Transcript for Gates of Europe Closing as Refugees Continue to Attempt Passage
That fire is still burning very, very hot. It will be cooler. We'll look for a shift in the weather pattern. But 9 to 10 degrees cooler tomorrow. And a little bit more humidity, that's the saying it's overwhelmed, imposing temporary border controls. Terry Moran, traveling with some of those refugees tonight. Reporter: Soldiers with assault rifles, attack dogs patrolling the Hungarian border. The new reality. Starting Tuesday, refugees caught in Hungary will be prosecuted as criminals. The Gates of Europe are closing. Even in Germany, where 15,000 have arrived here in Munich this weekend alone, warmly greeted. There will be no more open door. The trains from Austria, halted. Passport controls reinstated. For those already here, the relief, the gratitude is profound. Like Mohamed hill and his family, whom we know so well. "In Germany, we felt like human beings," he tells me, after they made it here yesterday. 18 days, we have been with them. From Turkey to the dreaded boat crossing, through the balkans, then a traumatizing week in a Hungarian camp. Crossing into Austria with them. And finally here today, a quiet park in dusseldorf, near their temporary home. Baby fahed, safe at last. But as we talk, Mohammed startles me. If the war ended in Syria, would you go home to Syria? Would you go back? "Yes, of course," he says. "If the war ends today in Syria, I'll go home tomorrow." But so many more are still coming. As this crisis deepens, they can't go forward, they won't go back, and the nights are getting colder. Terry Moran, ABC news, Munich.
