European Court Orders EU Countries to Take Migrants

The European Union’s highest court has rejected a complaint by Hungary and Slovakia over the legality of the bloc’s mandatory refugee quota program, which requires EU member states to admit tens of thousands of migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

The European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled that the European Commission, the powerful executive arm of the European Union, has the legal right to order EU member states to take in so-called asylum seekers, and, conversely, that EU member states have no legal right to resist those orders.

The September 6 ruling, which has been hailed as a victory for European federalism, highlights the degree to which the European Union has usurped decision-making powers from its 28 member states. The ruling also showcases how the European Union’s organs of jurisprudence have become politicized.

    If they have to take them it doesn’t say where they have to be taken too. I suggest taking them to Bouvet Island, or Pitcairn Island. Both belong to EU members and so technically are EU territory and both are so far off the path that the migrants couldn’t escape to anywhere else.

      Excellent point.

    I’m pretty sure that Poland, Hungry, Czech Republic, etc will just tell the EU to go take a long walk off a short pier. Of course, this will happen only if they remove themselves from the commu-fascist EU.

    If things go as they should, this may well be the start of the END of the EU – which be a very, VERY good thing

    And here I thought Canadian judges were bad. You have a handful of appointed globalists telling the democratically elected governments of sovereign nations what they must do inside their own borders. The people of Europe should hunt down and try for treason any asshole that got them into this mess and anybody that works for the EU because all they do is suppress nation’s rights.

    Fine if the judges take in the first ones into their homes to lead the way…….. You know, I have changed my mind the refugees should only go the the judges homes period.

    Can’t wait for Slovakia and Hungary to leave the EU. Bet the UK would give them trading deals.

    • Brett_McS

      Indeed. The UK has already made trade deals with lots of countries.

    Dear EU….what is it about the word NO that you don’t understand ?

    This ruling sounds like the perfect reason for leaving the EU. A blatant attack on sovereignty.

    And how will this ruling be enforced?
