Migrant Workers & EU Development(s)

Greek journalist Matina Stevis writes in the WSJ this week:
'Germany, Finland and the Netherlands—three governments that have taken the toughest stance toward Athens in the euro crisis—also have repeatedly voiced concerns about the Greek border.'
An article that reminds us immediately of the statement by Greek Public Order Minister Nikos Dendias in August:
'The immigration problem is perhaps even greater than the financial one.'
These comments illustrate once again, just like words by Dutch foreign minister Rosenthal concerning Libya last year, the need for explanation of the crucial and central role of migrant workers at the heart of the EU project. Since JFK's speech in Berlin 'ich bin ein Berliner' the migrant worker has allways been at the heart of the EU project. How come we never read about that?
