The Hungarian government has published legislation designed to make that country as unattractive as possible for nonwhite invaders—including a move to reject all “integration measures.”
The law will cut cash subsidies for “asylum seekers,” drastically reduce the individual space they are allocated in detention centers to the same size that prison inmates have, and “eliminate their assistance in assimilating into society.”
Other measures in the law, which will go into effect on April 1, include reducing the time an asylum seeker can remain in a detention center from two months to one, reducing an asylum seeker’s eligibility for state healthcare from one year to six months, and revoking their monthly payment of HUF 7,125 (US$25).
These proposed amendments to the Asylum Act and related government decrees are intended to align the rights and payments afforded to refugees with those offered to Hungarian citizens, the government said. It will also eliminate some subsidies, such as funds aimed at supporting education.
“The main goal of the tightening is to reduce social subsidies for asylum seekers and those who receive international protection,” the government said in a statement, adding that this could help prevent economic migrants seeking asylum in Hungary in the hope of a better life.
Of that number 151,965 were classified as “non-European” by the Hungarian Office of Immigration and Nationality, with the remaining 25,170 being classified as “European.” The majority of this latter number were from Kosovo.
Of the 177,130 “asylum applicants,” the Hungarian government granted protection or asylum to exactly 508 people, while it “suspended” the applications of another 152,260, because they moved on toward Germany.
Some 2,917 were rejected out of hand, and as of December 31, 2015, there were some 36,694 pending cases—in other words, that figure reflects the number of invaders in Hungarian detention centers as of that date.
