Hungary CLOSING BORDERS for asylum seekers in response to EU ruling

The EU top court ruled on Thursday that the transit zone where Hungary have been detaining asylum seekers was illegal.

Hungary obeyed the court ruling with Viktor Orban’s chief of staff Gergely Gulyas saying “The Hungarian government disagrees with the ruling, we consider it a risk to European security, but as an EU member state, we will honour all court rulings”.

The Hungarian Helsinki Comittee sued Hungary over the transit zones, and they have welcomed their closure. The Hungarian Helsinki Committee is funded by billionaire George Soros.

This ruling by the EU court has been seen as a major victory for leftist politicians and activists.

However, it seems like that has been short lasting as Hungary has responded to the EU ruling by shutting it’s borders completely to asylum seekers instead.

From now on, asylum seekers must apply for asylum at Hungarian embassies situated in neighbouring countries – In other words, countries that are all considered safe.

This means that according to law, asylum seekers who manage to get to Hungary’s neighbouring countries, must apply for asylum in those countries instead and cannot apply for asylum in Hungary.

Which means that Hungary has effectively stopped all asylum seekers from the country.

And this has upset the Helsinki Committee, with them saying that it will now be even harder for refugees to gain asylum in the EU via Hungary.

Hungary has been taking a hard stance against migration and asylum seekers. During the peak of the 2015 migration crisis, Vikro Orban ordered the southern border in Hungary to be closed.

The Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has repeatedly been strongly against migration, saying that “countries that don’t stop immigration will be lost” in a speech while seeking re-election for his third term in 2018.
