Btw, when they say "immigrants" they DO mean illegal aliens.

ATHENS, Greece -- More than 200 immigrants occupying a state university in Athens began a hunger strike today, ratcheting up pressure on the government to legalize them as Greece grapples with a massive tide of refugees.

The immigrants, all young men and mainly from Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia, arrived in Athens from the island of Crete late Monday, storming the capital's law school and settling in with blankets and sleeping bags. Fifty others launched similar protests in Thessaloniki in northern Greece, marking what supporters called the biggest hunger strike yet by immigrants in Europe.

Aint just the Greeks, the Spaniards and Italians are getting a bad attitude against illegal aliens. So is Mexico against Guatemalans. Maybe its time for the US to do the same.

I wish the U.S. would get tough on illegal immigration and start cleaning out the crime ridden ghettos these illegals create, then maybe I can move back to my hometown in Puerto Rico and live my life in peace down there with the rest of my family.

Greece's Interior Ministry said in a statement that "there is no intention and no possibility of a mass and indiscriminate legalization of aliens who have entered and reside in the country illegally,"
This is what OUR President needs to say as well, but no!...doing so would cost votes and hurt feelings!
