Hungary: More from NPR today.
From the Washington Post:
Let me see if I have this right: Sell them tickets but then cancel the trains. When one does run, it goes to a refugee camp and not to the border. Put up razor wire on your south border to keep them out, but for those who did get in ahead of the wire don’t let them leave. And be a good nationalist and denounce the refugees’ lack of Christianity.
I appreciate Hungary’s position in the matter, but this hardly looks like an effective solution. Note that most of the actions are governmental; the stories mention the generosity and kindness of many Hungarians not in official positions.
If they do get past Hungary, and to Germany (the favored destination), then this is next:
Figures I heard earlier gave Germany’s refugee numbers as 800,000 this year (projected). That’s 1% of their total population. For us that same percentage would mean taking in over 3,000,000 people in a year.
