Millions of Syrians are trying to escape the war-torn region by running to Europe; however, some countries don’t want any more migrants getting past their borders.
Hungary recently announced they don’t want any more Muslims because the refugee crisis has become too much to handle, and it appears that they have taken action to make sure no more come in.
Hungary has closed its borders and declared a state of emergency on Tuesday after riots broke out just outside the country’s border fence.
According to Breitbart, Hungarian police have opened fire with tear gas against 1,500 rioting migrants who are attempting to break through the country’s border fence. Migrants have been chanting “Allahu Akbar” while pelting police officers with large rocks, bottles, and food — making this “refugee crisis” look like it’s verging on all-out war.

There are reports that some migrants have managed to break through the border fence, and Hungarian police have begun to use the water cannon to deter the rioting migrants. Dozens of refugees are climbing onto local building and hurling rocks at the border police, while others find more ammunition to keep a constant supply going.
One Sky News correspondent reluctantly reported this afternoon that most of the migrants, “about 70 percent” were men. “There are families too,” he hastily added.
The pro-migration charity Save The Children disputed the United Nations’ own statistics, claiming that most of those involved were not in fact men.

Meanwhile, the six wealthy Gulf countries — Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Bahrain — have not offered any resettlement places to Syrian refugees.
Reuters reports that Serbia says it has been informed by Hungary that the Roszke-Horgos border crossing will be closed for the next 30 days, and that Hungarian humvees with mounted guns are moving towards the Serbia border.
Hungary has begun construction on another border fence in the past few days, and this time the fence will be on its Romanian border. The country has positioned military vehicles along its border to scare off migrants.
