Migrants often bring problems to the countries that they come to. Often unemployable, they take to welfare ,theft and other means to survive. President Trump is right when he says that A lot of illegal immigrants are problem people. Greece, like Germany, Spain and France are all dealing with a massive migrant problem. If not corrected quickly, these great countries will have an identity crisis with being over run by minorities who care little about Western European culture and mores.
It is not Europe’s problem if Middle Easterners, Africans cannot get along with one another. Europe needs to take a stand and fast. England too has had problems with both illegals and commonwealth countries. Many take advantage of the countries free programs, all the while they hate the people who provide these things that are beneficial to the immigrants.
The United States needs to also take a stand and stop the illegals from entering our country. All to often we see gangs, murders and physical attacks on our citizens. Money is repatriated out of the country which hurts our tax base. One only needs to look at San Francisco to see what a disaster illegals bring to this country. People live in squall er in the city streets their. For the good, tax paying people, this city has become a nightmare. Businesses have been hurt by homeless sleeping in front of establishments doorways, people fear for there lives over deranged homeless people, many of whom are here illegally.
Greece is just the latest example of countries letting these people in and then get faced with killing, protests and other forms of violence. Greece is not doing well economically and little afford to house these people.

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Migrants protesting at an overcrowded camp on the Greek island of Lesbos set fires and clashed with police Sunday, killing at least one person, authorities said.
A burned body was brought to a local hospital and there is information about an unconfirmed second death, police said. The protesters were demanding to be transferred to the Greek mainland.
“The situation is tense,” Lesbos mayor Stratis Kytelis told The Associated Press earlier. “There is information about a dead mother and her child. We haven’t been able to confirm that yet.”
UNHCR Greece later tweeted that “we learned with deep sadness that the lives of a woman and a child were lost in a fire on (Lesbos) today.”
Greek police spokesman Lt. Col. Theodoros Chronopoulos told the AP that the migrants set a blaze at an olive grove outside the camp just before 5 p.m. (1400 GMT; 9 a.m. EDT) and, minutes later, inside the camp. Kytelis said that both fires were later extinguished.
Police said Deputy Citizen Protection Minister Lefteris Oikonomou, a former chief of the Greek police, was going to Lesbos.
About 12,000 migrants, most of them Afghans, are housed in a space designed for 3,000.
Separately, Greek police said a speeding car carrying 12 Afghan migrants ran through a red light and crashed into a vehicle coming from a side street, killing its driver, a 64-year-old Greek man.
Police said one migrant was seriously injured and three others were slightly injured in the crash Sunday morning on a road between Kavala and Thessaloniki in northern Greece. Some of the migrants were found in the sedan’s trunk.
The driver of the car with the migrants has been arrested. Police said he is a 25-year-old Moldovan trafficker who was taking migrants toward Thessaloniki, 22 kilometers (14 miles) to the west.
When asked by the AP whether the trafficker’s car was being pursued, a police spokesman said that wasn’t the case. But other police officials said the car might have been monitored by authorities in an unmarked vehicle. All spoke on condition of anonymity because the case is ongoing.
