European Court to Issue Refugee Reception Quotas Decision This Week

5 September 2017

The EU Court of Justice will decide on the dispute started by Hungary and Slovakia, which oppose the legitimacy of the quotas plan for the reception of tens of thousands of asylum seekers in the EU.
The plan was launched in September 2015 to ease the burden of both Greece and Italy, which face a flow of migrants fleeing wars and poverty.

In a recent opinion, prosecutors suggested rejecting the arguments of the two eastern European countries against decisions they consider “illegal” and requiring them to receive foreigners, mostly Muslims, whose communities can not absorb them.

But whatever the decision on Wednesday, the “resettlement” of asylum seekers, which is supposed to embody European solidarity in the face of the migration crisis, will not bring about the results that were initially set.
As of August 31, weeks before the end date of the plan set for September, fewer than 28,000 people from Greece and Italy had been transferred out of 160,000 who should be deployed, according to the first target.
