The Austrians have made a last ditch effort for cultural survival by closing the border and setting strict quotas on the number of illegals that are entering the country. The European Union and Germany are reacting harshly.

Since 8am, a maximum of 80 migrants per day are being allowed to claim asylum in the country, police said. In addition, Vienna is limiting the daily number of people transiting Austria to seek asylum in a neighbouring country to 3,200. Once the quotas have been reached, "the borders will be closed," police spokesman Fritz Grundnig told AFP.
He added that due to bad weather, no migrant had arrived at the Austrian-Slovenian frontier since Thursday afternoon.
Is the weather stopping migrants at other national borders? Or only the country that cut back to 80 a day?
Could a leaked German document showing that 'refugees' committed 208,344 crimes in 2014 and 2015 have informed the Austrian decision?
