Not to be overly contrarian, but the answer is "probably". That ticket meets minimum connection time (MCT), but at a particularly busy time immigration in MIA can be an absolute mess. I would expect you'll be okay, but don't dawdle and, once through, go straight to your connecting gate. Since you booked it as one ticket the airline (whoever is actually ...

There are two benefits of having a single ticket. The airline has already evaluated the connection, with their knowledge of the flights and airport, and decided to book it.

When you buy a ticket from an airline they are on the hook for getting to your destination. So they will not sell tickets with impossible connections. Every airport has a minimum connection time, and for some airports that can indeed be as low as 30 minutes. In Europe competition between airlines is fierce. And for example when Lufthansa offers a ZRH-MUC-...

Generally an airline is responsible for your connection between flights issued on a single ticket. Airports have a minimum connection time which limits how short a connection is allowed when ticketing. That time sometimes depends on factors like terminal changes but is in my opinion highly optimistic. When you buy from a third-party agent you are not always ...

It's plenty of time. Passport checkpoints are a little slow in Athens, but not three hours.
