The leaders of those western european countries want all these migrants and they are ignoring the wishes of the people who elected them into office
Countries like Bulgaria have an opportunity to prevent this happening here by demanding that our leaders listen to us. We cannot afford to take in all these people who have no intention of work since they were promised free houses, cars and welfare in the EU by the people traffickers and this idea was confirmed by Merkel.
There is terrible suffering by the people who live near these migrants from Greece all the way to Sweden and we dont want it here. We dont want our women and children abused, our businesses robbed, our police attacked, our emergency services stopped from helping people in trouble
