Poland is vowing to fight the EU in court over migrant relocation quotas, and accused the European Commission of creating a security risk.
European Commission launched legal action against Poland for its refusal to take asylum seekers from Greece and Italy, so Poland responded with a motion to the European Commission requesting it to discontinue its “ongoing infringement procedure.” Poland are prepared to argue their case before the Court of Justice of the European Union.
When Poland’s Law and Justice party won power two years ago, they boycotted EU migrant quotas. “Law and Justice has said Muslim asylum seekers were a terrorist threat,” EUobserver reported.
“Paris, Stockholm, Brussels, Berlin, Manchester, Barcelona: How many more European cities have to be hit by terrorists so that the European Union wakes up? So the European Commission acknowledges that accepting blindly all those who come to the European shores is akin to putting a noose around Europe’s neck?” Polish interior minister Mariusz Blaszczak said.
According to EUobserver, 57% of Poles would rather lose EU funds than take in Muslim migrants.
