Upon arrival, the first thing the journalist noticed was the concentration of foul odor in the air. The smell of human excrement was so strong that not even the gusty wind could blow it away.
The border area has been covered by incredible amount of garbage that marked the border region as far as the eye could see.
Most of the trees on the Slovenian side of the border are damaged due to broken branches that the migrants use to make fire that keep them warm during the night.
The migrants often complain that there is not enough tents available in the transit zones; as a result, many of them had to spend the night in the open.
Austrian police officers told the Hungarian journalist that the migrants are quite dangerous. They arrive by the thousands and brawls are quite frequent in the transit zones; but the mainstream media is forbidden to report the incidents to protect the country's good image said the police officers.
Is it true that a fence will be built on the border soon? asked the journalist. The officers replied that they didn't know but they would welcome it. (The term “fence” is now, blacklisted in the European Union; so much so that Austrian politicians don't dare to say it publicly. The intimidation of politicians in the EU is so great that when the construction of a “fence” on the Austrian – Slovenian border came up Austrian officials started talking gibberish calling the fence “construction work involve building revolving gates and iron bars”. PM Viktor Orbán even joked about this fanny language in his radio interview on Friday. This is the point! "Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad".)
Fights are regular feature of the refugee camps said the officers stressing that this was inevitable when so many people confined to such a small space. Most of the crimes committed inside the camps involve mobile phones thefts.
A police officer inquired about the Hungarian refugee situation. When he was told that yesterday "only four illegal immigrants managed to slip in the country" he said lucky you.
