Yearning to breathe freebies?

The WAPO reports that the welfare states of Europe are having trouble coping;
Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras says Greece is overwhelmed by its migration problems as the country battles an economic crisis and that the EU is not doing enough to help. Nearly 50,000 migrants arrived in the EU via Greece in July alone, compared with 41,700 in all of 2014.
.... British authorities are investigating how a Sudanese migrant managed to walk nearly the entire length of the 31-mile (50-kilometer) Channel Tunnel from France.
.... The governing Fidesz party called for migrants cutting through Hungary’s new border fence to be “punished in an exemplary manner.” More than 110,000 migrants have arrived this year, nearly all walking across the southern border with Serbia.
Hungary is building a border fence they hope will soon be finished. And that it will work to keep out the more mouths to feed.
Berlin warned migrants from the Balkans that they have little chance of being granted asylum and might be billed for the costs of sending them home. A four-minute video, to be screened in Albania, Bosnia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia, shows migrants being put aboard a police bus, then boarding a flight home.
Used to be that Germany came to them. Now that the shoe is on the other foot....
