The GOP is Apparently in Charge of Greek Immigration Policy

In some seriously weird news, the Greek government has decided to build a six-mile razor-wire fence along their border with Turkey. According to Minister of Citizen Protection* (I love that this is a job title in Greece) Christos Papoutsis, the “fence will be coupled with a network of fixed night-vision cameras providing real-time video to a new command center.”

Apparently, 300 Spartans were not available.

*This has been edited to reflect updated information; the NY Times article incorrectly reported Mr. Papoutsis’s title, as he is the Minister for Citizen Protection, not the Minister of Public Order. Thank you, Heidi!
