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.
The Hungarian prime minister has promised a hefty tax on refugee aid organizations as he vies for a third term in office. He warned in his annual state of the nation address that Muslim immigration would destroy Europe.
Israel has begun notifying African asylum seekers that they have two months to leave for an unnamed third country. Outrage over the plan has long simmered among liberal Israelis and international rights groups.
The European Court of Justice has ruled that sexual orientation tests can't be used to rule on asylum applications. Hungarian officials sought to examine a Nigerian man's application on the grounds that he is gay.
A lack of EU solidarity over the refugee crisis has placed an "intolerable burden" on Italy and Greece, says Michael O'Flaherty, director of the EU Fundamental Rights Agency. He meets Michel Friedman on Conflict Zone.
