Earlier on Tuesday, main official border crossing point between Serbia and Hungary was closed to refugees by the Hungarian authorities.

Hundreds of migrants and refugees have pressed against the barrier demanding to cross the border and enter Hungary. Banging on the metal barrier, they shouted “open border, open border!” Police stood by on the other side.

Many of the asylum seekers are sitting on the main highway from Serbia to Hungary.

“I will sit here until they open the border. I cannot go back to Syria. Life in Syria is finished,” a Kurd from Syria said.

On Tuesday, police rounded up 9,380 migrants crossing Hungary from Serbia, police told Reuters.

Budapest announced it will reject refugees illegally entering the country from neighboring Serbia.

“Certainly, as that is the international legal rule, therefore it must be done that way,” said government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs.

  1. That’s right. Get those (very, very few) precious little waifs right up front for the photo op! (Precious PR commodity that they are.)

  2. How nice would it be to stand on the other side with a nice hot meat pie with sauce or a garlic pizza munching out while those criminals starve. All the while smiling and giving them the middle finger 🙂

    I could handle that, it wouldn’t worry or faze me in the least.

    Oh and to rub it in a little more bring diggers in to ditch on the side of the road and point at them and smile, ‘that’s for you’.

  3. Mad Merkel made a UNILATERAL decision to declare Germany as an open border country, everyone can come and get asylum and asylum benefits. How could she do such a thing?! Then she and her sycophants (Juncker, Federica, etc.) demand that all the other EU countries must take in these so called ‘refugees’ flooding into Europe trying to get to Germany. Screw you Merkel.
