Russia and Belarus send more immigrants across Polish border. The Belarusian regime takes $10,000 from each migrant

 It's hard not to see similarities of what is happening on the Polish-Belarusian border and US southern border. In both cases, the immigrants receive help from foreign countries and from political groups in the country. 

In Poland, the opposition parties pretend not to see that Belarus is not exactly neighboring Afghanistan, or Syria, or any other country in the Middle East and already call on the government to welcome "Afghan refugees" even though they arrive there "in style" flown by Belarusian airlines from Iraq, Iran, and Turkey.

Besides obvious play by Lukashenko to strengthen unrest in the European Union, the Minsk regime is bringing more immigrants to the Belarusian-Lithuanian and Belarusian-Polish borders for a second reason, hard cash. 

There are more and more reports that Alyaksandr Lukashenka's officials are charging huge amounts of money for it.

"The Belarusian regime supposedly takes around $10,000 from each migrant delivered to the EU border.  Every day, planes arrive in Minsk from Baghdad and Basra, and more irregularly also from Irbil (via Amman),' - wrote Adam Eberhardt, director of the Center for Eastern Studies, on Twitter.

In other words just like cartels in Mexico, Lukashenko is now involved in human trafficking. 

The problem is that those who never miss a chance to attack Poland are more than happy to do so. The Washington Post already report about 32 Afghans trapped between Poland and Belarus.
