While the news was filled with stories about Costco lines, Europe and Turkey edged to the brink of war with the Islamist dictatorship sending armored vehicles and heavily armed police forces to attack the Greek border and aid Muslim migrants in their invasion.
Meanwhile, Greece is already full of migrants and they’re a huge coronavirus risk.
Medical charity Medicins Sans Frontieres (MSF) has urged Greece to immediately evacuate migrants from overcrowded camps on its islands due to a high risk of the coronavirus spreading swiftly among people living in squalid conditions.
Greece reported its first fatality from the virus on Thursday, in the town of Patra on the mainland. It has confirmed 117 cases of coronavirus so far, including one on the island of Lesbos, where the notorious Moria camp is located.
This adds another blackmail card to the stacked deck. If the camps remain in place, they become a breeding ground for a massive outbreak. If they’re broken up, not only do they risk carrying the disease deep into Europe, but the usual sexual assaults, gang violence, and acts of terrorism will follow in their wake.
America has the same problem.
Detained populations, whether criminals or migrants, are potential breeding zones for outbreaks. Lefties are already demanding a massive jailbreak for the prison population to head off a coronavirus outbreak. And the same obviously goes for migrants.
Either you free them and they kill you. Or you keep them locked up and they become the epicenter of an epidemic.
This is why the middle ground doesn’t work.
Either you maintain border security or you lose everything.
