Antonis Samaras: SYRIZA supports unrest, we will stop them

The twelfth suggestion by New Democracy is fighting illegal trade. "This is the main source of income for thousands of illegal immigrants. It kills legal trade every day. If we fight it, the immigrants themselves would be more interested in the procedures for voluntary return to their countries." Antonis Samaras suggested that the procedure for granting political asylum should be accelerated and the law on granting Greek citizenship voted by the PASOK government that "has made Greece a pole of attraction for illegal immigrants" should be immediately cancelled.

According to the New Democracy leader, the twelve measures can be implemented immediately and will not cost anything because they will be financed with European funds. He criticized SYRIZA for offering "the opposite of what we offer. The politics they advocate will lead to more cases of assault."

According to him, Alexis Tsipras’ promise of issuing "travel documents" to illegal immigrants to enable them to travel throughout Europe will lead to excluding Greece from the Schengen area. "Then, Greek citizens will need passports to travel and at a certain point, they may not be allowed in other European countries."

"SYRIZA promised these people not only an asylum but unemployment benefits. It is interesting how he thinks he can find the money for that purpose." Antonis Samaras strongly criticised SYRIZA’s support of hooded youths who break, burn and attack the police. "Some protect them, but we will stop them by democratic means and support from Europe, where they have sufficient experience in dealing with such problems. As long as we stay in Europe," said the leader of New Democracy and urged the Greek voters to vote for his party on Sunday.
