EU trying to destabilize Eastern Block members by forcing them to take in refugees

Legal Insurrection:
Hungary, Poland, and the Czech Republic are in breach of the European Union law by refusing to take in migrants under the bloc’s mandatory migrant quota scheme, the top EU legal adviser says. According to Advocate General Eleanor Sharpston, who advises the European Court of Justice (ECJ), the members countries of the bloc have “no legitimate security grounds to reject the quota scheme” that proposes to settle hundreds of thousands migrants arriving in Europe.

The eastern European countries are facing legal action at the top EU court, the European Court of Justice (ECJ), for blocking the EU plan to assign each country with a quota of migrants to take in. The Eastern European countries have so far frustrated Brussels’ efforts to impose mandatory quotas on member states for the mass resettlement of migrants from North Africa and the Middle East swarming the continent through the Mediterranean route.

Poland rejected the Advocate General’s statement citing the government’s duty to ensure the safety of its people. “Our actions were dictated by the interests of Polish citizens and the need for protection against uncontrolled migration,” Piotr Muller, spokesman for the Polish government, said.

The German public broadcaster Deutsche Welle reported the legal advisory given to the top EU court:

Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic broke EU law by refusing to accept asylum seekers under the bloc’s mandatory migrant quota scheme, an advisory body to the European Court of Justice said on Thursday.

In December 2017, the European Commission took the three EU member states to Europe’s top court after they refused to take in refugees who arrived in Greece and Italy at the height of the 2015 migrant crisis.

The former communist states had argued that accepting asylum seekers would threaten security and cultural cohesion — and that Brussels had no legal grounds to implement mandatory migration quotas.

In an opinion advising the European Court of Justice, Advocate General Eleanor Sharpston said Hungary, Poland, and the Czech Republic had no legitimate security grounds to reject the quota scheme.
The advisories issued by the EU Advocate General are “not legally binding but are often followed by the court,” German public broadcaster Deutsche Welle noted in a separate article. An EU court ruling against these countries could pave the way for punitive fines and sanctions. German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government has long been calling for such actions against the countries refusing to open their borders to migrants.

The EU legal advisory comes amid fears of a new migrant wave like the one witnessed in the autumn of 2015. German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer warned of a migrant influx that could overwhelm his country. Germany could “experience a wave of refugees like in 2015 – or perhaps an even larger one,” Seehofer said last month.

The EU court is the same one that insisted that the Uk could not deport terrorists back to their country of origin because those countries did not have a stellar human rights record.  The Court said that the UK's own security situation was to be overridden by the "human rights" of terrorists trying to kill its citizens. I can understand why Hungary, Poland, and the Czech Republic don't want the burden of dealing with potential terrorists.

This goofy court is one of the reasons the UK voted for Brexit.
