Recently the Trump administration has come under much scrutiny in regards to the large number of migrant children being separated and detained from their parents while attempting to cross the USA-Mexico border. In what seems to be an attempt to draw attention away from criticism of his policies, Trump has attacked the German policy approach to immigration. The German Prime Minister, Angela Merkle has been battling a tough domestic row after defending her government's immigration policy. Trump has taken this point to his advantage and has been using Europe as an example of why America should not take in refugees. Congress is ultimately divided on the separation issue, but cooperation is greatly needed in order to ensure the well being of these children.

Currently the economic and numismatic situation in Greece is tremendously deplorable. The substantive amounts of refugees have culminated in the chaos that has ubiquitously existed after the bailout referendum. Unemployment has risen to 21%, one of the highest figures in Europe. The national debt of Greece places the country in second position worldwide. And regardless of the wage levels, approximately 60% of the gross pay is removed due to extreme income taxes. The prime minister has essentially no diplomatic attitude and has further contributed to the economic crisis that plagues the state. Despite of all the benefits of being a member of the EU, Greece decided to not accept the Troika help, which would possibly assist them in paying any of their debts, while Grexit almost happened. Tax evasion continues to exponentially proliferate, while social welfare is at its lowest. Myriads of people starve, education is limited and work positions have ceased to develop.
