Austria rethinks asylum rules as migrants to relocate from Greece

Refugees and migrants wait to cross the Slovenian-Austrian border from the Slovenian city of Sentilj, on November 3, 2015Austria sought to tighten asylum rules in the face of a record influx of migrants, hours before the first refugees are set to be relocated from Greece Wednesday under a faltering EU plan to ease the burden on southern countries. Facing a record influx of migrants and a surge in support for the anti-immigration far-right, Austrian lawmakers have put forward a bill that would mean anyone granted asylum would be reassessed after three years and sent back if their country of origin is deemed safe. Chancellor Werner Faymann said the controversial legislation, due to go before parliament in December, is a “signal that asylum is something which is temporary” and is aimed at deterring people from coming to Austria.
