A number of countries are allegedly preparing an ultimatum for Hungary and Poland to either accept more refugees or leave the European Union.

Both countries have ignored a push from the EU to relocate 160,000 migrants proportionally across the union. The Times reported Tuesday that Germany, France and up to 21 other countries are prepared to demand Hungary and Poland accept the quotas if they want to stay in the EU.

“They will have to make a choice: are they in the European system or not?” an unnamed senior diplomatic source told The Times. “You cannot blackmail the EU, unity has a price.”

The European Court of Justice is expected to rule in favor of quotas by the end of the year. If countries still refuse to cooperate, the EU will impose financial and political sanctions.
