I rest my case.
I'm going to leave this conversation. Those migrants are perfectly safe and sound in Hungarian shelters but they refuse to go there because it's not what they want? Well I got news for them, a couple hundred of kilometers east of where they are, there are people trapped in bombed cities with nowhere to go who'd be desperate to get in a Hungarian refuge camp because that's where they are safe.
I saw that on the BBC earlier tonight, and I understand the refugees who poured on that train in Budapest had been told that the train was bound for Austria
, which is where they all want to get as a next stop to Germany. All day there had been no trains at all exiting Hungary, the regime is trying to keep a no-exit ring at the borders while they're building a physical border fence in the south to block access. Normally Budapest is a busy international train junction, but the desire of the regime to keep the refugees contained has stopped all rail traffic in and out of the country.
So when the train stopped at that camp site in Bicske, 25 miles outside of Budapest, and police went on the train to force them off, it's not hard to understand they saw themselves getting betrayed, double crossed. The reason they want to get out of Hungary without registering there, just moving through as fast as possible, is because they know the Hungarian government doesn't want anything to do with them and is more than likely to drag its feet on any kind of care forthem or handling their papers.
The Hungarian cabinet seems intent on just "sitting out" the situation to the point where they can deport the refugees back south and activate their border fence. I think most people would have fought being taken off that train in a place no one had been told they were going to. Especially if one has fled from a war and knows how easy it is for troops to stage some kind of hoax with dangerous consequences.
Edit: I'd agree with Ebadger: refugee camps are not safe, especially not when those who run the country blatantly don't want those people around and are treating them and their conditions as a kind of bargaining chip vs the governments of other EU countries. Hungary is not just in a standoff against the refugees, but also a standoff with Germany and other EU countries
