Poland Bashes Immigrants, but Quietly Takes Christian Ones

Poland

Check out this NYT piece: Poland Bashes Immigrants, but Quietly Takes Christian Ones. Poland has been vocally anti-immigrant in recent years, with far-right politicians coming into power on a chorus of "Poland for Poles."

But recently, Poland has been experiencing "the largest influx of migrant workers in the country’s modern history — though they are mostly Christians from neighboring Ukraine."

It's interesting to compare this story about Poland with the recent reporting on Hungary accepting Venezuelan migrants. Here are two European nations, both generally anti-migrant, but both accepting certain, limited migrants with a goal towards some sort of cultural cohesiveness.
