The Syrian refugee crisis is continuing to mow down the sovereignty of European nations, as its backing by the E.U. is ruffling feathers across the continent.
Poland, Hungary, and Slovakia are all facing international criticisms after bucking the European Union’s suggested quota of migrants to relocate within their borders. Given the trouble that these refugees have caused in locals such as Sweden and Germany, the defiant nations are likely making the more prudent decision, however, the powers that be in Europe have been none too pleased.
Now, as Germany faces a particularly testy situation with a mass influx of Middle Eastern migrants, a housing shortage has developed in the seat of Europe’s cohesive union. This has caused the German government to do the unthinkable.
“Authorities in Hamburg, the second-largest city in Germany, have begun confiscating private dwellings to ease a housing shortage — one that has been acutely exacerbated by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision to allow more than two million migrants into the country in recent years.
“City officials have been seizing commercial properties and converting them into migrant shelters since late 2015, when Merkel opened German borders to hundreds of thousands of migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Now, however, the city is expropriating residential property units owned by private citizens.
“In an unprecedented move, Hamburg authorities recently confiscated six residential units in the Hamm district near the city center.The units, which are owned by a private landlord, are in need of repair and have been vacant since 2012. A trustee appointed by the city is now renovating the properties and will rent them — against the will of the owner — to tenants chosen by the city. District spokeswoman Sorina Weiland said that all renovation costs will be billed to the owner of the properties.”
This rampant abuse of globalist force should concern not only those in Hamburg, Germany, but home owners around the world. Not only are these migrants being forced upon the unwilling masses of sovereign nations, now, private property is falling victim to this ridiculous farce as well.
With an enormous increase in violent crime in migrant-heavy areas, combined with Germany’s hasty seizure of private property, it should be expected that a great deal more of Europe’s nations will soon find themselves aligned with Hungary and her colleagues in refusing to capitulate the European Union.
Should the E.U. refuse to take the hint, Britain’s Brexit maneuver could become the model by which the rest of Europe escapes its globalist clutches.
