Hungary becomes the first country to shut its doors to migrants

Hungary has begun the construction of a 100-mile-long fence across its border with Serbia in a bid to stem the ‘untenable’ flow of migrants entering the country.

So far this year more than 67,000 people, mostly from Kosovo, Afghanistan and Syria, have illegally crossed into the country in a desperate attempt to reach the EU.

And as construction began today on a massive 13ft-high people barrier, a fortuitous family from Syria became one of the last to successfully make the crossing.

    I hope the Hungarians send them directly to Brussels.

    Great news! I’m moving to Hungary. Oh, wait a minute…

    Fences fences everywhere. I wish I had a list of all the countries doing it, but of course Americans aren’t allowed to. I may have read today that the Czech Republic is joining the fence groups.

      I know Canada isn’t allowed to do it either. What the heck is wrong these western countries?

        Fences encourage apartheid, which is hateful, ignorant & racist.

        Once upon a time the USA wanted to build a fence between themselves and Canada. Kinda hard to do.

    I thought that every Country welcomed a bunch of illiterate, hate filled, Muslims.
    Is this not the way of the Future ?

    Woo Hoo! Go Hungary!

    Now clean up the stragglers that slipped through before you started the barrier and toss them back over (preferably with a catapult).
