Security threat? What’s that? The EU doesn’t care about any security threat — except, of course, the one from the so-called “far-right,” i.e., those who want to preserve their nations and not have them become Islamic colonies and jihad bases. The EU court action here is an attempt to force Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic to commit suicide the way Germany, France, and Britain are doing. If it succeeds, it will be the end of Europe altogether. If it fails, a bastion of freedom may remain in Central Europe as Western Europe submits to sharia.
“EU chiefs refer Poland, Hungary and Czech Republic to ECJ over migrant quotas”, by Nick Gutteridge, Express, December 7, 2017:
EU officials announced they have begun court action against Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic over their opposition to the bloc’s mandatory relocation scheme.
The decision is likely to provoke a furious response from the leaders of the three states, which have all argued that the programme presents a security threat to their citizens.
It risks once more plunging Brussels into a bitter and acrimonious battle with three of its newest member states, at a time when the bloc is trying to uphold its remarkable unity of Brexit.
In September Hungary and Slovakia lost an appeal to the ECJ against the legality of the scheme after arguing that it should have been taken by a unanimous decision of the member state.
After that case eurocrats wrote to all four states not honouring quotas, with Slovakia subsequently dropping their opposition, ordering them to immediately start taking in migrants.
In a statement the Commission said: “The replies received were again found not satisfactory and three countries have given no indication that they will contribute to the implementation of the relocation decision.
“This is why, the Commission has decided to move to the next stage of the infringement procedure and refer the three Member States to the Court of Justice of the EU.”
EU Commission first vice-president Frans Timmermans blasted: “There can be no free riders in serious crises. We must be able to depend on every single member state.”
He added that “there is no sea wide enough, no fence wide enough to stop people coming” and Europe must learn to adapt to modern migration patterns.
Hungary and Poland, which have right-wing populist governments, have previously vowed not to comply with any order from the EU to start taking in migrants saying it transgresses their sovereignty.
Both face heavy fines for failing to comply with any eventual ruling by the Luxembourg-based ECJ but have said they will face the consequences to carry out their voters wishes.
Hungary was today separately referred to the ECJ over a separate crackdown on foreign funded NGOs and educational establishment which is a crude attack on billionaire financier George Soros.
The EU set up the migrant quota scheme at the height of the 2015 with the intention of distributing 160,000 refugees around the bloc to ease the burden on Greece and Italy….
