The European Union has initiated legal action against the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland for failing to comply with a controversial order to take in thousands of migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
The so-called infringement procedure, which authorizes the European Commission, the powerful executive arm of the European Union, to sue member states that are considered to be in breach of their obligations under EU law, could lead to massive financial penalties.
Poland has a moral right to say ‘no’ to refugees, the country’s most powerful politician said on Saturday.
Jaroslaw Kaczynski, head of the ruling party Law and Justice (PiS), gave his views on immigration at a party convention in Przysucha, 100 km (60 miles) south of Warsaw.
“We have not exploited the countries from which these refugees are coming to Europe these days, we have not used their labor force and finally we have not invited them to Europe. We have a full moral right to say ‘no’,” Kaczynski said in a speech broadcast on television.

The only way to protect Poland from Islamic terror attacks is to not allow Muslims to migrate en masse. That is now the view of 71% of the people.
This is becoming the major issue in Poland and is at its core dispute with Brussels. As a reminder, Poland recently followed Hungary’s lead in corralling migrants…
Poland is mulling setting up special camps where asylum seekers would be housed in containers and kept behind fences in the event of another migration crisis, according to the country’s interior minister.
“The thing is to be ready for such a situation in the form of places in which those waiting for deportation would be kept who may try to break the law,” Mariusz B?aszczak told Polish radio on Tuesday. “That’s all it entails. Besides, there are similar container camps in France and in Germany.”

Hungary and Poland have explicitly opposed the EU plan that pressures them to taking in their share of the (committed) 160,000 Syrian, Eritrean and Iraqi asylum seekers from Greece and Italy. Now they risk sanctions, for the European Commission yesterday presented a deadline, already set in June.
The Commission wants Poland and Hungary to take action immediately, as the EU Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos told reporters in Strasbourg:
Globalist candidate Macron has threatened Poland with sanctions if he becomes France’s new leader on 7 May. Speaking to several newspapers he said: “When the rights and values of the European Union are not respected, I want sanctions to be taken,” referring to the refusal of Poland to take in migrants from Italy and Greece, Reuters reports.
‘Poland has officially welcomed the US soldiers who will form the backbone of NATO’s multinational battalion in the country as part of the bloc’s enhanced strategy to contain Russia. President Duda said it is something Poles have “dreamt of for generations.”
The American contingent of 900 troops, who arrived in Poland in March, will serve side by side on a rotational basis with 150 British and 120 Romanians soldiers in Orzysz.
In the future, the battalion will be joined by the Croats who entered NATO in the sixth enlargement in 2009.’
