“Turkey’s actions to open its borders and allow the unmitigated flow of refugees to Greece in disproportionate numbers is creating an untenable situation and must be immediately stopped. Greeks, known for their filoxenia, have shown incredible compassion
and humanity for refugees throughout history and more recently with those fleeing war and tyranny. However, when Greece’s very own security is threatened, it has no choice but to say enough is enough! The EU must provide immediate border security to stop the influx of refugees and an infrastructure to immediately process refugees currently languishing in camps within Greece. For the stability of the region and with respect to fundamental principles of fairness, these refugees must be fairly managed. I know the Trump Administration will stand with Greece and help restore order to ensure Greece’s sovereignty,” said Congressman Gus Bilirakis.
