Greece (Mission Network News) — The European Union is looking to play ‘hot potato’ with the refugee crisis. Under the Dublin Regulation, the EU is considering sending refugees currently in other European countries back to Greece, their original point of entry, before they can apply for a new host country.
However, leaders in Greece say such a move would overwhelm their nation as they are still struggling to get on their feet economically. Greek authorities say other countries in Europe are not pulling their own weight in taking the refugees ready for relocation. There are currently around 60,000 refugees stranded in Greece.
Tasos Ioannidis of AMG International says in the midst of these national struggles, Greek citizens are looking for something or someone to blame. And they are seeing a rise in anti-immigrant sentiments in Greece.
