Austria moves to block asylum-seekers with tough new rules

Migrant families on the Austrian side of the border between Hungary and Austria on September 11, 2015 near NickelsdorfAustria on Wednesday moved to further tighten migrants’ access to the country by placing tough new restrictions on asylum eligibility and making it easier to reject asylum seekers at the border. As of mid-May, the government will only accept cases of refugees facing threats to their safety in a neighbouring transit country or whose relatives are already in Austria. “We will not consider any asylum requests unless we have to because of certain criteria… like under the (European) Convention on Human Rights,” Interior Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner told a press conference in Vienna.
