Hungary was once a destination for some. They may reach it now and decide not to enter. Some are worried that once they’re in they’ll be stuck. They are not a refugee friendly country, but a poor nation that lacks opportunity. Hungary doesn’t want refugees to just pass through their country on their way to another either. The country completed a fence that runs along the Serbia border, to stop illegal entry. Those who enter illegally now can look forward to deportation and imprisonment.
Nations throughout the European Union are being forced to implement checkpoints, and require documentation to help control the migrant traffic they’ve been getting. Refugees attempt to satisfy the nations that say “No” with proof they are fleeing imminent danger in their own country. If they’re not granted asylum, they can appeal through the courts.
Earlier this week, Hungary began enforcing new laws regarding border crossing. Refugees try to get through their fence, only to be attacked by armored vehicles with water cannons. They’re spraying tear gas into crowds of refugees to discourage them from passing through country. Tempers fly from crowds that have migrated a long distance this far. They now need to reroute if they hope to get around Hungary; some are trying Croatia.
For those nations who view Hungary’s border efforts as necessary and are considering doing the same, stand by for attack. Germany invited refugees to come to them, but is becoming limited in resources. Sweden and Austria are also taking in refugees, but without other nations increasing their intake, Europe will become inundated with displaced people.
