Hungary aims to criminalize aiding illegal migration in 'Stop Soros' billBy Krisztina Than BUDAPEST (Reuters) – Individuals or groups who help migrants not entitled to protection to submit requests for asylum or who help illegal migrants to gain status to stay in Hungary will be liable to jail under a new bill submitted to parliament on Tuesday. In a separate bill, the government proposed amending the constitution to state that an “alien population” could not be settled in Hungary and foreign citizens could live in Hungary only if permitted by the national authorities. It also said that foreigners who sought to enter Hungary via a third country in which they were not directly exposed to persecution would not be entitled to asylum.
