George Soros Says Refugee Crisis In Greece Could Get Worse
In a recent issue of NYC Daily, billionaire entrepreneur George Soros lays out his own plan on http://www.biography.com/people/george-soros-20926527 for how he would respond to the refugee crisis in Europe. As it stands today, thousands of refugees are living in a makeshift camp at the Greek-Macedonia border. George Soros is critical of the EU-Turkey negotiations pointing out the flaws that are making the crisis even more difficult to bear.
George Soros points out that the negotiations are not European, as it was created by Turkey and imposed by German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Other problems include the policy is vastly underfunded, it imposes quotas requiring some refugees to live in places the don’t want and it forces refugees to stay in what is akin to a concentration camp with limited facilities.
George Soros says that although the deficiencies can be corrected, not everyone is on the same page. The European Commission has stated publicly that there should be an open debate to clarify matters and offer varying opinions on the matter. Soros believes that if something isn’t done quickly, a catastrophe could very well be in the making. A comprehensive plan will require at least $34 billion. Without action, the collapse of the Schengen international border system on http://www.marketwatch.com/story/george-soros-heres-my-plan-to-solve-the-asylum-chaos-2015-09-29 is a real threat.
