Hungary Becomes the First Country to Shut Its Doors to Migrants:

Hungary becomes the first country to shut its doors to migrants: Syrian family will be one of the last to enter illegally as the country begins erecting 100-mile-long fence along its borders


Hungary has begun the construction of 100-mile-long barrier on its border
It hopes to stem flow of migrants - 67,000 have entered so far this year
Germany has criticised the idea but Hungary says situation is 'untenable'
Today a Syrian family were among last to successfully enter the country




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.

Heading to Europe: Migration figures for 2015 alone show almost 80,000 have so far this year entered Greece, 67,000 have reached Hungary via the Balkans, and another 67,000 have landed in Italy and Malta

Pictures show the Syrian family resting after having crossed from Serbia into the EU bloc's visa-free zone that begins in Hungary.
Among the group are elderly and young children, all of whom have travelled a massive distance in a desperate bid to escape the war engulfing Syria.


They are among the lucky final few to reach Hungary successfully - today military personnel began working on a 490ft 'sample section' of the fence designed to stop such crossings.
Located on the outskirts of the town of Morahalom, a bulldozer and other heavy machinery today began preparing the ground for construction.
The mayor of Morahalom, Zoltan Nogradi, said he had not been told in advance about the start of construction, but welcomed the initiative.
'There has been no better idea to resolve this untenable situation,' he said.
In the face of criticism from Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel, government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs said Hungary was committed to building the fence, which it claims is a temporary measure.
Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto had said earlier the 13ft-high fence would be built first in the eight to 10 areas 'most exposed to the immigration pressure' along the 100mile-long border between Hungary and Serbia.
Hungary has registered almost 70,000 migrants so far this year, compared with 43,000 in the whole of last year.









The 13ft-high, 100mile-long wall will be built across the country's border with Serbia (illustrated). The border is one of the main crossings exploited by migrants hoping to reach the EU

Most migrants travel on to wealthier parts of the EU, but Hungary's government has said those states might send illegal migrants back to Hungary.
It blocked just such a move last month, provoking tensions with Vienna.
Tens of thousands of migrants, mainly from the Middle East and Africa, use the Balkans route to get into the European Union, passing from Greece to Macedonia and Serbia and then into Hungary.
Shelters in Hungary and Austria are overcrowded and late last month Hungarian police used tear gas to subdue hundreds of migrants fighting each other and throwing rocks in a camp in the eastern city Debrecen.
The United Nations and the Council of Europe have criticised changes to Hungary's asylum laws, saying they would harm asylum-seekers' right to seek safety there and put them at risk.
The movement of migrants into Europe has this year reached unprecedented levels. So far this year, border crossings into Greece have hit 80,000.
Dangerous Mediterranean Sea crossings into Italy and Malta number 67,000, as has the 'Balkan route' through Serbia.




Two soldiers stand guard at the Hungarian-Serbia border near the town of Morahalom, where the first section of the massive 13ft-high wall will be built



Although the wall has been subjected to criticism from Germany, Hungarian leaders say its migration crisis has become 'untenable



More than 67,000 people have illegally crossed into Hungary so far this year, inan unprecedented level of illegal migration into Europe

Re: Hungary Becomes the First Country to Shut Its Doors to Migrants:

They had some very good reason to make such a drastic decision, too bad the other two weak rings of the chain (Italy and Greece) will never be able to do the same as it's too difficult to build walls in the Mediterranean Sea: the situation is desperate, that's all there is to it.

Re: Hungary Becomes the First Country to Shut Its Doors to Migrants:

Good for them. Just seems logical that every country should have a secure border.... Migrants are like cockroaches - they manifest in every nook and cranny, a wall ain't going to stop them, unfortunately!

Germany criticizing another country for building a WALL
Germany are starting to develop some people that are wanting to put a stop to it as well.

Good on them and hope it isn't already too late for them to end up like here in the UK

Germany criticizing another country for building a WALL
The Soviets were the one's who put up the wall.

And they must mean illegal immigrants. Migrants are usually citizens/natives who travel throughout their own country looking for work.

hope the wall has loads of machine gun towers on it...after travelling 2000km by foot a 13ft wall isn't going to stop anybody without a little help

This is exactly what the U.S needs to be doing.

I think Germany is well on its way to another upset- especially now that the immigrants there have caught the interest of the likes of Angela Davis.

I agree. But if migrants know a nation has a secured border, and won't allow entry. This would become less of a problem. In the US, once your feet hit American soil, there's a good chance we will let you stay. And they know it. That's why so many come with a minor, it basically guarantees you get to stay.
