Refugees NOT Welcome in Budapest

Lessons Learned from Hungary

Hungary is very opposed to helping any refugees enter their country.  They’ve been in the news for kicking refugee children, for warning refugees to stay away, and for actually building a fence along their entire border.  Last summer, they had up to 10,000 refugees per day crossing the border, and today they have only 30 per day (the minimum required by the EU). Most Hungarians are un-apologetic about their nationalism, and sometimes this sounds like racism or hatred.  Check out more in my video blog:
