STUNNING new video reveals how Europe is “committing suicide” with open borders and political correctness

 by: Lance D Johnson (Natural News) European society is being flooded by migrants from North Africa, East Asia, and the Middle East. In 2015, over a million migrants made their way illegally into Europe, traveling by land and sea.

Citizens from Germany, Greece, Bulgaria, Italy, Cyprus, and Spain are losing their cultural heritageas their communities are forced to accommodate any and all migrants.
