Greece follows U.S. example by building giant border wall to keep out illegal immigrants | Mail Online

 

The Greek government has unveiled plans to construct a wall along its 128-mile land border with Turkey in order to tackle the influx of illegal immigrants.

Interior minister Christian Papoutsis said the wall was a necessary measure after more than 100,000 people illegally entered the Mediterranean nation last year.

But the plans – which have compared with the 650-mile barrier along sections of the border between the U.S. and Mexico – have been criticised by the European Commission as a ‘short-term measure’  that does not deal with the root of the problem.
