Commenting article: UN Accuses Bulgaria of Holding Migrants in 'Catch-22' Situation

The United Nations High Commissioners for Human Rights has voiced serious councern over the situation of migrants irregularly crossing into Bulgaria.

Their detention both as they are entering and as they are leaving, facing prosecution and even imprisonment in the latter case, places "many of them in an invidious Catch-22 situation," the UN quotes Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein as saying.

“This means that people who do not qualify under the strict definition of a refugee, but still have legitimate reasons for being unable to return to their home country, have hardly any avenues open to them,” he has noted, describing the situation as "clearly inhumane and unacceptable".

The EU countries neighboring Bulgaria already closed their borders so the migrants will be stuck in Bulgaria. They have to know that Germany is not accepting any more.. And they have to know that they will be stuck in Bulgaria and live an unpleasant live. It has to be laud and clear. Dear immigrants and militants do not come to us... the Germans do not want you!!!! they have already taken enough and we re not able to feed you or give you a job. This migrant wave has to stop... For shear hypocrisy the west European politicians are not making this clear to the Arab world...but it has to be don.

Since Bulgarian become private colony of Georg Soros and his graduates in the EU ...the living conditions seriously deteriorated. Bulgaria lost at least 2000 000 of its population.. and at least 60% of its capable workforce. Only the old and incapable and gypsies remained in this country. And there is no expertise needed to run businesses. So Bulgaria can barely support its population.. it cant support migrants.... concentration of immigrants will be disaster.

The more we are blamed the better. The migrants should know that it is not wise to come here.
