‘We are protecting the freedoms of European citizens’

‘We are protecting the freedoms of European citizens’: Hungary defends closing its Croatian border as several busloads of migrants reaches Slovenia

Several buses full of migrants trapped in Croatia has reached the Slovenian border after Hungary shut its border with the country last night.
Hungary, which also built a 110-mile-long barb wire fence along its border with Serbia, said it closed the crossing to ‘protect the freedoms’ of European citizens.

The blockade at the Hungary-Croatia border forced thousands of migrants to divert to Slovenia, home to two million people, where the new arrivals will be registered before ‘most of them’ are transferred to the Austrian border.

Slovenia cancelled all trains from Croatia so migrants could not enter the country that way. Experts fear the move will leave thousands of migrants stranded in Croatia, which is ‘ill-equipped’ to deal with them.

    ‘an Afghan refugee was shot dead as he tried to cross Turkey’s border into Bulgaria, in what the United Nations said was the first incident of its kind.’
    And not the last.
    Winter comes soon.

      The incident happened when a patrol of three officers was trying to contain a group of about 50 people some 30 km (18 miles) from the Bulgarian-Turkish border, said Georgi Kostov, chief secretary of the interior ministry.
      “They put up resistance during the arrest,” he told a news conference. “According to one of the officers, a warning shot has been fired in the air and one of the migrants was wounded by a ricochet and later died.”

      Those sky ricochets are unpredictable.

    Don’t worry Europe. The election is over in a couple of days here, and then the planes will be on the way to take all those muslim refugees off your hands.

      If I was living there in a rural area full of those walking dead I would be having meetings down at the local church/community hall making plans for that.
      It would be like Deliverance without the squealing like a pig.
      I’d have a bit of squealing pig around for the burial rite.

        No burial; pigs are omnivores. That is the message you want to send: mess with us and you’ll end up as pig shit.

            The animal behaviour “expert” is full of crap. Having raised many pigs over the years you know that you certainly would never decide to take a nap in their enclosure. I have had them kill and eat any animal or fowl that ventured into their area. It is just the nature of things and doesn’t make pigs evil or whatever.

    Run you traitors… find yourselves a nice deep, dark cave,

  • Shebel

    I do NOT even pretend to understand how a bunch of people from a bunch of Countries can decide to travel across Europe , ignore ALL the Laws ,act both ignorant and arrogant and then get exactly what the Want. This is CRAZY.
    ” I am going to the Country that gives me the most Welfare”
    ” I am going to the Country that will pay to bring in all my family,friends and relatives”

    This is not just crazy. It is Suicidal.
    I don’t think Politicians should have the Right to make these decisions –ANYMORE.

  • Shebel

    The Guilt trip is Loonng gone. Take it to heart Natives. If you really want to preserve your Culture then ‘Live the Life’. You can’t have it both ways.
    We are sick and tired of being bled to death.
    As for these New-comers.
    Obey our Laws— or don’t come here. It is not exactly that we like you. We are forced to Tolerate you. .
    Make NO mistake —Toleration is a Gov’t mandated Law—
    —RESPECT— You gotts to earn.

    If you Do Not RESPECT us— then all this Love is simply Tolerance.
