Hungary has ordered the close of its border with Serbia to curb migrant crisis. The decision is come to trying more migrants to enter on EU countries. After new Hungarian laws came into effect overnight, police sealed a railway crossing point that had been used by tens of thousands of migrants. These becomes a illegal migration in crime and deportation of that people.
Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto has suggested his country is planning to build a fence to keep migrants out along part of its border with Romania – a fellow EU member – to prevent the bypassing of the current frontier.
Hungarian authorities said more than 9,000 people – a new record – crossed into the country on Monday before the border was closed. Some 20,000 crossed into Austria from Hungary.
Police said they had arrested 60 people accused of trying to breach the fence on the border with Serbia.
Hungarian government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs said: “The official and legal ways to come to Hungary and therefore to the European Union remain open. That’s all we ask from all migrants – that they should comply with international and European law”.
The European Commission said it was seeking clarification of parts of the new Hungarian legislation, to check whether it was in line with EU asylum rules.
Germany and Austria calls for emergency EU metting to solve this crisis and discuss the quota plan. But Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary have opposed it.
German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said on Tuesday there should be ways of “exerting pressure” on states that refused binding quotas, possibly by reducing the amount of EU funding they receive.
But the Czech state secretary for the EU, Toma Prouza, said such threats were “empty but very damaging to all”
A spokeswoman from the UN refugee agency, Melissa Fleming, said she expected migrant “chaos” to continue in the absence of more decisive action by the EU, with migrants seeking a new route.
Conclusion: Hungary closes its border for nothing.
