Some 200 migrants were brought back to Turkey on Monday by Greece. It is the first wave of deportations to ease Europe’s migration crisis. Aboard three chartered Turkish ferries, the orderly return of the 202 migrants to Turkey is a contrast of the migrants' perilous sea travel. Most of those deported are migrants from Pakistan and Afghanistan who Turkey will eventually deport to their home countries.

It is such a difficult situation.
If you're seen to be really nice and welcoming, more people will risk their lives immagrating.
If you're sturn an in-humane, you're making the lives of people who're trying to survive even harder.

Giving them a safe escort to Turkey I suppose is the middle ground, but it kind of wipes Greeces hands of the responsibility and I guess they'll turn a blind eye to how Turkey will treat them people as their sent home.

I am wondering about refugees from Pakistan and Afghanistan. I didn't know that the state of affairs in these two countries had reach crisis proportions would have caused people to be fleeing in large numbers. I thought the problem would mostly be in Iraq and Syria. There is so much Instability in that region that it's sometimes difficult to keep track of what is really happening.

The plight of Middle East migrants is not easy. It's hard to be in their shoes. But countries have their own people and national security to think about. If they ease up their borders, chaos would erupt. A fact no one can't deny is that among these migrants are terrorists waiting to make their next big move. Blame this mass displacement on irresponsible governments and terrorist factions. They're only thinking about their own welfare, forgetting that there will be thousands on the losing end with every weapon they fire.
