Hungary’s Prime Minister is on the warpath against refugees. Most asylum seekers are turned away at the country’s borders, and those already in Hungary are to be confined to container settlements.
Poland and Hungary are fighting against refugee redistribution, despite a clear ruling from the EU's highest court. Poland's right-wing government has copied many of its recent anti-democratic measures from Hungary.

The "real battle" over relocating migrants is just the beginning, Hungarian Prime Minister Orban said after the European Court of Justice backed Brussel's refugee quotas. His government will continue to reject migrants.
