Slovakia has apparently reintroduced border controls with Austria and Hungary.

A mess. A complete mess.

Austria will introduce border controls to Hungary too.

I read that the Netherlands, Poland and Czech Republic could also do it.

The "Hungarian camera woman kicking and tripping migrants" story made big news in the biased, migrant-abetting mainstream press (while no word about savage migrants throwing stones at local population for example).

Shortly afterward, the Tunisian news portal arabesque.tn has identified the migrant "tripped" by the camera woman as Osama el-Abd el-Mohsen, a Sunnite islamist and vivid supporter of the Islamic State terror group. In a 2013 facebook entry, he praised the IS murderers and terrorists as "warriors fighting a holy war".





The poor refugee has safely arrived to Munich with his children:



He is now said to threaten to sue the camera woman since due to her action, police (whom he was fleeing from) caught him again and took his fingerprints, which will reduce his chances of remaining in Germany.

Yes, indeed. After years of disdain for democracy and European solidarity, Budapest is making life harder for desperate people fleeing war zones. The rest of the continent must stand up against this rotten regime.

The urgency of bringing thousands of desperate people to safety, and of hammering out sustainable and efficient EU asylum policies, must not become an excuse for indulging Mr Orbán’s toxic words. They must be countered and denounced.

He cloaks his policies in legalistic terms, arguing that Hungary cannot be faulted for strictly abiding by the EU’s Dublin asylum regulations, and yet both the language he uses and the decisions he takes run counter to the very spirit of Europe.

EU institutions have failed in the past to hold him accountable for trampling on Europe’s values – now is the time to do so.

Hehh, isn't that a little bit too narrow minded?

Despite her apologies, László certainly looks like a "...heartless, racist, children-kicking camerawoman..." in the video footage.

The man carrying the child showed far more restraint than I would have.

She did a mistake, no question. But who cares?

Today I drove to Slovenia via Fernetti/Sezana border crossing. At the border there were both Italian and Slovenian police performing random controls.

Hungary is the only country which sticked to EU rules in this mess. What are you talking about? The other countries dont handle this situation any better.

The usual biased, pathetic, ignorant, migrant-pitying ramblings ...

It should be mentioned that about 95% of the readers commenting beneath seriously disagree with the article. Numerous longer comments very clearly highlight why.
One might believe we arrived in a time where the readers have to provide information to the newspaper, and not vice versa ...

If there's someone who is acting clearly against international and Europen laws, that's Mrs Angie. She's encouraging thousands of people to cross serveral borders illegally and helps criminal human trafficker to earn big dirty money.
