Hungary Passes 'Stop Soros' Laws, Bans Aid To Undocumented Immigrants

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, pictured at a meeting with Polish president on May 14, campaigned on an anti-immigrant platform. On Monday the right-wing party passed legislation banning aid organizations and individuals from helping asylum-seekers.

The right-wing parliament made it illegal for organizations and individuals to help asylum-seekers. A separate constitutional amendment declared an “alien population” can’t be settled in the country.
