Polish nationalists are arguing that a wall may have to be built on Poland's eastern border in order to counter a possible wave of refugees from the Middle East.

MP Sylwester Chruszcz of the Kukiz '15 grouping believes refugees will flow through the Ukraine and Poland as a result of the closing of the Hungarian-Serbian border.
“Poland should be prepared to build a wall against a wave of refugees,” he said.
Chruszcz is one of five members of Poland's National Movement (Ruch Narodowy) to enter parliament as a result of an alliance with Kukiz'15.
He also claimed that “ethnic massacres will take place in the West and we will have to take in other refugees - British, French and Germans.”
The main flow of migrants to date has seen Poland almost entirely bypassed. Chruszcz nevertheless argued that 8 Iranian citizens were detained last month on the Polish Ukrainian border, and that 13 others, including seven children, were intercepted near Lubaczów, south eastern Poland. (nh)
