The European Union wants to punish Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Poland for refusing to “fulfill the obligations” for the reception of migrants.
Brussels has moved from threats to the offensive, suing countries that refuse to obey migrant quotas.
The commission, the EU’s executive body, accused the three countries of “non-compliance with their legal obligations on relocation” – said the first deputy chairman of the European Commission (EC) Frans Timmermans.
However, this decision did not become a surprise for these states. The European Commission spent many months trying to force them to obey.
In 2015, the EU leadership developed national quotas for asylum seekers from refugee camps in Greece and Italy. It was about 160 thousand migrants.
Hungary will be punished twice
The European Commission decided to file another lawsuit against Hungary. This one is for the recently adopted law on non-governmental organizations and higher education. The problem for the EU is that these laws oblige NGOs to disclose information about the sources of their funding from abroad. This means that it will allow the authorities to better control the activities of “foreign agents”. For obvious reasons, such laws do not suit representatives of the globalist elite.
In Hungary, at the state level, it is recognized that the migration tsunami is caused artificially by globalists to erase European identities. In addition, at the national level, there is openly demonstrated strong dissatisfaction with the migration policy of Brussels.
The absurd situation
In 2015, Hungary and Slovakia themselves filed a lawsuit. Their complaints were about EU’s migration policy and quotas. The main argument was that the EU must respect the sovereignty and desire of the citizens of the participating countries. However, the court rejected this claim.
It should be noted that Brussels’ claims to the Hungary, Poland, and the Czech Republic are also absurd. Migrants usually avoid these countries, preferring rich and “refugees welcome” countries with large grants. And even if they are sent to poor EU countries, they quickly move from there to a rich and tolerant Germany, Denmark or Sweden.
Demonstration of power
The anxiety of Brussels can be understood. If not all EU countries obey, then the management of the community is inevitably called into question. Therefore, It can not be ruled out that the EU leadership decided to start acting. This can make the population of the countries of Eastern and Central Europe think twice before voting in elections for anti-migrant populist parties. These parties are gaining popularity in all of Europe. Populists begin to come to power in one country after another (the last example is Austria). Another interesting event happened a few days ago in the Czech Republic. Its government now is led by the leader of the political movement of the “Action of Dissatisfied Citizens” movement – Andrei Babish. He is a good friend, and companion of the country’s president Miloš Zeman, who constantly repeats: “The EU does not need migrants.”
