Flags and immigrants

«What’s in a flag?» (Nov. 7) was an excellent article. (But) if these economic migrants have been in Greece for over five years why aren’t they Greek citizens? When my parents came to Australia, they were offered citizenship after five years and they accepted. Was the Albanian student ever offered citizenship? He may or may not want it, which is another issue that was not raised. Greece needs more migrants but they need to fit in with the mainstream population and I am not sure that Pakistanis, and other Muslims do. I find that Albanians and other Eastern Europeans fit in a lot better. This is significant.
