"Building fences, using tear gas and other forms of violence against migrants and asylum seekers, detention, withholding access to basics such as shelter, food or water and using threatening language or hateful speech will not stop migrants from coming or trying to come to Europe," he said in a statement."
Does this not reflect the thought process of Donald Trump and the angry Conservatives he appeals to?
War planners and their elite partners in crimes against humanity have studied enough history to know that when the financial pie gets cut tightly and there are only crumbs allotted to workers, the resulting anger can turn into the kind of raw fuel used to light sparks between ethnic groups.
It was true on the part of Germany during the 1930s and it's true again.

Spain's youth have no jobs. Greece is in a chokehold set by the Central-European bankers. Italy is just holding on and Ireland is also feeling financial implosion.

A good remedy would be The Pottery Barn rule: Let those corporations, powerbrokers, CIA shadow forces, and weapons producers and suppliers who MAKE the wars and profit from them... pay for the damage.
