Last week, full page ads appeared in both Lebanese and Jordanian newspapers warning migrants not to come to Hungary, stating that illegally crossing the border will get them thrown in prison. "Do not listen to the people smugglers. Hungary will not allow illegal immigrants to cross its territory." The ads were both in English and Arabic, opening with "Hungarians are hospitable, but the strongest possible action is taken against those who attempt to enter Hungary illegally".
Speaking in parliament Monday, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said millions of migrants are “laying siege” to Europe's borders: “the migrants are not just banging on our door, they are breaking it down”. Hungary's parliament on Monday voted to deploy troops to repel refugees from its border.
