to illegal refugees.

In protest, refugees have been destroying their own camps and belongings. A number of sit-in protests have been organized. The most extreme action was taken by two migrants who splashed themselves with gasoline and lit themselves on fire.

Despite the UN's horror, Greece is refusing to cave and is sticking to the deal. They’re in self-preservation mode now, as the refugee situation has the country teetering on the brink of destruction.
