NEA VYSSA, Greece (AP) -- Border police jeeps hurtle along hot, dusty tracks past potato fields on their way to the river that marks the Greek-Turkish border. Sirens blaring, the convoys have been repelling wave after wave of migrants.
In Athens, the operation is being bolstered by mass roundups of suspected illegal immigrants. They are seen lined up on the streets of the capital every day, many in handcuffs, waiting to be put in detention until they can be deported. In the first week of the crackdown in early August, police said they apprehended nearly 7,000 people for identification checks; nearly 1,700 were slated for deportation.

Sounds like a plan!
Where are all the libs saying we should be more like Europe?
I forgot to add: hat tip to DrudgeReport.com
Look for unrest to increase in Muslim countries as their emigrants are forced to return to their jobless homelands. .......................................................... LOL, this administration will take them in as political refugees and new voters.
Very good. At least one country is starting to resist the Third World invasion.
Free stuff. And Amnesty international thinks the Greek people should keep footing the bill. Isn’t that special of them?
The Greeks then get to send home US dollars; Greek's role in the EuroZone is saved; and the US doesn't have to support leeches. Win, win, win.
This is true for all civilized nations.
Socialists slackards in Greece at least recognize the need for border control. Unlike their U.S. counterparts.
Where are most of their immigrants from?
The Greek culture's in a state of slow suicide - they're not having enough children to replace themselves. There's a liberal focus is on living the 'good life' - translated as an extended adolescence of holidays and selfishness...
In 200 years there won't be enough 'Greeks' to sustain the language - and the land we call Greece will be a Muslim country with a Muslim population.
The 'if it feels good, do it' mantra of the liberal elite has consequences... bad, bad consequences.
‘One small step for Man...’
Sounds like the “Coming Attractions” for the U.S.A.
How bad are things in Turkey when they are still trying to swarm across the border to a bankrupt Greece teetering on the brink of collapse?
"While Greece has the right to control migration, it does not have the right to treat people like criminals purely because of the color of their skin," Amnesty's Jezerca Tigani said in a statement.
Words fail me ...
The low-skill immigrants sucking up welfare appear to mostly be Muslims from Turkey, or other places who arrived via Turkey.
I hope Greece tells them to shove it.
we should do the same, they are here illegaly, they broke the law and showed no respect plus they drain the economy with free education, health care etc.
I’mfed up of hearing that illegals pay taxes too.
hey do not, I got to know quite a few ilegals while I was up north and not one of them ever paid any tax, they got paid cash but boy did they use the health care and education system for their kids.
