Hundreds of angry migrants demonstrated outside Budapest's Eastern Railway Terminus Tuesday demanding they be allowed to travel on to Germany, as European Union asylum rules came close to collapse under the strain of unprecedented migration.The decision to bar the migrants from westbound trains was a reversal from the previous day, when Hungary and Austria let trainloads of undocumented migrants leave for Germany, a violation of EU rules they now have little power to enforce.For now, however, there is no mechanism in place to distribute refugees or to enforce the so-called "Dublin rules," which require asylum-seekers to apply in the first EU country where they arrive.German Labor Minister Andrea Nahles said the influx of refugees and migrants would mean an additional 240,000-460,000 people would be entitled to social benefits next year, costing the government 3.3 billion euros ($3.7 billion).
