Re: How should the EU handle the Migrant Crisis from now?

Media report the Hungarian border is blocked. But I read there are 2 legitimate entry points, and is not blocked. Yet the refugees are now streaming through Croatia.

Why hasn't Germany, France, Spain and Sweden simply set up a field office at the Hungarian border, or Turkey for that matter to solve this? They don't want to set a bad precedence, yet they already have.

Oh yeah... the media are definitely mis-leading with their reports. The migrants can enter Hungary, but they have to register there.... and they don't want to do this, because they want to go to Germany!

Refugees in Roszke (Hungary) camp...fed like animals in pen.

One has to wonder why the officers in charge of handing out the food do not do so in an orderly manner?

Like instructing the people to form queus? (Orderly, so everyone gets their fair share).

Or maybe that is just the way the people of that country conduct their business anyway?

Not all cultures are the same or behave in the same way.

So, us here in other parts of Europe see this as "fed like animals in a pen" - and others see no other way.

And that is one of the problems to arise in the future wherever the poor refugees are sent to ...... to adapt - if possible.

The right way May be not

The workforce movement must have been arranged by Germany many years ago since 2007 at least. The elite Germans had moved to CH long ago leaving open market whereas Middle East started dispatching skillful Syrians to Germany starting mid of 2015. Pervertly sehr gut geplanned and ezry wan shud vollow die exemplar ... LOL!

There's more to it than meets the eye. That would require foreign (german) jurisdiction over a certain (hungarian) area, similar to an embassy, which obviously requires a treaty.

From the way Merkel has been telling the Hungarians what to do this far, I would have guessed she believed she had that juristriction anyway.

I find that very hard to believe as being a major roadblock considering they encouraged the lawless entry of Hungary, disregarded Dublin and Shengen.

I think it is more a lack of real desire to deal with it. They can accomplish it with a german official, an official stamp and a waiver form, IF they wanted to.

Many east European governments - from what I've seen and heard, the people of several east European countries have been bloody amazing over the last few weeks.

Nothing comes for free honey bunny.. If you want to use this as an argument, you're either very naive or just nasty.
Don't believe everything you read in the media; or at least consult various sources...

Re: How should the EU handle the Migrant Crisis from now?

Quote:
A school located in Pocking, Bavaria sent a letter to parents advising them of new “security measures” after a migrant shelter was opened at the school’s nearby gym.
Parents were warned that their children should not wear revealing clothes for fear of “misunderstandings” that could lead to “attacks” by the migrants.
...

A 7-year-old girl was raped by a north African migrant in a German park this week, a story that has received little media attention.
Quote:
Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said that the new arrivals were likely to encounter crowds of violent drunks returning from the festival, which begins on Saturday.


“Refugees from Muslim countries may not be used to seeing extremely drunk people in public,” Herrmann said. “It might seem a bit odd to some of them, if I may say so, but this is the reality.”
It appears Germans are being very accommodating and courteous to the Muslim culture regarding women's clothing and alcohol.

Hungary is only carrying out its EU obligations. The migrants are actually allowed to register as asylum seekers in Hungary through the official channels. But they don't want to do that. They want to go to Germany and Sweden where there's free €€€€€€€.

Re: How should the EU handle the Migrant Crisis from now?

What evidence is there that the Raper was a North African Muslim? According to the news article the mother did not see him!
Maybe he left a business card?

Re: How should the EU handle the Migrant Crisis from now?

If you're going somewhere to ask for help, and the first thing you do is break its laws, should you be surprised and angry if they turn you down?

Re: How should the EU handle the Migrant Crisis from now?

This non-violent approach to entering another country should be exemplified and rewarded:

"The Storskog border station -- just two hours drive from the Arctic City of Murmansk in Russia's far north -- is Norway's only legal border crossing with Russia.

According to border agreements, it is illegal either to cross the border on foot or to give someone without papers a lift,
....
So far this year, 133 asylum seekers have entered Norway though Storskog on bicycles. According to local police, most of them are Syrian refugees.
"
http://www.thelocal.no/20150827/syri...der-on-bicyles

That is very cute. Perhaps they can also hop, skip, jump, dance or jog across the border?
