Riots broke out on Saturday afternoon at the pre-departure Corinth Detention Center in Greece. Hundreds of illegal migrants living inside the camp set fire to the facility, and violently attacked police and firefighters with bottles and stones. The attacks followed the suicide of a Turkish refugee of Kurdish origin staying at the camp who hung himself in the bathroom.
The 24-year-old migrant was reportedly detained for 16 months and was awaiting a decision on his release. However, the authorities issued a decision to extend his detention.
Around 700 migrants, mainly from Pakistan and Afghanistan, are held at the center, one of many temporary facilities set up around Greece in an effort to deal with the country’s mass-illegal migration problem.

This is not the first time migrants rioted at this detention center in Corinth or other makeshift holding sites for illegals in Greece. It is not surprising, as more and more migrant camps in Greece go up in flames. Instead of migrants being held accountable in Greece for their criminal actions, European countries are rewarding them, often by setting them loose into Europe, which is likely why they set the camps on fire.
As reported previously at RAIR Foundation USA, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Bavarian Premier Markus Söder have been bringing thousands of migrants into Germany from Greece after they set fire to their camp in Lesbos. The leaders chose to reward the migrant with a new home in Germany instead of sending them back to their country of origin.
Left-wing leaders like Chancellor Merkel and Premier Söder continue to use migrants to dilute host cultures, ensure more votes, and seize power. It will be interesting to see how long it takes Merkel and Söder to extend invitations to these latest illegal migrants, some of whom are arsonists, and set their migration facility on fire.
