Observers Say Erdogan Using Migrants as Political Weapon Against Greece

As punishment for blocking sale of American fighter jets to Turkey.

Some observers say Turkish Recep Erdogan is once again using migrants as a political weapon against Greece as at least 40,000 people so far this year have been been turned away at the border.

The Greek Coast Guard has intercepted around 40,000 migrants attempting to enter the country from Turkey via the Aegean Sea.

“In the first four months of 2022, about 40,000 migrants tried to enter the country illegally,” Civil Protection Minister Takis Theodorikakos revealed.

Observers say that Erdogan is once again using migrants as a weapon, this time to punish Greece for trying to block the sale of American fighter jets to Turkey.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mehmet Cavusoglu has also threatened to challenge Greece’s sovereign claim to various eastern islands in the Agean Sea.

“Admittedly, the mild weather conditions partly explain these attempts at arrivals, but there is also a worrying political explanation,” said Marc-Antoine Pineau, of the NGO ASIA in Samos.

The weaponization of migrants again underscores how they are used as a tool to undermine societies and create instability and chaos.

“The increased migrant flows are the first major surge since just prior to the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic when President Erdogan made good on prior threats to “open the gates” to Europe and allow migrants to make their way to Greece, with thousands attempting to cross the northern land border in Evros before it was shut down due to the pandemic outbreak,” reports Breitbart.

We previously highlighted footage showing refugees in Greece starting fires as they tried to break through the border to reach northern European welfare havens.

Greece was heavily impacted during the height of the 2015-16 refugee crisis when the country was deluged with migrants crossing into the country primarily from Turkey.

The wave only truly relented after the European Union agreed to pay Turkey €6 billion euros to stop the flow, a deal which also granted Turkish citizens visa-free travel to Europe.

As we document in the video above, the UK is becoming increasingly overwhelmed with economic migrants illegally entering the country via boats from France.

The government is now dispersing them in towns and villages across the country, much to the anger of locals, while £5 billion pounds of taxpayer money is spent every day housing illegals in 30,000 hotel rooms nationwide.

Video Of Border Patrol Unlocking Gates For Illegals; Rand Paul Says Time For ‘Zero Tolerance Policy’

“Anybody who is caught in the act of coming in should be immediately placed back on the other side.”

Video of Border Patrol agents unlocking a gate in Eagle Pass and allowing illegal immigrants to pour through after the National Guard had locked it prompted Senator Rand Paul to call for a ‘zero tolerance policy’ to be implemented.

Fox News reporter Bill Melugin tweeted footage of the incident, noting “For the first time, we witnessed the TX National Guard close & lock a gate on private property at a major crossing area in Eagle Pass, denying entry to migrants who just crossed illegally & expected to be let in. Border Patrol then came w/ a key & let them in for processing.”

Meliugin also noted “Border Patrol opening gates etc to allow migrants in is not new. They have to process migrants on US soil per federal law. What’s new is TX is now closing the gate & denying entry at this major crossing location. Always open in months past, including this video I shot in May.”

Commenting on the video, Senator Rand Paul stated “The Democrats love illegal immigration, and so they have not been willing to change the laws.”

“Anybody who is caught in the act of coming in should be immediately placed back on the other side. No process, nothing. If you were caught breaking in, not through a normal portal of entry, you should go back on the other side of the river immediately,” Paul asserted.

The Senator further explained that he would like to see more incentives for legal immigration as a way of stemming the influx of undocumented migrants.

“We should put more resources to allow more people to come and apply in a normal fashion at the port of entry. But I would have zero tolerance.”

“Once you did that for about six months, and while I was not opposed to the wall, I think you could do it with helicopters and with maybe 50 stations along the border, and you could have it done in a month,” Paul said:

Watch:

According to data from Customs and Border Protection, more than two million people have attempted to cross the border in the 2022 fiscal year so far.

That figure equates to a 22 year high.
