Austria Borders on Rebellion Over Refugee Crisis

Austrians are increasingly concerned over the refugee influx into the country, latest opinion polls show. And those who helped refugees stranded on the Hungarian border to get into Austria could face prosecution for “people smuggling”.

According to a new survey, 60 percent of Austrians say they are worried, and even scared, by the continuing arrival of huge numbers of refugees and migrants.

In a poll by Unique Research, 35 percent of respondents said they wanted the government to stop accepting any more refugees.

Sixteen percent were in favor of Freedom Party leader Heinz Christian Strache’s solutions to the crisis, which include constructing border fences anywhere where refugees and illegal migrants are trying to enter Austria.

Strache has been vocal in his criticism of the government’s approach to the crisis, saying that Austria had become “almost a Banana republic” with the government providing a “catering service” for passing illegal migrants.

The government has said that it expects 85,000 asylum requests this year. To date, there have been 63,000, with as many as 500 per day last week, making Austria one of the highest recipients in Europe on a per-capita basis.
