Hungary Should Be Kicked Out Of EU For Ill Treatment Of Refugees – Luxembourg FM

Hungary should be suspended or even expelled from the EU for its approach to refugees, Luxembourg's foreign minister announced. Just days before leaders meet to discuss the future of the bloc, he stressed migrants are treated “nearly as bad as animals.”

Speaking to the German daily Die Welt, Jean Asselborn criticized Hungary for the way it has dealt with the refugee crisis, saying that such behavior should come with consequences.

“Anyone who, like Hungary, builds fences against refugees from war or who violates press freedom and judicial independence should be excluded temporarily, or if necessary for ever, from the EU,” Asselborn said as quoted by AP, adding that it's the only way to “preserve the cohesion and values of the European Union.”

He went on to claim that refugees are being treated “nearly as bad as animals” in Hungary.
