The EU Is the Enemy of its Member States- One Example

Hat tip Gatestone Institute and Shirley

“In 2012, the ECHR enacted the so-called “HIRSI” ruling, named after the court case of Hirsi Jamaa and Others v. Italy, which states that the European states have the legal obligation to rescue migrants wherever they find them in the Mediterranean Sea — even just 200 meters away from the Libyan coast — and ferry them to the European shores, so that these people can claim the status of refugee.”

Minus the gulags and people disappearing into the dungeons of the KGB, the European Union is increasingly operating like the old USSR. It is bad enough that there are unelected bureaucrats in Brussels making decisions that affect the lives of European living in the member nations of the EU. They also have to live with legal decisions passed by two courts, one in Strasbourg and the other in Luxembourg.

Do you blame the Brits for voting to leave the EU? Keep a close eye on some of the newer, East European member nations. Already, Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia have formed a union called the Visegrad 4. They are fervently resisting pressure from the EU to admit floods of migrants into their countries. I hope they stand their ground. They are the only ones acting with some common sense.
