Hungary Begins Construction On Second Border Wall

Migrants cue to enter Austria in Sentilj Slovenia Thursday Oct. 29 2015 Darko Bandic Number of Asylum Seekers in EU Doubles More Than Half Head to Hungary

On Monday, a European Parliament committee was also planning to discuss the state of fundamental rights in the country. "For this reason, we are strengthening the defense of our southern border".

The Hungarian ministry of agriculture has announced that Hungary and Slovakia will call on the European Commission to consider eliminating "double standards in quality" of food products sold by companies in Eastern Europe and in the west.

It effectively blocked the route to Germany, where many were heading, but Hungary has said a second fence would make the barrier more effective and hold back migrants while processing their asylum requests.

Poles for the second fence are already standing near the border station Kelebia, and construction materials have also been shipped to the border elsewhere.

The government of populist prime minister Viktor Orban says the new "smart" fence - equipped with heat-sensitive cameras, motion detectors and other high-tech features - is required to stop all illegal migration and prepare for what Hungarian officials say could be a resurgence in the refugee crisis this year.

Stalin also clarified that he did not want to criticise Jayalalithaa personally, since it would not be political civility. Deepa also said that she would contest Assembly elections from the RK Nagar constituency in Chennai .

Orban's hardline policies have drawn criticism from outside observers, with rights groups Hungarian Helsinki Committee and Human Rights Watch sending a complaint on Friday to the EU Migration Commissioner over the country's proposed policies.

Hungary has started building a second layer of security fencing to prevent refugees and migrants from crossing its southern borders, and plans to tighten its asylum law further - despite fierce criticism from major global rights groups.

The Hungarian government's practice of allowing only 10 people in per day also creates a unsafe bottleneck along the Hungary-Serbia border in sometimes inhumane conditions, the rights groups added.

Hungary already has one wired fence separating itself from Serbia.

"They treat us like animals, and we are humans", Khan said. In an open letter to the European Commission, they wrote that the new fence would violate EU rules by "severely" limiting access to asylum for refugees.
