  1. This is funny in a sad way. They put up their borders to refugees of war and victims that they start. Do they realize that they had no consideration that they entered the refugee ‘s country without permission and began a war that took away their home, their safety, they hopes and dreams, their future, their plans , their everything’s, sometimes even it has claimed some family members Rios, they are broken and in grief fleeing, running for their lives and instead for helping them with a safe home you turn back to death’s door. Now that’s the real devil. You burn down the house and then you tell them to stay inside if they know what’s good for them. So this is what EU and US is doing, they are reducing the world’s population. That’s all. Shame on them.
