Leaving Turkey a safe country for death in the sea is the peoples own choice as there are plenty of safe land without a sea crossing . The people traffickers being millionaires will be easy to spot ,the police watch and know them anyway ,so if the people traffickers are not millionaires it means they are funding ISIS and EU is aiding them with their open door policy.
