Austria Sticks It to EU=> Vows to Keep Caps on Migrants It Will Allow to Cross Its Border
Migrants try to bust through road block on the Austrian border.
Austria vowed to stick to its plan to cap the number of migrants it will allow to cross its border on a daily basis.
This is despite threats from EU officials in Brussels.
Via Vlad Tepes:
EU elites told Austria that daily caps on migrants was against the law.
European Union Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos wrote to the Austrian government on Thursday to warn Vienna that its plan for a daily cap on the number of asylum seekers it would let across its border would break EU law.
“What the Austrians have decided is not according to European laws,” Avramopoulos told Reuters. “I am sending the letter telling them that what they decided to do is not compatible to the European legislation. The Austrians are obliged to accept asylum applications without putting a cap.”
Austria, on the migrant route from Turkey via Greece and the Balkans to Germany, said late on Wednesday that it would let in no more than 3,200 people a day from Friday.
