Hungary to be fined €1m a day until it complies with EU law on migrants

The evil EU, intent on destroying Europe. This is why I do not support the West in its war on Russia in Ukraine.
The European Court of Justice will fine Hungary €1 million (£845,000) every day until it stops breaking EU law and takes in more migrants. Hungary was guilty of “unprecedented and extremely serious infringement” of European laws on claiming asylum and deportations of illegal migrants”, the EU’s top court said. Budapest was hit with a £169 million fine for breaking EU asylum law and warned there would be additional daily fines until it observes the rules.
Viktor Orban, Hungary’s long-serving anti-migrant prime minister, said that the “outrageous and unacceptable” fines were for “defending the borders of the European Union”. He said: “It seems that illegal migrants are more important to the Brussels bureaucrats than their own European citizens.”
Mr Orban has regularly been at loggerheads with the EU over asylum policy since the migration crisis of 2015. More than a million Syrians passed through Hungary during the crisis as the government erected border fences and introduced hard-line policies.
Hungary’s fenced southern border with Serbia remains a target for migrants hoping to reach EU territory through the Balkans from Turkey, before travelling to richer countries such as Germany. …
EU solidarity being ‘undermined’

The European Commission brought a fresh case against Hungary because it felt that it had not complied with the judgement, except in the case of the transit zones.

Brussels made the rare move of asking for financial penalties to be imposed and EU judges agreed in a judgement delivered on Thursday.

The court said that Hungarian lawbreaking undermined solidarity among EU countries and passed the responsibility [responsibility??] for the migrants onto other member states.

EU member states have spent years trying to reform the bloc’s migration rules.

A new policy to speed up asylum procedures calls on counties to accept migrants from “front-line states” or pay €20,000 for each person they refuse.

Hungary has vowed to take no migrants from countries such as Italy, Greece and Spain, which have borne the brunt of illegal migration into the EU.

Budapest will take over the rotating presidency of the EU on July 1.

It will be entrusted with brokering intergovernmental agreements on policy, including the allocation of the bloc’s top jobs after European elections in which anti-migrant hard-Right parties made big gains.

    Perfect time for Hungary🇭🇺 to re-consider EU membership. Orban is a Hero, and a very common sense oriented Patriot. Migrants are not a priority for Europeans, only for globalists ….who no one pays attention to. European Union is already falling apart. With the rise of Right-wingers in Europe, these “sanctions” won’t last.

    Surely Orban could see long ago where this was all headed. I don’t get why the Visegrad group didn’t form their own union. Now Poland and Czechia have become more woke and lackeys for Ukraine war.
