Slovenians form citizen’s army to stop illegals migrants

A citizen's patrol has been set up to curb irregular migration on the Slovenian border with Croatia.

    The Balkan route for migrants through Turkey and Greece to the north to the Germany is well-known, but the classic route, which leads from Greece via Hungary to Central Europe, has been largely closed since 2016.

    Originally the route was via Serbia and Hungary to the north, but thanks to Hungary’s courageous Prime Minister Orban, it is no longer possible.

    The human replacement wave now runs through Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia and Austria, as an alternative route that has been established to gain entry into Germany and Scandinavia.

    Although Croatia, the EU country, is working diligently to curb the steady flow, masses of people are still coming to Slovenia. But diligent Slovenian citizens are working to stop the wave.

    For this reason, to reinforce the regular border guard at the Croatian border, civilians have now formed an army to capture illegal immigrants trying to cross the border, reported the TV news channel Euronews.

    Euronews called the group “vigilantes” but the definition of a vigilante is a member of a self-appointed group of citizens who undertake law enforcement in their community – without legal authority. In this case however, the citizens are helping regular border patrols to enforce the law, not to break the law.

    The group supports regular border guards and when patrols catch migrants who are trying to cross the border, the migrants are handed over to the authorities. Slovenia usually monitors the border with police units.

    Blaz Zidar, who supports the country’s police forces with his own troops, said: “I think the only solution here is to send the army to the border. The situation is similar now, as if you were opening the gates of a prison and saying we let out all the prisoners. Who would stay in there? Not a single one “.

    Andrei Sisko, commander of the citizen’s group, says: “What is the goal? The aim is to educate people and volunteers to defend their country as needed and to help the military and police to control public order. In times of massive migrations from the African and Asian states, especially Muslims, it is important to protect our borders. Because a state that is unable to protect its border is not a sovereign state.”

    Slovenian Prime Minister Marjan Sarec during a visit to the Croatian border announced an increase in border protection against illegal migrants.

    Some 35 additional soldiers have been posted at the border. Among other things, the military will use armored vehicles and modern surveillance technology in future to stop the flow of irregular entries.
