Remember Brexit? The United Kingdom in 2016 decided to leave the European Union. Anger over immigration fueled the vote in favor of leaving the EU.
Ferment continues over immigration in the EU. The latest evidence of the turmoil comes from Hungary.
"Hungary refuses to change immigration policies despite a ruling from the European Court of Justice, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said [yesterday], potentially resulting in heavy fines from the European Union.
Last year, the European Court of Justice ruled that Hungary had failed to follow EU law by creating pushbacks of people entering the country without permission, refusing them the right to apply for asylum, and detaining them in `transit zones' along Hungary's southern border with Serbia."
