Bulgaria: Bulgarian Police Detain 17 Irregular Migrants near Yambol

Bulgarian police have found 17 irregular migrants in an abandoned building near the city of Yambol, in the country’s southeast, private Darik radio station reported on Saturday.

The migrants – eight men, three women and six children – claimed they were of Afghan origin. None of them carried identity documents.

Police, who detained the people on Friday morning, later sent them to a migrant distribution centre in the nearby town of Elhovo to establish their identity.

More than 1,000 irregular migrants have been detained inside Bulgaria  this year, including 300 in March alone, according to data from the Ministry of the Interior.

The leaders do not want them.. the bankers want them..they are concerned of the demographics.. there is not such thing as a real leader in the western part of EU..

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

We should not detain them!!! we should hide them and allow them to reach Germany and Sweden.. the western EU countries completely deserve that and they are asking for that.. we can not save Europe that do not want to be saved.
