Why don't they just go to other EU countries?

I guess it is because we are the flop house of the world. Our government won't secure our borders and with all the freebies waiting for them here why go anywhere else?

Because our social service network is actually more generous and whacked than most other Nations. Get out your check book suckers. I doubt we shall hear from the usual pro crowd as these aren't hispanic illegals.

Yes, the generous food stamps will definitely help the illegals from Greece buy their ethnic foods and make a good business for this store.

People everywhere throughout the world have come to realize that if they make it to the USA, the rest of their lives will be gravy. It's so much easier to break US laws than to work to improve their own countries, no one is allowed to fail here in the USA, they don't have to worry about making it here, the government will ensure that they live very very well.

Close the borders already.

As more countries fall, the more people we have to "sponsor".

Greeks have been a positive influence on American culture and do very well in the USA. I see no reason to complain. If all of Greece wants to move to the US they should be able to do so. It would raise the cultural level of America.

How will the DOJ respond? Will they deport the white Europeans or keep them? AFAIK, the feds seem like they only let Mexicans live here, no one else

They obviously haven't done too well for their own country. Now they just want to bail out of it and come here to be taken care of. It's time they work to improve their own country instead of expecting the easy way out.

They obviously aren't coming for jobs, to work hard for a living we don't have jobs.
